YOSEMITE SAM.

NOW FOLKS SPEAKING OF OUR

FUTURE PRESIDENT IT IS DAY

SIX OF WHAT MANY INSIDE THIS

DESK ARE CALLING PARRY WITH

AN A GATE.

FOR THOSE OF YOU JUST

EMERGING FROM A COMA IN YOUR

TIME MACHINE LAST WEEK

COLBERT SUPERPAC PRODUCED A

MULTI100 DOLLAR AD CAMPAIGN

URGING IOWANANS' AMES STRAW

POLL TO WRITE IN RICK PARRY

WITH AN A, THAT IS A FOR

PAAAARRY.

AND ON SATURDAY AT THE STRAW

POLL WHEN ALL THE FRIED PUT

HER BEEN EATEN AND ALL THE

VOTES HAD BEEN COUNTED, RICK

PARRY CAME IN NUMBER ONE,

TWO, THREE, FOUR, FIVE,

SIXTH PLACE--

(LAUGHTER)

>> WITH 718 VOTES.

THE ONLY WRITE-IN CANDIDATE

TO RANK IN THE TOP TEN.

WE MAY HAVE DID IT.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

NOW FOLKS, WE CAN'T BE SURE

YET.

WE CAN'T BE SURE YET HOW

MANY OF THOSE VOTES WERE

SPELLED WITH AN "A" BECAUSE

THE IOWA GOP REFUSES TO

RELEASE THE RESULTS FOR

PUBLIC SCRUTINY.

>> BOO!

>> Stephen: I AGREE.

(LAUGHTER)

AND WE HAVE VISUAL PROOF

THAT AT LEAST SOME PEOPLE

VOTED FOR PARRY WITH AN A

BECAUSE AN ACTUAL IOWA STRAW

POLL VOTER TWEETED A CELL

PHONE PHOTO OF HIS BALLOT

WHERE HE WROTE IN RICK PARRY

WITH AN "A"

YES.

NOW I ASSUME THE OTHER 717

PARRY VOTERS DID NOT TWEET

THEIR BALLOT PHOTOS BECAUSE

THEIR PHONES WERE DEEP FRIED

AND EATEN.

WANT YOU TO KNOW ON MONDAY,
