'The Colbert Report'On 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights., 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central) host Stephen Colbert announced that he's in agreement with "pundit, and part-time weather balloon, Rush Limbaugh" on at least one issue.

Discussing the heat index, which is included in most weather forecasts in the US nowadays, Colbert said he and Limbaugh are "not buying the heat-steria."

He then played a clip from Limbaugh's radio show in which the pundit made the heat index seem rather sinister.

Limbaugh said it's "manufactured by the government" to tell us what the temperature feels like (when humidity and other elements are factored-in to the actual air temperature).

Colbert agreed: "The heat index is just more Big Government numbers telling you how hot to feel." To gales of laughter from the audience, he continued: "Just like their 'time index' tells you how sleepy to feel."

Colbert then revealed that he's even more skeptical than Limbaugh in other matters. "He doesn't believe in global warming. I don't believe in warming! I say the science just isn't in on thermo-dynamics."
