Can You Name the Ten Commandments?

Stephen Colbert, thank you again for making this is a great Friday. From Crooks and Liars:
Colbert was priceless last night. His guest was Republican Congressman Lynn Westmoreland and I guess he never heard of The Colbert Report before. He will now.

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. emailer Ruth asks: Does this guy deserve a $3,300 pay raise?

The guy co-sponsors a bill about the Ten Commandments and doesn't even know them. Priceless.

Do you seriously think he has never read them or has no knowledge of them? Or think that Colbert was actually interested in listening to him recite them?

I am sure that the Senator has read, has heard them recited and had to memorize them, his inability to remember the Ten Comandments is a obvious proof of his lack of moral fiber and brain power.

Eh, whatcha gonna do.... "Brain power" is a diminishing quality these days. Hell, I've heard that some people don't even know how to spell "commandments"...

That's my point...He couldn't recite the Ten Commandments on the spot? Big deal.
