Stephen Colbert Goes After The Sierra Club's Carl Pope
We here at the Razz love it when America’s most respected right-wing news anchor brings us the truthiness on what’s happening in the world of treehuggers. Of course, we’re talking about Stephen Colbert — who last time gave us a rundown of summer movies “destroying America” — and today goes after the Sierra Club and their executive director, Carl Pope.
You see, Colbert is concerned that organizations like the Sierra Club are forcing Americans to make sacrifices — something he sees as a direct attack on his love for drying his grapes with a hair dryer. And yes, that’s a metaphor.
In this hilarious interview, Carl Pope cautiously (and with good humor) navigates the questions put to him — including how he traveled over 2,500 miles from San Franciso to Washington, D.C. for the taping. “Did you travel on the back of a spotted owl?,” Stephen quips.
Enjoy the fun below — including the beautifully phrased response to “Is President Bush a ‘green’ president or the ‘greenest’ president?”
