Love Him, or Hate Him, Stephen Colbert Calls Out Tennessee “Pro-Life” Congressman

Filed under news you’d rather not have heard about, Stephen Colbert’s “Alpha Dog of the Week” is Tennessee Congressman Scott DesJarlais (R). Stephen explains why Arnold Schwarzenegger can’t hold a candle to the right, honorable, Dr. DesJarlais.


With principled pro-life warriors like these, who needs enemies? It’s like that scripture verse my momma used to quote all the time,

But if you do not what you say, no man can doubt but you sin against God: and know ye, that your sin shall overtake you. —Numbers 32:23

My momma was always right.

    Mr Colbert is an entertainer, and he pokes deep. For conservatives, perhaps uncomfortably.

    “Filed under news you’d rather not have heard about …”

    I think it’s important to hear this news. It’s important for conservatives, for their own good if nothing else, to be aware that politicians use political pro-lifers at times, and that their ends are not always in agreement, even if the stump speech and the clinic protests are delivered with the same words at the same decibel level.

    It’s also good to recall that virtue and morality are not at all congruent to the Catholic Right. Or their political heroes. All of us fail from time to time, and some people, alas, care little for their failures, except to cover them up and hide them. Awareness and information, even if uncomfortable, is essential to wisdom.

        A quite interesting Biblical statement. I’m surprised that people don’t refer to it more often. However, I found the reference to be 11:7 rather than 11:17.

          True. My mind and my fingers weren’t cooperating. Thankfully, I can edit comments. :)

    His behavior is despicable yet if this were a Democrat it would not even be mentioned.
    I remember their defense of Clinton’s behavior and it is important that their elected officials
    are Roe v Wade supporters.
