Newt, Schmewt. Mitt, Schmitt.
Herman Cain dropped out of the presidential race months ago, but that won't stop Stephen Colbert from rallying for him in advance of today's primary.
The Comedy Central host hit the campus of the College of Charleston Friday, joined by over 3,000 students, a marching band, cheerleaders, and Cain:
Colbert, who toyed with running in the South Carolina GOP primary himself, was waylaid by the technicality of not getting his name on the ballot in time.
Cain, who abandoned his bid in the fall after a brief surge to the top of the polls, happens to still be on the ballot, so Colbert threw his support to Cain.
A gospel choir sang "This Little Light of Mine" before Colbert delivered an address at the "Rock Me Like a Herman Cain: South Cain-Olina Primary Rally."
