This is the Steiner-Lehmus Theorem. See, e.g., http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steiner–Lehmus_theorem.

EDIT: A large number of proofs, and a much larger number of references to proofs in the literature, can be found at http://www.mathematik.uni-bielefeld.de/~sillke/PUZZLES/steiner-lehmus.

MORE EDIT: There are even proofs on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9jViToZi3Kg and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FSfMS1z3aic
