On Monday, Jan 23, Stephen Colbert of  The Colbert Report produced a segment on the "blip" of votes received by Herman Cain in the South Carolina primary.

Cain earned 45 votes in the Iowa caucus, 160 votes in the New Hampshire primary, and gathered nearly 6,000 votes in the South Carolina primary after Colbert suggested Cain be his stand-in and rallied support at the College of Charleston. Colbert was unable to solicit his own name as a write-in because of state-laws.

Colbert points to the story  "Herman Cain Gets 'A Colbert Bump' In South Carolina" on various websites including a beauty-shot of the story on Watch the episode of the Colbert Report below, or  here:
