( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ) STEPHEN, STEPHEN, STEPHEN!

STEPHEN, STEPHEN, STEPHEN!

STEPHEN, STEPHEN, STEPHEN!

>> Stephen: THANK YOU,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN.

CHORS PLAUS.

>> Stephen: THANK YOU SO MUCH.

WELCOME TO THE REPORT.

THANK YOU FOR JOINING US.

FOLKS, I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU, I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU,

FOLKS, BUT I FOR ONE-- (CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

>> Stephen: I AM REALLY-- REELING FROM THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS FIRST MAY-TOBER SURPRISE.

YESTERDAY'S SHOCKING ANNOUNCEMENT.

>> TODAY I'M SUSPENDING THE CAMPAIGN.

>> Stephen: NEWT GINGRICH HAS LEFT THE RACE!

I HAVE NOT BEEN THIS CAUGHT OFF GUARD SINCE HE ENTERED THE RACE.

(LAUGHTER)

>> Stephen: NOW NEWT PLEDGED TO ENDORSE MITT ROMNEY AT A LATER DATE.

BUT MITT'S CAMPAIGN MIGHT THINK NEWT SAID ENOUGH ALREADY.

>> ROMNEY IS A GUY WHO WILL MANAGE THE DECAY.

HE'S NOT THE GUY WHO IS GOING TO CHANGE WASHINGTON.

>> GOVERNOR ROMNEY IS EXTRAORDINARILY INSENSITIVE TO RELIGIOUS FREEDOM IN AMERICA.

>> IF GOVERNOR ROMNEY WOULD LIKE TO GIVE BACK ALL THE MONEY HE HAS EARNED FROM

BANKRUPTING COMPANIES AND LAYING OFF EMPLOYEES OVER HIS YEARS AT BAIN, THAT I

WOULD BE GLAD TO THEN LISTEN HIM.

>> ARE YOU CALLING AROMNEY A LIAR?

>> YES.

(LAUGHTER)

>> Stephen: NOW OBVIOUSLY THIS HEALING IS GOING TO BE A PROCESS.

BABY STEPS.

BUT MITT HAS ALREADY PROVEN HIMSELF A LEADER BY RELEASING THIS GRACIOUS STATEMENT ABOUT THE FORMER SPEAKER.

>> ANN AND I ARE PROUD TO CALL NEWT AND CALISTA FRIENDS.

WE LOOK FORWARD TO WORKING WITH THEM IN THE MONTHS AND YEARS AHEAD.

THAT FROM MITT ROMNEY.

POLITICS IS WEIRD.

AND NOW I KNOW LAST SEASON'S SEASON'S-- ATTACHMENT TO ANYTHING LIKE REALITY.

>> Stephen: AN IS HELP KNOWS ABOUT LOOSE ATTACHMENT TO ANYTHING LIKE REALITY.

HE WORKED WITH FOX NEWS.

BUT MITT AND NEWT KNOW THAT IN POLITICS THESE GUYS RIB,

THEY TEASE, THEY MAKE ROBO CALLS SAYING THE OTHER GUY DENIED KOSHER MEALS TO HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS.

BUT IT'S ALL IN GOOD FUN.

THEY'LL PULL IT TOGETHER.

AND NO ONE EXPLAINED THAT BETTER THAN REPUBLICAN STRATEGIST DEE DEE BENKIE.

>> THINK ABOUT IT THIS WAYS,

NEIL, IT'S A SPORTS ANALOGY,

SAY THE REPUBLICANS ARE NOTRE DAME AND THE DEMOCRATS USC.

BIG RIVALRY.

AND NOTRE DAME HAS TO PICK A TEAM CAPTAIN, SO YOU'VE GOT THE FIJI, THE PHI DE WILL

D-- DELTS AND ANOTHER FRATERNITY.

THE OTHER ARE TEAM CAPTAIN THE OTHER TWO ARE MAD, THEY ARE NOT IN A GOOD MOOD FOR

WEEKS BUT THE TIME THIS GAME COMES ALONG, SATURDAY,

FORGET IT.

THE FIGHTING IRISH THEY'RE NOT GOING TO LET TROJAN MAN WIN NO WAY, NO HOW.

PLUS THE OTHER FRATERNITY SAY THEY ARE GOING TO RALLY AROUND THEIR GUY BECAUSE NOW

THEY ARE PART OF THE TEAM SO THAT'S TWO THINGS.

EVERYONE IS PART OF THE TEAM AND THEY HATE THE OTHER TEAM.

>> Stephen: THERE IT.

AS CLEAR AS A FOOTBALL.

(LAUGHTER)

>> Stephen: BUT I UNDERSTAND THAT SOME YOU OUT THERE MAY NOT BE SPORTS FANS THE WAY

ME AND DEE DEE ARE.

SO LET ME PUT THIS ANOTHER WAY.

IT'S LIKE A STAR WARS ANALOGY.

SAY THE REPUBLICANS ARE THE REBEL ALLIANCE AND THE DEMOCRATS ARE THE DEATHSTAR.

AND ADMIRAL AKBAR HAS TO DECIDE WHO IS GOING TO FIGHT DARTH VADER.

YOU GOT LUKE SKYWALKER, HANS SOLO AND ANOTHER FRATERNITY.

LET'S SAY THE ROM YOU LUS.

THE GUYS WHO DON'T FLY WITH RED FIVE ARE GOING TO BE PISSED FOR A WHILE, THEY

WILL ALSO BE MAD, THEY WILL WANT TO FLY THROUGH THE STAR GATE ON BATTLE STAR GALACTICA AND TAKE A

VACATION IN CLOUD CITY BUT BY THE TIME THE GAME TIME COMES ALONG THE FIGHTERS

FORGET T THEY DON'T CARE WHO SENDS PROT TON TORPEDO DOWN THE THERMAL EXHAUST PORT AS

LONG AS THEY SAVE YAFAN FOUR,

THEY WANT TO BLOW UP THE DEATHSTAR AND THEY HATE THE DARK SIDE.

OR-- (CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

>> Stephen: THAT WORKS.

OR, OF COURSE, THERE'S ALWAYS THE POLITICAL ANALOGY,

REPUBLICANS WHO DIDN'T SUPPORT MITT ROMNEY WILL COME TOGETHER BECAUSE THEY

WANT TO BEAT BARACK OBAMA.

TOO COMPLICATED.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

>> Stephen: FOLKS, AS A PLAYER IN THE POWERFUL AND COMPLETELY TRANSPARENT WORLD

OF SUPER PACS, I PRIDE MYSELF ON EXERCISING THE GREATEST POSSIBLE INFLUENCE,

THE DETAILS OF BY ARE NONE OF YOUR GODDAMN BUSINESS.

BUT RECENTLY A MYSTERIOUS RIVAL HAS APPEARED IN FLORIDA TO CHALLENGE MY DOMINANCE IN THE WORLD OF

SUPERSECRET SUPER PACKING.

SO TONIGHT I GO IN SEARCH OF THEY WERE TENDER, JIM.

>> FOR YEARS THERE HAS BEEN ONE UNDISPUTED KING OF DEMOCRACY.

>> MY NAME IS STEPHEN COLBERT.

AND I AM AN AMERICAN CITIZEN.

>> I ACCEPT THE-- TO BE SOUTH CAROLINA'S FAVORITE SON.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

>> STEPHEN COLBERT IS HAVING A RALLY TODAY.

>> WHOOO!

I AM SUPER PAC!

>> BUT NOW A CHALLENGER THREATENED MY THRONE.

WHO IS HE?

THERE'S ONE GUY THAT LITERALLY STARTED ONE IN FOUR OF THE SUPER PACS THAT

HAVE BEEN FORMED SINCE THE CITIZENS UNITED RULING.

>> 64 SEEMS LIKE AN EXTRAORDINARY NUMBER OF SUPER PACS TO ME.

BECAUSE I HAVE 0.

>> HE'S FORMED 400 POLITICAL ACTION COMMITTEES ON THE STATE LEVEL.

>> HE'S RUN FOR SEVERAL OFFICES.

>> HE'S RAISED 18 MILLION DOLLARS.

>> HE'S A BILLIONAIRE AN ECONOMIST.

>> HE WAS RUNNING FOR THREE OFFICES AT THE SAME TIME.

>> HE'S CURRENTLY ON THE BALLOT FOR U.S. SENATOR,

U.S. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.

>> HE HAS RUN FOR PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.

>> HE HAS RUN FOR JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING.

>> AND HIS NAME IS-- WHAT IS HIS NAME.

>> I DON'T KNOW IT IS JOSU,

IF IT IS HOSU.

>> HOSU OR ALSO KNOWN AS JOSHUA.

>> I HAVE ALWAYS CALLED HIM MR. LA ROSE.

>> Stephen: WELL, AYLA ROSE BY ANY OTHER NAME SPELLS LIKE A MYSTERY.

JOIN ME TONIGHT AS I GO IN SEARCH OF THE MAN WHO WOULD RIDE MY PAC TAILS.

>> IT'S A MYSTERY.

HE'S GOT A LOT OF SUPER PACS.

BUT WE DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT HIM.

WHO IS THIS GUY?

TO SOLVE THE MYSTERY OF THE MISSING MONEY MAN.

>> I HOPPED ON BOARD "THE COLBERT REPORT" SEAPLANE.

AND FLEW TO DUVAL COUNTY,

FLORIDA, WHERE MR. LA ROSE RAN FOR OFFICE.

TO MEET THE SUPERVISOR OF ELECTIONS AND FIND OUT JUST WHO THIS LA ROSE REALLY IS.

>> I HAVE NEVER MET HIM OR SEEN HIM.

>> OAKEY DOKE.

>> MY SEARCH THEN TOOK ME TO THE COUNTY LA ROSE LIVES IN WHERE I MET WITH FORMER

RIVAL FOR THE STATE SENATE AND CURRENT CLUTTER PHOBE BILL RAMOS WHO REMEMBERS LA

ROSE FROM THEIR DRAMATIC CLASHES IN THE PRIMARY DEBATE.

