Colbert Show: 10 Commandments Bill Sponsor Knows Only Three
This is just insanely troubling: Getting beyond the fact that the GOP congressman interviewed by Stephen Colbert could name only three of the 10 commandments he wants to see enshrined in public schools and courtrooms…the guy, Rep. Lynn Westmoreland, is a completely empty suit. He didn’t utter an intelligent syllable the entire interview. And he’s in Congress.
Wait, before you go…
Crooks and Liars:
Colbert was priceless last night. His guest was Republican Congressman Lynn Westmoreland and I guess he never heard of The Colbert Report before. He will now.
Colbert: What are the Ten Commandments?
Westmoreland: You mean all of them?–Um… Don’t murder. Don’t lie. Don’t steal Um… I can’t name them all.
