Corn plus magic equals gasoline. That's how Stephen Colbert calculates
the way ethanol
is made. On the Colbert Report last night, the ethanol vs. biofuels
debate that we just can't help but hear about everywhere we turn was the subject of The Wørd
. The best way to experience this four-minute comedy bit is to hit the jump for the video, but if you're in a hurry, here's the short version: ethanol is the best way for us to feel like we're being green without sacrificing any of our creature comforts. Also, John McCain's crazy tax holiday
idea gets skewered as well: "Never was so little asked of so many by so few." Oh, and I so wish I would have thought of the "corn on the Saab" line. Brilliant.
