Last night Stephen Colbert lamented that with only two "Colbert Report" shows left, he will not be able to cover the 2016 election. Lucky for Colbert, 2016 has arrived early: Potential presidential-hopeful Jeb Bush announced via Twitter that he is officially exploring a run for president.

"Excuse me, I'm getting a little emotional," Colbert said. "I never thought I'd live to see America's first third Bush President."
