David Letterman roasts Rep. Yoder over skinny dipping incident

August 21, 2012

David Letterman got some laughs at U.S. Rep. Kevin Yoder's expense after the congressman apologized for skinny dipping in the Sea of Galilee last summer. Last night's Top 10 list on "Late Night with David Letterman" mocked Yoder's excuses for the swim, which has drawn much criticism from political circles.

Yoder said he had been drinking when he took off his clothes following a long day on a fact-finding trip to Israel, but that alcohol did not play a factor.

Yoder, Brownback, and Kobach are all three a complete embarrassment to the state of Kansas. They should be cast as Larry, Moe and Curly in a John Carpenter movie.

LOL I think this is funny as heck. It really shows how in public a Rep has all these ethical beliefs and rules and is golden child for society and has no flaws...but as soon as the public is not in view.. BAMM break all the rules.

Not saying the Dems are much better but you got to admit.. at least the point out the flaws, even if its them AND suggest a solution. GOP just likes to point fingers...its never their fault.

The natives won't even swim in this place. Or at least those who claim to be native to the area.

yep, this was stupid, but rather harmless. I'm a little curious why we aren't hearing a lot more about the politician from Minnesota that was charged with molestation of a 17 year old boy? In my book, that is 100 times worse, yet we are hearing nothing about it. Why is that? Oh wait...I know...it's because he is a democrat.

Oh ye of little faith, are you not aware that these people, Tait, Brownback, Bush, Yoder, Perry, etc... go to church every Sunday to show the world that they are all holier than thou? These are what REAL Christians look like & what REAL Christians do! They do not want ANY government in our lives, (except of course for the fine print which says that their "less government" will decide what a woman can or cannot do with her own body (hmmmm, didn't a guy named Hitler sort of say those same things?). And I know there's a bible verse somewhere about when Jesus got plastered & jumped in the jordan river naked - but I just can't seem to find that one? And we all know the parable about when Jesus hung out with the billionaires & passed the legislation that forced all those scumbag people eating their meals out of trashcans to pay for the billionaires' taxes - I think that one is in Matthew? Oh no, Matthew was a tax collector, so which side was he on again? - it's really quite confusing isn't it?

Over the years i have gotten quite tired of the Republicans & their so called "moral majorities " of foot tappers, email writers to aides, pseudo religious Con Men & Women, etc.. It gets old !

Let me guess,...... Rep. Yoder is really a Democrat, whom the Democrats snuck into the Republican Party, to do something off color at election time ?

That's right !!!!

This is, indeed, a left leaning plot !!!!

Putin & the AntiChrist are at the bottom of it all !

Time for your Lithium !

Machi_man is for term limits & so am I! Something like two terms for US senator, three for a congressman & two for a governor. That's about as long an opportunity for potential graft & undue influence as any of 'em should get.

I no longer watch David Letterman. Why should I put up with "Horse Pucky" that he calls entertainment. How much is he getting paid by Obama Campaign or is he donating his time. Let the rich Democrats, along with the welfare industrial complex, continue to promise the poor every thing, but deliver nothing. Remember the movie Solient Green? Keep the "poor" ignorant and hopeful until you blow the whistle. But cares as long as you do not go?

The old pro of 'fraternization', the second letter of the C.L.a P. team, Clinton{Lewinskis}, Letterman{fraternizations} and Polanski{pedophile} is making fun of a drunk swimming buck naked in the Galilee?

I'd 'rather' be caught swimming buck naked then 'hitting' on female employees like Letterman does.

There is no off-time for a US Congressmen. They are our representatives 24 hours a day, 356 days a year. There should be no off-times for Congressmen.

We should have term-limits with our US Congressmen. Yoder is a classic example of what we do not want in a US Congressmen,

The Democrats should start a write-in process to oust this guy. We cannot have thoughtless men like this representing us in the US Congress. Seriously!!

These are the kinds of people telling us what gods to believe in, what that god says, and what we can and cannot do with our own bodies. Because of this, to remain credible and authentic, their behavior should be beyond reproach. And I just don't see many politicians these days being beyond reproach in behavior.

The answer to this issue should be that the GOP STOPS telling us about some odd god, what he is saying, and what to do with our bodies. Then we can forgive such childish antics in Yoder, and allow him to remain in office.

Yoder should step down.

At least he wasn't texting pictures of his dong to younger women while married I guess...

Jumping in the water naked is an odd thing to do. I've done it on occasion, while drunk and in the company of women. at night, but it isn't how I usually entered the water.

It was probably not the right thing to do if you want to represent the prudish citizenry of the fine dust bowl of Kansas.

This is a non issue.

However, this non-issue is probably the most recognition Yoder has ever received or will ever receive.

Sad that voters chose such a mediocre congressman.

Who cares? This issue is overblown. Can we pay attention to more important things? I'd rather have a law maker who is a little loose than high strung.

The assumption that Yoder was overcome with religious frenzy is secondary to the fact that he and his wife, took the trip on some other dude's dime.
Smoke and mirrors.

At least Connie Morris was perversely entertaining. Search for her article in The Pitch. Here it is:
