August 18, 2009 - Robert Wright

In this episode, shocking news from the world of comic books: one of them hasn't been made into a movie. Then, a surprise twist in the German parliamentary election -- although, generally, I'm not a fan of German surprises. And my guest, Robert Wright, says religion has evolved over time, or in the case of Scientology, through market research. Congratulations, Brett Favre on setting the NFL record for incomplete retirements. This is The Colbert Report.
