Stephen Colbert, Jeb! Bush Get Into Intense VIP-Offer War


In what is probably Colbert's last pre-show web video (his words), the soon-to-be late-night host takes issue with a brazen Late Show email Jeb! Bush sent to his supporters earlier this week.

"Today we're formally launching our Stephen Colbert Late Show contest, where we'll fly one lucky winner to New York" with a "VIP ticket to the very first taping of the Late Show with a new host," the email read. To initially enter, Jeb! wanted a $3 contribution to his campaign. It's as easy as that, right? Wrong. Colbert responded thusly:
