With the South Carolina Primary over, Stephen Colbert shared with his viewers Monday evening some important news.

“With a heavy heart and a spastic colon, that I’m re-suspending Herman Cain’s suspended campaign,” he said. “Also, I’m hereby officially ending my exploratory committee to run for President of the United States of South Carolina.”

Wondering what he would do next, Colbert settled on re-taking control of his super PAC from Jon Stewart.

“Jon, what is going on?” Stewart asked. “Remember when you gave me the super PAC, remember how we didn’t coordinate that you would give it back to me if I decided not to run?

“I do remember not coordinating that,” Stewart replied.

But when Colbert asked Stewart if he had the paperwork to return the super PAC to him, Stewart instead gave Colbert the middle finger and signed off.

“Stewart!” Colbert shouted in anger.
