Seems even some lefty journos didn’t think it was funny:
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.”

The country is falling apart from within and who do the Dems have testifying this morning in Congress?
Comedy Central humorist Stephen Colbert is set to testify before a House subcommittee on immigration at 9:30 a.m. today. Yes, you heard that right. Colbert is scheduled to appear alongside United Farm Workers President Arturo Rodriguez, whose group initiated a campaign called “Take Our Jobs” that challenged U.S. citizens to replace immigrants in farm work. On last night’s edition of “The Colbert Report,” Colbert took the challenge, packing corn and picking beans to see if he could handle farm labor. As it turns out, he really can’t.
They’ve finally lost it.
