Colbert is out

The South Carolina Democratic Party has decided that Colbert is not a serious candidate and therefore is not welcome on the ballot for the primaries.

The Democrats had to decide whether they considered Colbert to be a bona fide Democrat who is nationally viable and has spent time campaigning in the state.

A South Carolina-based lawyer who was working to get Colbert’s name on the Democratic ballot could not immediately be reached for comment, nor could members of the executive council that made the decision.

Colbert could still run as an independent in the general election, though he’d have to collect 10,000 signatures to get on the ballot, said Chris Whitmire, a spokesman for the State Election Commission.
I highly doubt he will run as an independent. I think he will realize the joke is over and it's time to go back to being a faux O'Reilly.
