Ok, ok, the crack about submitting his (Colbert) colonoscopy into the congressional record was pretty funny, but only because the demo's on the committee in my minds eye are pictured trying to figure out whether the early shots going in are Colbert's face, or ass.
Look, a Congressional Committee hearing costs hundreds of thousands of dollars an hour to put on. In this time with the tension that exists between both sides of the isle, and the problem that illegal immigration is today, apparently San Jose's finest daughter Zoe Lofgren thinks it appropriate in true Allenski fashion to mock, and ridicule those that are against her's and her colleagues on the demo side of the isle in this issue as well as the tax payer paying for the hearing to begin with this appearance.
Illegal immigration is a problem in this country and Lofgren with her invite, then subsequent request that Colbert's mic be turned back on when he refused to leave was an outrage, and one that had republicans done anything similar would have brought mass criticism from the very people in here now feigning disbelief that repub's are upset at this farce.
Demo's are trying so hard to justify this stupid invite that they bring up an Elmo appearance to the Education Appropriations Subcommittee to urge more spending on music research and musical instruments for school programs, but in no way are the two appearances even close to commensurate with each other. Elmo was there not to mock those opposed to school musical programs, but to plea for those programs.
This show only highlights what liberal demo's really think of the American people, and their process in congress as elite blowhards that believe that they can do anything they want.
If only the cost had occurred to that criminal republican who invited a puppet to appear before the committee. So demeaning to it's status.
I love the smell of face-palm in the morning!

Wait a minute, what republican invited Elmo? Can you show me that? Did Elmo mock the proceeding?
Elmo was testifying to an Education appropriations sub committee. Not a full blown committee on illegal immigration. You really think the two are parallel in substance or weight?
But hey, I guess as someone said earlier and hit it right on the head, as long as you can use that justification that is most often seen coming from 12 year olds...."Jimmy did it too!" Then it's alright...is that right?
Elmo is the only non-human or puppet ever to testify before the U.S. Congress. At the request and with the assistance of Rep. Duke Cunningham, he testified before the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services and Education in April 2002, urging support for increased funding in music education.
