Colbert and the ‘Fair and Balanced’ Mural

Maine's banned labor mural

I missed this the first time around, but it was forwarded to me by my buddy Kirk Anderson.

In the video embedded below, Stephen Colbert gives the faux-conservative take on why it was necessary for Maine’s governor to remove a labor mural from the Department of Labor. He quotes the governor justifying the move, saying that the mural “sparked complaints from some business owners…” and that “the message from state agencies needs to be balanced.”

Colbert’s money quote:

“I agree. All murals need to be fair and balanced. After all, Da Vinci’s ‘Last Supper’ only tells Jesus’ side of the story. They should balance it by adding a Roman with a sack of nails.”
