South Carolina ETC invites Colbert to announce presidential bid

After Stephen Colbert announced last week on CNN’s Larry King that he might be running for president (on Republican and Democratic tickets), South Carolina ETV invited Colbert to formally announce his campaign on its air. South Carolina is Colbert’s home state. Colbert’s byline appeared Sunday in the New York Times, apparently the result of Maureen Dowd’s dare that he write an Op-Ed. In his column, Colbert discusses his presidential aspirations and writes “I want to return to a simpler America where we ate our meat off the end of a sharpened stick.”
