Welcome to the first series of Stupid Ass Of The Week! This week's feature is kicked off with the Republican from my own district, the überstarched Rep. Lynn Westmoreland (R-GA; 8th District), who in a recent interview with Stephen Colbert could only stammer through three of the 10 Commandments. Transcript:
Colbert: You have not introduced a single piece of legislation since you entered Congress.
Westmoreland: That's correct.
Colbert: This has been called a do nothing Congress. Is it safe to say you're the do nothingest?
Westmoreland: I, I, ..Well there's one other do nothiner. I don't know who that is, but they're a Democrat.
Colbert: What can we get rid of to balance the budget?
Westmoreland: The Dept. of Education.
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.
