    I don't think the topic matters. I think there's a huge difference between a person testifying and a ****ing puppet. I know which one I think is more ridiculous.

    You really think that is a valid comparison?
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    Actually, in the hardcore conservative county I grew up in, they have cancelled the music programs in schools. This is America, we can do better than that. For many, that is controversial. All politics are local. People get upset when these things happen.

    what? I thought Colbert was a ****ing puppet. They are both equally ridiculous and both should have to refund the taxpayers for wasting our money.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    I don't necessarily disagree. But, he was ****ing funny at least. I mean, I would NEVER have watched anyone else testify before a committee because that **** is just boring as all get out. I just wait and get the cliff notes version later.

    I don't really care so much that he was invited there to do a sucky comedy schtick. I care that he was invited there and paid for it.

    I have to disagree on this one. Normally I find him to be hilarious, too. However, his schtick in that committee hearing was flat and dull. I think to me it was just that it was far too surreal to actually be funny.

    Thought this might help some:

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
