Colbert Explains How Rep. Larry Taylor's Bigotry Happened (VIDEO)

'The Colbert Report'When Texas state Representative Larry Taylor used the expression "Jew him down," he immediately knew he'd made a mistake. It was a split second before he followed with, "That's probably a bad term." Stephen Colbert broke down what happened on 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central).

Using a photograph, he drew on it enough to make John Madden proud in laying out the two sides of Taylor's brain. One side houses ethnic stereotypes, Colbert explained, while the other knows they are wrong. But in Taylor's brain they got separated, meaning the right side said it and the left side didn't know what was happening until it entered his left ear, "triggering the medula-I-f*****-up-a-lotta."
