LePage Comment Fodder for Colbert
Faux conservative pundit Steve Colbert has weighed in on Governor Paul LePage's infamous "kiss my butt" comment.
LePage made national news last week for his response to a news reporter's question about his decision to decline the Maine NAACP's invitation to a Martin Luther King observance. "Tell 'em to kiss my butt," LePage said when asked if his nonparticipation was part of a pattern of dismissing the NAACP.
"I applaud Goveror LePage," Colbert said. "Before Dr. King came along, could anyone imagine a white politician openly inviting a black person to kiss him? And with pants! That's progress."
