Hypocritical Morality?

Stephen Colbert
Comedy Central host, Stephen Colbert, recently did what I thought was a well-deserved number on a politician.

Rep. Lynn Westmoreland, (R-Ga) appeared on his show and Colbert asked him about a bill he sponsored in Congress to require the Ten Commandments to be displayed in the U.S. Capitol. Colbert’s question: “What are the Ten Commandments?”

Flustered, the Congressman replied “All of them? You want me to name them all?” He struggled to name three.

Honestly, I’m not sure I could accurately get them all right and in order if I was put in a similar spot. But then again, I’m not sponsoring such legislation.

    Yes, funny. The polital comedians have had their sights set squarely on the conservatives for a number of years now. The conservatives provide them with plenty of material to work from.

    It is getting old, however.

    I hope the comedians are as generous with the more liberal-leaning folks, those they agree with more. I have a feeling we’ll be seeing more of that stripe in office soon.
