Sure as I’m sittin’ here, I witnessed Congressman Lynn Westmoreland (R-Dumbass) appear on last night’s The Colbert Report and demonstrate exactly why Georgia is at the bottom of the education scale in America, if not the whole world.
Colbert had his “Know your congressional district” series on with Westmoreland as his subject.
Towards the end, Colbert asked Westmoreland if it was true he co-sponsored a bill that would require the Ten Commandments be posted in the House of Representatives and in the Senate, to which Westmoreland said “Yes.”
Colbert then asked him “Well, is there any other building other than a public building that should post the Ten Commandments?”
To which Westmoreland said “No.”
THEN…Colbert asked Westmoreland “What are the Ten Commandments? Name them.”
Westmoreland’s face went blank for a moment, and then he started stumbling-out an answer in which he named LESS THAN FIVE COMMANDMENTS!!!!
Really now, for such a simple set of instructions that is (according to people like Westmoreland) the bedrock of our country, one would think that Westmoreland would have them as committed to memory as he thinks everyone else in America should have them committed to memory.
Perhaps someone needs to develop the Ten Commandments Toilet Roll…because, you can get some good reading done while you’re visiting the porcelain god.
If you want to catch this on the repeat, tune into Comedy Central (The Comedy Channel) at 10:30 AM on Thursday (June 15) and then at 8:30 PM Thursday night.
Damn…that’s funnier than Larry, The Cable Guy. Lynn has a GREAT future as a comedian.
