Stephen Colbert continued his campaign to become the Presidents of the United States of America of South Carolina, hosting a political rally in South Carolina yesterday along with noted ass man and former presidential candidate, Herman Cain. He gave a rousing satirical speech skewering Super Pacs (“You don’t have to be a billionaire to be President of the United States; you just have to know one”) and capped it all off with a gospel choir performing “This Little Light of Mine” with Cain in attendance.

And if you’re curious, Stephen Colbert’s “Vote for Cain” campaign merited Herman Cain 6,000 votes in last night’s primary, good for one percent of the vote (and significantly better than Cain’s 45 votes in Iowa and 160 votes in New Hampshire).

That’s the power of fake democracy, folks.
