Stephen Colbert seems to take this idiot by surprise. I wonder if he even knew what the show was about before agreeing to appear? At any rate, it’s kind of sad. The guest is Don McLeroy, former chairman of the Texas Board of Education, which has a huge influence on what winds up in school textbooks far beyond the borders of the Lone Star State. The guys is a Creationist, so you can guess how this goes.
Here are the best lines:
Don McLeroy: “That’s not true.”
Colbert: “No, I have personally chosen that it is true.”
Near the end:
Colbert: “I have always been a fan of reality by majority vote.”
