Stephen Colbert Endorses His Sister's Republican Opponents

After almost a month of not mentioning his sister's bid for Tim Scott's House seat in South Carolina, the Colbert Report host unleashes the "Colbert Bump."

Posted on February 7, 2013, at 12:36 p.m. ET

First, Colbert gave a brilliant, non-endorsement of his sister's Congressional run on the Democratic ticket.

“As a broadcast journalist I am obligated to maintain pure objectivity. It doesn’t matter that my sister is intelligent, hardworking, compassionate and dedicated to the people of South Carolina.”

Now, for the "big names" on the Republican ticket.