>> WHEN THE FIRST DEBATE OCCURRED, HE WASN'T THERE.

AND THE SECOND ONE, HE WASN'T THERE.

AND UNFORTUNATELY, I NEVER GOT A CHANCE TO MEET HIM.

>> Stephen: A PATTERN WAS EMERGING.

A PATTERN WITH NO SHAPE OR FORM.

SO I TURNED TO INVESTIGATIVE REPORTER FOR PROPUBLICA, KIM BARKER.

WAIT A SECOND, GO BACK, I GOT SOMETHING.

>> OH YOU CAN'T TELL BY THE WAY I WEAR MY-- I'M PRO PUBLICA WE'LL FIND OUT WHO

HE IS,-- OKAY, EXCUSE MA.

BARKER HAS BEEN ON THE LA ROSE STORY SINCE 2009.

SO SHE KNOWS EVERYBODY WHO HAS MET OR SPOKEN TO MR. LA ROSE.

>> I DON'T KNOW ANYBODY WHO HAS MET OR SPOKE TO MR. LA ROSE.

>> KIM, SERIOUSLY, JUST ANYTHING, I NEED SOMETHING,

GIVE ME SOMETHING.

>> I BELIEVE THAT THERE IS ONE FORT LAUDERDALE SUN SENTINEL REPORTER WHOSE'S

MET MR. LA ROSE.

>> THE GAME WAS AFOOT.

REPORTER JOHN BERNSTEIN WAS THE MISSING LINK IN THE LA ROSE MYSTERY.

>> I HAVE SEEN MR. LA ROSE.

>> FINALLY, PHYSICAL PROOF THAT LA ROSE EXISTS.

>> AND, NO, I DO NOT HAVE ANY, ANY PHYSICAL PROOF-- I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING.

>> Stephen: SKIP THAT.

>> HIS OFFICE IS IN THE EAST BROWARD BUILDING.

>> Stephen: A BREAKTHROUGH.

>> I BELIEVE IT'S ON THE 17th FLOOR.

>> Stephen: A BREAKTHROUGH?

I SCOURED THE 17th FLOOR.

BUT THE PACMAN WAS NOWHERE TO BE FOUND.

SO OUTSIDE THE BUILDING I CORNERED ONE OF LA ROSE'S FELLOW TENANTS.

>> I DON'T KNOW WHO JOSE LA ROSE IS BUT I KNOW A LOT OF JOSE, I HAVE A LOT OF

FRIENDS NAMED JOSE BUT THEY ALL LIVE IN MIAMI.

I'M SURE THERE ARE PLENTY IN FORT LAUDERDALE.

I JUST DON'T HAVE ANY JOSE FRIENDS IN LAUNDER DALE, BUT IN MIAMI.

>> Stephen: GOT IT.

>> SORRY.

>> Stephen: OKAY, I'M GOING TO LEAVE.

AS NIGHT FELL, SO DID MY SPIRITS.

THE TRAIL HAD GONE COLD.

AND THEN IT GOT HOT.

BECAUSE IT OCCURRED TO ME HOW DO YOU FIND A MAN AS ELUSIVE AS BIG FOOT AM BY CALLING IN THE PROS AT

ANIMAL PLANET, FINDING BIG FOOT.

SPARE NOTHING EXPENSE BECAUSE THEY DID IT FOR FREE.

MATT, CLIFF, BOBO AND RENEE.

JOURNEYED INTO DEEPEST FLORIDA IN SEARCH OF LA ROSE.

>> I'M UP HIGH IN A TREE.

I'VE GOT THE PARABOLIC MICROPHONE, THERMAL IMAGER,

HINE THE QHOK POINT, THOSE GUYS ARE GOING IT TO TRY TO FLUSH LA ROSE TOWARDS ME,

HOPEFULLY I CAN GET A HIT ON THE THERM.

>> ALL RIGHT, RENEE,

OPERATION GIANT LA ROSE FLY IS NOW GOING TO COMMENCE.

>> ON BEHALF OF THE VIACOM NETWORK AND ALL THE SUBSIDIARIES, I WOULD LIKE

TO APOLOGISE TO THE PEOPLE OF FLORIDA AND MY VIEWERS BECAUSE I HAVE BEEN INFORMED

IT IS AGAINST NETWORK POLICY TO ATTEMPT TO FLUSH BLACK PEOPLE OUT OF THE WOODS USING TORCHES.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE) ALL RIGHT, WHAT BEGAN AS A RIVALLY HAS GROWN INTO RESPECT.

AND I INVITE TO YOU COME ON MY SHOW TO RECEIVE THE COLBERT BUMP.

OR PERHAPS THIS TIME IT SHALL BE I WHO RECEIVES THE JOSU JUMP.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

>> Stephen: THANKS VERY MUCH.

WELCOME BACK, EVERYBODY.
