The Daily Show held climate deniers (the Republican Party, in other words) up to ridicule Thursday night and those skewered included Arkansas Sen. John Boozman, whose appearance included a citation of his optometrist cred before his view of the issue. Which led to a little climate change eye exam by Jon Stewart.
Stewart notes that the EPA administrators for the last four Republican presidents all had testified in support of earth warming and man’s contribution to it. You can also hear them testify in support of EPA’s power to take steps in response, as President Obama has directed.
Boozman noted that he’d studied zoology in college.
“If this was a hearing about a zebra with an astigmatism, I”m your guy,” Stewart said, mimicking Boozman.
