Congressman Jim McDermott is used to answering hard questions -- but none as hard as those that Stephen Colbert peppered him with last night. Questions like, "Do you like big butts?" and "Do you get sprung?"

Part of a series called "Better Known District," Colbert focused on Washington's 7th, which encompasses Seattle. The humorist and host made sure to get in plenty of Starbucks, Bill Gates, and rain jokes -- but his reference to Sir Mix-A-Lot was by far the best part.

McDermott also addressed one of his most famous controversies: His decision not to say "under God" during the Pledge of Allegiance.

And, for the record, he does not like big butts.
