On Monday's The Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert offered "a tip of the hat to Republicans. According to a recent Gallop poll, 68% of them do not believe in evolution."

"Clearly the brave anti-evolution stances of Tom Tancredo, Sam Brownback, and Mike Huckabee have got science on the run," Colbert continued. "Now's the time to press our tack. So Congressman Tancredo, from now on you don't believe in geology either. Diamonds are just Jesus's tears. And Senator Brownback, meteorology is a myth. Weather forecasts are the devil's horoscope. And Governor Huckabee, you can stop believing in statistics. In fact, stop believing in math altogether. That just might help the Republicans feel better when the 2008 election results come in."
