"The 10 Commandments Is Not a Bad Thing"

Posted By on Sat, Jun 17, 2006 at 2:10 PM

Or so says Rep. Lynn Westmoreland, who has co-sponsored a bill to display the 10 commandments in the House and Senate. Here he is on Colbert talking about it. Unsuprisingly for a man with such a limited grasp of grammar, Westmoreland is unable to name the 10 commandments. But still, he's sure they is not a bad thing!

Seriously, if you were a lawmaker, and you were asking that a sign be posted in a public building, don't you think you should have some idea what that sign said? If there really are only 10 commandments in the set, how hard is it to remember them? And if you can't remember 10 simple laws, should you really be elected to the post of lawmaker? Luckily for us, Rep. Westmoreland is not much of a lawmaker ... in fact, this is the very first bill he's ever sponsored. So cute! He's like a newborn babe taking his first steps! And Colbert is there to help him fall on his face.
