Letter: Sen. Lee’s routine had me in stitches

(Scott Kowalchyk | Courtesy of CBS) Stephen Colbert spent five minutes mocking Utah's Sen. Mike Lee on Wednesday's edition of "The Late Show."

Now we learn that our esteemed U.S. Sen. Mike Lee is not only a constitutional scholar (self-proclaimed) but is also a stand-up comedian.

Such a brilliant performance he delivered on the Senate floor. Watch out, Stephen Colbert. Get out of the way, Jimmy Kimmel. You guys are amateurs. Lee’s “Let’s deal with climate change by having more babies” routine had me in stitches. I can’t wait for “Saturday Night Live” this week.

What’s truly sad is that educated and intelligent people like Lee can be so clueless on such an important issue.
