“There is no bigger night in politics than the day after the run-off election following the Republican primary in a special election for South Carolina’s first district!” declared Stephen Colbert on the Colbert Report.

“Originally I wasn’t going to talk about this on my nightly broadcast,” he continued, referring to his sister, Elizabeth Colbert Busch’s candidacy in the special election against former Gov. Mark Sanford. “But then I watched today’s Coffee Joe Morning and the Funky Bunch.”

Oh, so that’s how it’s going to be, Stephen?

Colbert went on to dub yesterday’s Morning Joe segment an “infomercial” on Sanford. Watch the full segment below.

“Oh, oh it is on! Morning Joe versus the Colbert Report. Did I want this fight?! No!” he declared on Wednesday.

It’s tough times like these that make us long for the simpler times of presidential elections, when Stephen joined us in Charleston to talk about Herman Cain. Watch below!
