Colbert on Ralph Reed’s Golden Rule: ‘Screw Unto Others’

Colbert

The “Colbert Report” host rips Ralph Reed, who recently lost the Georgia Lt. Gov. race. When a wave of mock sympathy ran through the audience over Reed’s demise, Colbert said, “Send [Reed] your strength. He’s like Tinkerbell.”

Colbert went on to say that the disgraced Reed is only the gateway to a wider world of moral hypocrisy, and lampooned other politicians who have managed to find themselves mired in scandal despite perfect ratings from Reed’s Christian Coalition. And Colbert didn’t have time to name all the candidates “fighting for our Christian values,” but a sign on-screen assured us “The indictments probably will.”

I am awed with the profundity of your wisdom. I have been enlightened at the core of my psyche by your words. Are you of the bloodline of Iechie, perhaps Confucius? I will now go prepare a vestry illuminated with a thousand cadles.
The complexity of the cosmos has at last been clearly defined.

There are some things we have to understand; religion does apply to them, only to the masses. This is why we are finding the long list of money launders, liars and cheaters. This is why the word “shit” could flow so easily from Bush’s mouth.

Religion controls, as it seems every aspect of our being. And, if you can control religion, you certainly have a stronghold on all who believe. Then again, all we have to believe with is our senses, the tools we use to perceive the world; our sight, our touch, our memory. If they fail us, then nothing can be trusted. And even if we do not believe, then still we cannot travel in any other way than the road our senses show us; and we must walk that road to the end.

Therefore, when we see shit, we must deviate from it. When we smell shit, we should know before long a deviation is necessary. If we hear someone shitting, we have to alter our path; we must deviate. If we don’t have the senses of the fore mentioned three, and we have to touch shit, the consistency should tell us to deviate. Lastly, if we are unfortunate to have to taste shit, memory should certainly tell us to deviate.

Considering all of the “shit” we got from the Nixon and Reagan administrations, why aren’t we using our senses with this one?

Has anyone noticed how “choirboyish” and “Cute” Ralph Reed use to appear when he was on the cover of “Time” and how damn butt ugly he is now?  Looks like he fell out of the ugly tree and hit every limb on the way down.
