Stephen Colbert Begins Presidential Campaign In South Carolina

Stephen Colbert's satirical presidential campaign began with a visit this week to the University of South Carolina.

'The Colbert Report' host is running as a 'favorite son' candidate in South Carolina, where he plans to 'compete' in both the Democratic and Republican primaries. Why? Colbert says so he can lose twice.

And even though he may not to be a real politician, he already knows how to make promises he can't keep and misuse use the English language: "I promise, if elected, I will crush the state of Georgia. Our peaches are more numerous than Georgia's. They are more juiciful."

According to a Rasmussen Reports poll released last week, Colbert is surprisingly supported by 28 percent of voters aged 18-29 when pitted against Hillary Clinton and Rudy Giuliani.

But will Colbert become a regular on the campaign trail? Think about this, if the Writers Guild of America go on strike, which could happen as soon as this Wednesday, 'The Colbert Report' would go into reruns, which would give Colbert plenty of time to make more outrageous campaign promises.
