The Ten Commandments, with Hitchens, Colbert

À propos of yesterday’s post referencing the Ten Commandments, I thought I’d share this video of the late Christopher Hitchens proposing a rewrite of Christianity’s best-known moral code. The best bit starts at six minutes sixteen seconds.

Also, this: In 2008, Stephen Colbert met Georgia Congressman Lynn Westmoreland. Four minutes eighteen seconds into the video, Colbert asks the congressman about his ostensible love for the Ten Commandments. What follows is as staggering an act of political self-immolation as has ever been committed to tape — funny and mortifying at once.

Thanks for visiting — see you on Monday!
