Stephen Colbert on the religious right’s Values Voters Summit

Stephen Colbert weighs in on the religious right’s recent Values Voters Summit.

Among other things, he has the clip I reported on of Sarah Palin claiming the President lives at 1400 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Colbert also reports that while Ted Cruz won the “straw poll,” he did a lot worse than he did the previous year.

Finally, Colbert discusses Bobby Jindal’s seeming confusion over whether evolution is real. Jindal responded that he wasn’t an evolutionary biologist, so he doesn’t know enough to know whether evolution is legit. Colbert pointed out that Jindal has an honors degree in biology from Brown. And I’m sure they never covered evolution at Brown.

    “Also Sarah Palin.” I wondered who and where these people are — the people who voted for W and then for Palin. Who are these people? Then, on the phone, my brother said that he thought Sarah Palin would be good for Washington. I don’t understand.

    Loves his money, that’s all there is to some people.

    Except that she’d be lost in Pennsylvania. ‘Cause it’s Pennsylvania Avenue, Don’cha Know.

    On the plus side, if by some catastrophic turn of events, Sarah Palin were to be elected to the presidency, it is entirely likely that she would not be able to find where the White House is.
    She might get lost on the Boston Subway and never return.

  • Well, Jindal converted to hard-line Catholicism, so we should be surprised he also adopted the religion of hard-line Republican far-right orthodoxy as well?

    He actually seems like a really bright guy, with remarkable academic achievements. But here he is, tying himself into knots trying to get people to assume he knows nothing about biology or any of that other ‘book learnin’ stuff.’

    Little known fact: Born Piyush Jindal in Baton Rouge in 1971, he gave himself the nickname Bobby—after the youngest son on The Brady Bunch—when he was 4.

  • And I’m sure they never covered evolution at Brown.

    The “rock star” of the Brown Biology department is a guy named Ken Miller, known for his testimony in the Dover Creationist trial. He’s the author of Finding Darwin’s God (A Scientist’s Search for Common Ground between God and Evolution), Only a Theory (Evolution and the Battle for America’s Soul), and four widely-used biology textbooks. He has been department chair several times. Brown is known for the high degree of student-faculty contact, but somehow Jindal never met Miller. That’s about as likely as never meeting your own roommate. (Ken and my wife were in the same class — ’70 — as undergraduates.)

    Another Republicant selling his soul and the future of the planet for money and votes. Makes one wonder how much he really loves his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren with what he is willing to leave them.
