Colbert said that it wasn't fair for Crist to cool himself with a fan if Scott wasn't allowed to cool himself sitting on a rock (dude looks like a human lizard, being the joke there).

A Florida gubernatorial debate got weird when Governor Rick Scott refused to take the stage to debate his democratic opponent Charlie Crist because Crist had a miniature fan under his podium (story). It turns out that Scott was referencing a little-known debate bylaw stating that all candidates’ genitals must be equally sweaty during the event.

Colbert said that it wasn’t fair for Crist to cool himself with a fan if Scott wasn’t allowed to cool himself sitting on a rock (dude looks like a human lizard, being the joke there).

Watch Colbert recount this bizarre (and yet since it happened in Florida, completely expected) attempt at the democratic process.
