Where the Wild Things Bone: Stephen Colbert mocks Republicans’ moral panic.
We’ve been covering the rising, almost biblical, flood of Republican censorship for a while now, but with midterm debate season in full-swing, all of the crazy is going mainstream. On his show last night Stephen Colbert took aim at the Republican candidate for governor in Michigan, Tudor Dixon, for her strange anecdotal account of “books in schools that are teaching children to have sex.”
Colbert even mocked up covers for some filthy childhood classics: Green Eggs and Butt Stuff, Where the Wild Things Bone, and If You Give a Mouse Some Nookie. Watch below for the full bit, which is well worth four minutes of your life.
