Stephen Colbert's Not Rep. Garamendi's Type
Last night on the Colbert Report, Congressman John Garamendi took part in Stephen Colbert’s Better Know a District segment. The two covered a lot of ground in the short, satricial segment. Colbert asks the Congressman why he’s too good to live in his own District—Garamendi represents the 10th, but actually lives in the 3rd. The Congressman, a self-proclaimed “tree hugger,” talks about his environmental record and defends voting to resume drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. But I think the Rep. might have hurt Colbert’s feelings when talking about his opposition to California’s Prop 8.
