Garamendi, CD10 get ‘Better Known’

Congressman John Garamendi allowed himself to be the latest victimsubject of Stephen Colbert’s “435-part series,” Better Know a District on Comedy Central’s “Colbert Report” last night.

No mention of Lamorinda in the roughly-six minute segment, but Fairfield’s Jelly Belly factory, Livermore’s centennial lightbulb and Walnut Creek (you’ll just have to watch) get shout-outs.

And Colbert rips into Garamendi for not actually living in the 10th Congressional District (Garamendi says his Walnut Grove home is right on the border).

Check it out:

All I can say is, as a native Livermorian (Livermoron?), thanks for ruining our lightbulb, Stephen.

Despite the ribbing on his residence and an awkward marriage proposal from Cobert, Garamendi didn’t make a fool of himself, which is about the best you can hope for in an interview with Colbert.

    You said you like living in the district but you don’t live there?

    Sure, he didn’t make a fool of himself.
