Stephen Colbert is really excited about the current crop of ten Republican presidential hopefuls. On yesterday's Colbert Report, he likened the field (which includes Mitt Romney, Michele Bachmann, Newt Gingrich, Herman Cain, and Tim Pawlenty) to a delicious buffet filled with white bread, white rice, mayonaise, boiled potatoes, mashed potatoes... and nuts!

What's for dessert at the all-you-can-eat buffet of politicos? Sweet, sweet Herman (candy) Cain!

Watch Colbert eat his way through the crop of Republicans running for the country's highest office, after the jump.
