If I didn’t know our illustrious Congress so well, I’d guess this was only a joke:
Comedy Central host Stephen Colbert is slated to testify at a congressional hearing Friday on immigration titled â€œProtecting Americaâ€™s Harvest.â€
One Republican source said Colbert will be testifying â€œin character,â€ the Bill Oâ€™Reilly-like muse Colbert uses for his show.
A House Judiciary Committee spokeswoman, confirming Colbert would testify, said the hearing matter was a â€œserious issue . . . this is not a TV stunt.â€
Some Republicans have already expressed unhappiness with Colbert witnessing at the hearing, thinking it would make light of a serious issue.
One thing’s for sure: Colbert won’t be able to be any funnier than the federal government’s inept and barely half-assed attempt to protect the border.
Are you starting to think that part of our national security and border problems might stem from the fact that Congress is seeking advice from comedians? But enough about the Obama administration…
