COLBERT SPEAKS THE TRUTHINESS

Rate this Entry

Most people have now heard about Stephen Colbert's testimony in front of the House Immigration Subcommittee this week on the subject of new laws for migrant farmworkers. Some have criticized the Committee for letting the comedian speak. I say, how high can the standards be if they let me testify


My friend Stuart Anderson of the National Foundation for American Policy has a thoughtful piece explaining why the testimony was helpful. 


Here's the video link if you missed the testimony.

    Reporters comments:

    Colbert 'made mockery' of Congress

    Despite the fact that countless Washington reporters couldn't help but watch Stephen Colbert's Capitol Hill testimony Friday, not all were enthralled by the Comedy Central star's performance, as they expressed on Twitter.


    "REALLY not sure this is funny," wrote ABC News' Rick Klein.


    "Colbert is making a mockery of this hearing," said Mother Jones' David Corn.


    "Colbert's testimony made a mockery of Congress," said the Washington Post's Aaron Blake.


    The Hill's Mike O'Brien said, "This might be the most amazing public stunt before Congress."


    National Review's Kathryn Lopez wrote that "a congressional chairman made a joke of her committee today."

    I don't see anything wrong with making a joke of the jokers. Actually, calling them jokers is too kind. Most of our politicians are crooks, if not outright then due to the fact that they take money under false pretenses (ie they don't do their jobs).

    Was any action taken on the oversight panel for Consular officer's decision? The process still seems very arbitrary to me.
