Keith Olbermann gave “Worst Person” honors to several news organizations Tuesday and Wednesday for trying to “suck up” Gov. Sanford in an attempt to get an interview. Stephen Colbert was offended that his “suck up” email to the governor didn’t warrant a “Worst Person” award.

“How dare you let me get away with this because I’m a native South Carolinian and an old school gentleman? I am no gentleman. I wasn’t just offering a reporting stroke job. In my next e-mail I offered him a literal stroke job,” said Colbert.
