Colbert Tackles Rand Paul’s Rogue Ophthalmology Outfit (VIDEO)

Last night Stephen Colbert took a look at Kentucky Republican Senate candidate Rand Paul’s dissident ophthalmology re-certification group, which Paul created after a dispute with the national board.

Colbert established his own “USA Board of Ophthalmologist Freedom” to compete with the major existing certifying board, the American Board of Ophthalmology, and the one based at Paul’s Kentucky home, the National Board of Ophthalmology. (See TPMmuckraker’s coverage of Paul’s board here.)Colbert’s board is “headquartered inside my left inside pocket,” he said, before going on to perform an exam on an intern.
