Colbert Steps Out of Character

Comedian Stephen Colbert is dropping his right-wing pundit act to help his sister's congressional campaign in South Carolina, telling CNN he's happy to make an exception for her.

Said Colbert: "She's my sister, and I'm willing to, you know, break the jewel of my own creation to try to do something for her. I'm not worried what it would do to me or my show to try to help her as myself, not as my character, and to help her as myself."
