"I Can't Name Them All"Lynn Westmoreland of Georgia has never introduced any legislation ever since he became a congressman.
So what does he do? He goes for the easy red meat-baiting legislation by co-sponsoring a bill to display the Ten Commandments in the House of Representatives and the Senate.
Except, he doesn't even know what the Ten Commandments are.
Part of video clip via Crooks and Liars:
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 nothinger. I don't know who that is, but they're a Democrat.
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.
I'm not sure when he's up for re-election but it'll be interesting to see how this pandering fiasco affects his chances in the 8th district of Georgia. Way to go, Congressman Westmoreland. Keep up the good work!
