Stephen Colbert expressed excitement Monday evening over the latest notable support for Newt Gingrich ahead of the Florida GOP primary.

The Comedy Central host mentioned how Herman Cain, former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, and imprisoned former California congressman Duke Cunningham had all fallen in-line behind the former House speaker.

Colbert particularly took interest in Palin’s “Annoy a liberal, vote Newt” comment.

“Yeah, annoy a liberal,” Colbert said. “Gingrich is like a flaming bag of poop you could vote for.
