Stephen Colbert, Comedy Central’s premiere provocateur and host of The Colbert Report, recently declared his intentions to run for the presidency of the United States. Unfortunately, as ABC News reported, the next GOP primary in South Carolina doesn’t allow write-in ballots, all but denying Colbert the real chance to run during the state’s primary this weekend.

The “technicality,” as Colbert put it, wouldn’t keep him from extending an almost never-ending joke on his nightly program. On Monday, Colbert took to the airwaves and advised his loyal viewers to participate in the open primary in SC by voting for Herman Cain – the GOP candidate who dropped out amidst sexual misconduct allegations — in place of his own name. Apparently, Cain’s name is still printed on South Carolina ballots, thus providing a fortunate window of opportunity for another political gag.

Colbert’s newest declaration led to the production of an ad by Americans For A Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow, the Super PAC created by Stephen Colbert, showing Stephen Colbert in place of Herman Cain. Has Colbert turned the SC Primary on its wobbly head? The Huffington Post reported that Herman Cain found the ad “clever and humorous.” What do you think? Watch the ad and let us know.
