Weird Health Wednesdays: Stephen Colbert and the EPA, Elizabeth Edwards, Carl Pope
Not so much with the *weird* today because these Colbert Report videos are too funny not to share.
You’ve got to watch this one on the value of human life and the EPA’s decision to delay regulation of greenhouse gases. Much hilarity and derision of Bush ensues.

And then I remembered Elizabeth Edwards appeared on The Colbert Report last week, and she explained how universal healthcare is not socialized medicine and impresses Stephen Colbert with her poise and humor. Plus, the revolutionary idea (though it shouldn’t be) that insuring every American will cost less money than treating the uninsured for diseases and conditions that were preventable in the first place, had they had health insurance.
Only, in a funny way.
Finally, I had to include this episode with the Sierra Club’s Carl Pope, who proved a remarkably good sport as Colbert questioned whether Pope flew to the studios on the back of a Great Spotted Owl or in a carbon-emitting airplane. Also, a conversation with a polar bear puppet.
If you missed it, check it out.
