Colbert suggests Cynthia Davis needs to starve

Stephen Colbert made sport of Missouri state Rep. and hunger advocate Cynthia Davis last night.

The O’Fallon Republican, who recently stated that hunger can be a positive motivator, made Keith Olbermann’s list of worst people in the world for her “Stomach Growls for Success!” idea. Now Colbert is piling on. Noting that Davis runs a Christian book store, Colbert edited the Book of the Matthew to fit her worldview. No longer will the Kingdom of God open to those who provided drink to the thirsty and comfort to the sick. Instead, Jesus is looking for those who encountered hunger and said: “Get a job.”

Colbert also came up with a clever suggestion for advancing Davis’ political career. Here’s the clip.
