    WASHINGTON - At 9:37 a.m. Friday, a man in a navy suit bounded into a packed committee room in the Rayburn House Office Building wearing the wide grin of a politician. Surrounded by a scrum of clicking photographers, he marched over to the witness table, plunked himself down on a leather chair and smoothed back his hair.

    Stephen Colbert was ready to testify.

    "I certainly hope that my star power can bump this hearing all the way up to C-SPAN 1," he said. (The proceedings were on C-SPAN 3.)

    Colbert's role as a witness on migrant farm labor before the House Judiciary Committee's Subcommittee on Immigration, Citizenship, Refugees, Border Security and International Law marked a new permutation of the brand of humor that he and Jon Stewart have honed.

    No longer content with just parodying politicians, they are increasingly extending the joke into the very halls of government that they mock.

    The two Comedy Central hosts will step further into the political arena on Oct. 30, when they hold rival rallies on the National Mall.

    Yes, the hardcore fauxcon GOP reps are exactly that, particularly the douche King from Iowa. Don't act stupid, guys, if you don't want to be made fun of. That was good Congressional theatre yesterday, and the pervs are complaining nthat they were perved out. :lol:

    When the Republicans controlled Congress, didn't one of their number invite Elmo to testify? I think they had Chris Farley impersonate Newt back in the '90s right before a Republican budget meeting.

    It's hard to find any fruits or vegetables that were grown in the US at the stores I go to. Maybe he is trying to help the family of the gangbangers who supply him with drugs. It always boils down to money. Anyone who stands up for the invaders of the US have a personal agenda.

    you know... reading your posts, they aren't reflective of any actual reality.

    so i'm thinking maybe you need to stop making stuff up as you go along.

    or maybe... you're just too stupid to realize that you're living south of the border and need to move north.

    :cuckoo:

    I have a problem with calling Colbert a "Comedian" first, you should generally be funny to be labeled as such and second, he is a legitimate newsman. He is this generation Cronkite.

    Colbert, Stewart and Maddow are the Big Three in Progressive News.

    He did not report the news. He slanted thing to fit his own way of thinking. Did he ever mention that there are Americans living in tent cities that could do that work? NO. He simply defended the Mexican's Anti-American agenda.

    I am a "real american".

    I hate racists.

    And if you ever add anything to the board, we'll be sure to respond to you accordingly. But apparently, I'm not the only person who doesn't think much of you.
