Yes, it is depressing that some of our congresspeople are this stupid, but this is too damn funny to pass on. Trust me. Watch Colbert (thanks to Crooks and Liars) as he interviews a Republican congressman from Georgia who has co-sponsored a bill requiring the Ten Commandments be displayed in the House and Supreme Court. There are two priceless moments here: one when he explains the importance of the Ten C's to our culture: "if we are totally without them, we may lose our sense of direction." And the second is when he hears this question: "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." Rough transcript, but watch it.
Damn funny. Damn funny that a guy co-sponsoring a bill requiring the Ten Commandments in public buildings because we need to know them doesn't actuall know them. Also funny, he says at one point that he would like to cut the department of Education. Funny because it seems like he already cut it--for himself.
