Stephen Colbert's 'better know a district' throws a fish with Rep. Jim McDermotton September 13, 2013 @ 7:48 am (Updated: 8:29 am - 9/13/13 )
"The fightin' 7th!" shouted "Colbert Report" host Stephen Colbert as he introduced his interview with the representative from Washington's 7th congressional district, Jim McDermott.
McDermott was the subject of Colbert's ongoing, 434-part series "Better Know A District" and kept it to the hard hitting questions, kind of.
"Sir Mix-a-Lot is from Seattle," said Colbert. "Congressman, do you like big butts?"
McDermott played it straight and said he wasn't sure what Colbert meant by the question, and inevitably admitted he wasn't a huge fan of large derrieres.
In the interview, McDermott sung the praises of Seattle, and commented on why he doesn't say "under God" when reciting the Pledge of Allegiance on the House floor.
The pair ended their time together by fulfilling Colbert's wish of throwing a fish just like they do at Pike Place Market. McDermott was the catcher.
They might need a little more practice.
