Stephen Colbert's "Rock Me Like a Herman Cain" rally drew 5,000 in Charleston. That's about 20 times more than the real GOP candidates were able to attract.

You can see more by clicking here.

Is it possible that Herman Cain does NOT know that Colbert is ridiculing him and the GOP candidates still in the race? Or is Rachel Maddow right, and he was just been some strange political art project all along?

    Herman Cain is going to give the Tea Party's rebuttal speech to President Obama's state of the union address on Tuesday.

    I can't believe anyone in the Tea Party actually takes him seriously. He is just out for attention. The more name recognition he has, the more he can earn.

    Ever-knowing, "First super Dude" has a letter at newt.org under "most recent news." He is an idiot just like First Dudess.

    Stephen Colbert Draws 10 Times More People Than Mitt Romney Does

    Things are getting so bad for Mitt Romney that Stephen Colbert outdrew him ten fold when they both held rallies in South Carolina.

    Despite his claims of having momentum in the state, numerous media outlets are reporting that enthusiasm for Mitt Romney in South Carolina is so low that the campaign is having to bus out of state Mormon students in to attend his rallies.

    BuzzFeed reported, “But this wasn’t a grassroots youth movement rooted at the University of South Carolina. No, many of the students cheering on the candidate told BuzzFeed they were actually BYU students and young Mormons from D.C. and Virginia who traveled to the Palmetto State to give their co-religionist’s presidential effort a much-needed jolt of energy.” Romney’s campaign tried to deny that they bused the students in, but The Boston Globe also reported that the campaign bused in 70 students from a tiny Mormon college in Virginia to try to pump some life into the campaign.

    But his name is not on the ballot. However, if Cain wins, Colbert wins by proxy.

    Crystal Sage 3:03 must be watching Faux News in that there is only 1% of the votes in. Yea -- Gingrich has the wind at his back but there is no way it can be called yet.

    Chuck Todd has got all snotty and whiney about Colbert. Todd's saying Colbert is making a mockery of the system and marginalizing the Republican party. Todd's all snotty cause Colbert mocks media.

    Time to rip Asshole Chuck Fuck Todd from MSNBC/NBC as he's being paid and it's not only by MSNBC/NBC. He hasn't done his job for ages. He's a poll reader. He's done nothing to inform and educate people. He's a moron.

    Have you all read Andrew Sullivan's piece over at the Daily Dish? He quotes our own Jesse and makes an excellent point about Palin's inability to run for public office due to Joe McGinniss's book; not only what he wrote, but also what he didn't.

    I read the other day that Newt stated he would put/use Sarah Palin in his own administration if he makes it to the White House.

    That alone should keep folks from voting for him.

    IMHO

    I vote Art Project. Herman Cane, like Sarah Palin before him, was just making it up as he went along.

    Did Sarah yet to "Find them, and get back to ya" to Charlie Gibson?

    You know, it just gives Herb an idea that he is relevant and useful. I'd resent it just as much if Sarah weren't so paranoid as to fall for this to feed her ego.

    Colbert was roasting him and Cain was a good sport over it. Colbert probably paid him well for it, and admit it-- no matter who wins the primaries, they can screw themselves and their mistresses: Herman Cain was the real winner because he got to do a show with Stephen Colbert!

    Lynne Nailed it! Herman is just having some fun. Loves the attention. I suspect we'll see him in the next Kings of Comedy.
