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

"Where does Bill O'Reilly come from? He's on my TV. He's off my TV. He's back. Where'd he come from?"

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.
