Stephen Colbert takes on Bill O'Reilly's impeccable moon logic

All Bill O’Reilly did was ask an innocent question: How’d the moon get there? And the blogosphere erupted.

Sure, some could call O’Reilly’s query a little bit smug and didactic. But Stephen Colbert thinks the Fox News host gets too little credit. Some other things that can only be explained by God: Tivo, hot vs. cold water faucets, the cow that jumped over the moon and, of course, Bill O’Reilly.

The Bill bit starts at the two-and-a-half minute mark, after a segment on Anderson Cooper in Egypt.
