WASHINGTON (AP) – After his triumph in Iowa and third-place finish in New Hampshire, Mike Huckabee showed up Wednesday night for another Colbert bump.

An earlier bump pushed Huckabee to the front of the Republican presidential pack, the candidate assured TV comic Stephen Colbert.

"The only reason I'm the front-runner now is because of the Colbert bump," a mostly straight-faced Huckabee told the host of "The Colbert Report" on Comedy Central. "If it were not for that I would not be sitting in this chair, I would be probably somewhere serving hamburgers at a drive-in restaurant."

Colbert, in a split-screen interview, then ran Huckabee through a series of questions about the candidate's policies.

Example: Would he chase Osama bin Laden into hell, as rival candidate John McCain said Wednesday he would do?

"And beyond," Huckabee said. "I will charge hell with a water pistol if necessary."

Colbert, who abandoned his own 2008 presidential bid after the South Carolina Democratic Party voted to keep him off its primary ballot, said he was still willing to be Huckabee's running mate, as
Huckabee apparently had promised earlier. Colbert said his "foreign policy" experience — trips to Sandals resorts in Jamaica, the Bahamas — would help answer Huckabee critics that the
former Arkansas governor lacked such.

Just in case, though, Colbert then gave Huckabee a chance to take back his running mate promise publicly.

"Stephen, please, be my running mate," Huckabee said.

"Yes, a thousand times yes," was Colbert's answer.

I love him and Jon Stewart both. And I wish this damn writers strike would just end already so that we could get back to their shows!! Steven Colbert didn't do too badly his first night without writers, but the Daily Show was just sad...

Colbert doesn't even need the writers. He's hilarious.

Unfortunately I only got to watch about 10 minutes of the Colbert Report that night because I had a social engagement to attend (read: beer and chicken wings with friends). But he appeared to be doing well, and my roommate who watched it said he did a good job.

Jon Stewart, on the other hand...that was PAINFUL!

ColberT's recent bits on Hucklebee have been hilarious. The way he cuts into a flat-world, sun revolves around the earth, woman deflating candidate, have been fantastic.

Too bad the Bible thumping idiot doesn't catch the drift.

Well put, goodco. I hate that Huckabee is using Colbert to get votes. He's really milking Chuck Norris' approval for him too, and the sad thing is people are falling for it.

Chuck Norris is the only man to milk cows with his stare.
