In this comedic skit, not unlike Jon Stewart’s, Stephen Colbert goes after Rush Limbaugh.
In Colbert’s sarcastic rant, I liked the personal attack on Rush regarding the fact he has been married four times.
The LEFT media cannot help themselves, can they?
Notice how there is really no discussion of the issue of religious freedom vis a vis contraception and who pays for it – I mean, after all, it is Comedy Central….
Stephen Colbert gives his opening statement during a hearing of the Subcommittee on Immigration, Citizenship and Border Security (from C-SPAN 9/24/10 coverage)
The Democrats will live to regret this tongue-in-cheek sarcastic performance by Colbert. Americans are angry and are in no mood for this type of mockery at the taxpayer’s expense.
Here is video of comedian Stephen Colbert testifying before the House Judiciary subcommittee at the request of Democratic Rep. Zoe Lofgren, on the subject of illegal migrant workers. The pretense for his being an expert witness was Colbert’s one day laboring with migrant workers in New York.
There will be plenty of replays on the nightly newscasts, illustrating that Democratic control of Congress guarantees that important issues are dealt with in only the most sensitive, serious, and mature terms.
Nope, just kidding. What the video actually shows is a cringe-inducing Andy-Kaufmanesque display of audacity, which will illustrate that when silly Members of Congress desirous of the attention of popular comedians invite said comedians to embarrass them and the process over which they preside, they will happily oblige them.
Colbert embarrassed them so much, in fact, that he was asked by Rep. John Conyers to leave the committee room after his in-character, insensitive, and occasionally kind of racist testimony ended. Conyers later backed off the request, and Republican Rep. Lamar Smith delighted in prolonging the pain of Democrats who invited Colbert by asking him several questions on the matter (and getting an endorsement for the Pledge to America).
