And With This, John Lithgow Announces His Candidacy

On a recent Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert did justice to a Newt Gingrich press release by giving it a dramatic reading by John Lithgow.

Can’t embed it, so head over to Gawker and watch one of the greatest performances of political satire since Colbert gave it to Bush at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.
