Another Dem folly (as if we didn’t have enough) – UPDATED

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.

  1. Wagging the dog. There’s another guy testifying today that the admin doesnt want any media coverage on:

    Christopher Coates will testify before the Commission on Civil Rights – in defiance of DOJ orders not to comply with a subpoeana – on the New Black Panther voter intimidation thing.

  2. No, liberals lost it long ago.
    But do you know who is the best stand up comedian today? Rush Limbaugh.
    He walked on the stage to a long standing ovation. When we finally sat down, Milton Berle style, he said, “No, don’t stop.” We obliged and laughed and applauded longer. He didn’t drink water. He didn’t stumble for one minute. Non stop motor mouth hysterical for more than an hour and a half, pausing only when the audience was laughing so hard we wouldn’t hear him anyway. He was as good as Jackie Mason.
    As with all comedy, it only works because it is based on things familiar to the audience. He played on all of our angers and fears. He was brilliant. We were validated.
    Rush is the greatest.

  3. If Dems will vote for a literal clown (and not even a funny one) like Al Franken, for the US Senate no less, this is just par for the course.

  4. A fitting tribute that it takes an invited jester, to crown the court a complete circus, and in the process makes a fool and mockery of those who invited him.

  5. Val, And the elites wonder why Americans are raging with anger! I followed the mood of the country via the news/internet while away but now that Im back I can safely say Ive never seen so much anger. Keep up the good work folks!
