"I want you to vote for Herman Cain," Stephen Colbert said at a giant rally yesterday, "because Herman Cain is me." The estimated 3,300 people assembled probably made it the largest political event in South Carolina all season, complete with marching bands and Colbert singing along to "This Little Light of Mine." Doing all he can to revive the candidacy of Herman "9-9-9" Cain (in light of his own failed bid to get on the S.C. ballot), Colbert also tweeted this Election Day rhyme today: "Vote Cain this Saturdain."
