Colbert to Tancredo: ‘Diamonds Are Just Jesus’s Tears’

Referencing a recent poll that found 68% of Republicans don’t believe in evolution, Stephen Colbert challenged GOP presidential candidates, including Congressman Tom Tancredo, to take the belief one step further:

“Clearly the brave anti-evolution stances of Tom Tancredo, Sam Brownback, and Mike Huckabee have got science on the run. 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.
