|The Colbert Report||Mon - Thurs 11:30pm / 10:30c|
|Better Know a District - New York's 25th - Dan Maffei|
Watching this replay last night of a Colbert Report episode that aired last week, it was hard to envision a Minnesota congressperson agreeing to be interviewed by Stephen Colbert or -- more important -- agreeing to finish the sentence, "I like the company of prostitutes because...."
For the record, no sitting member of the Minnesota delegation has been interviewed by Colbert for his "Better Know a District" series.
For my own amusement, here is my ranking, from most to least likely to be interviewed:
1. Tim Walz
2. Keith Ellison
3. Betty McCollum
4. John Kline
5. Jim Oberstar
6. Erik Paulsen
7. Collin Peterson
8. Michele Bachmann
Walz was interviewed by Colbert BEFORE he took office. Colbert noted that he represented a district where SPAM is made and said the nation deserved an explanation.
Tim Walz was interviewed already. Colbert did a "blitz" At Harvard's Kennedy School of Government 2006 Luncheon For Incoming New Members Of The 110th Congress.
Does anyone have a link to the Walz interview? I was just looking for one last night after seeing southern MN marked yellow on Colbert's "District" map last night!
Laura, that's why I said no "sitting" member of the Minnesota delegation was interviewed. Walz was on in 2006.
For the record, cocaine and prostitution never came up.
When you have Spam to explain, both coke and hookers fade in significance.
