Stephen Colbert Endorsing HIS Sister, Elizabeth Colbert Busch in Charleston, SC





After jokingly refusing to endorse her congressional candidacy on his show, Comedy Central host Stephen Colbert broke down and broke character at a fundraiser he hosted over the weekend to do just that, telling South Carolinians in a video published Monday that he endorses his sister, Elizabeth Colbert-Busch, mostly because shes sane, but also because Congress desperately needs more women.



During his heartfelt and personal speech, given shortly before everyone went bowling, Colbert said his character on television talks a lot about politics but hes never actually endorsed a candidate. Following a brief overview of their family history and her career, he quipped: One of the things I thought when Lulu said she was going to be running for Congress is how lucky it would be for the low country and for South Carolina to have her, not just because she is hard working, intelligent, talented and dedicated, but because shes sane!

Im from South Carolina, but were a crazy state! Colbert continued. I think we invented crazy.

1. That was so nice! We seldom get a chance

to see this man "out of character".

He is the real deal right down to his toes.
