    Colbert Offers Comedy Shtick in Farm Workers Testimony, Fails to Amuse Lawmakers

    There was a time i thought Cobert was kind of funny but he's become a total and complete fool. If you just read the following transcript from his sorry embarrassing appearance on Capital Hill, will agree that he is in need of serious attitude adjustment of a good B***h slapping to get it through his dense or empty head that some things in certain palces are just not funny worth a damn.

    This is America," Colbert continued. "I don't want a tomato picked by a Mexican. I want it picked by an American, then sliced by a Guatemalan and served by a Venezuelan in a spa where a Chilean gives me a Brazilian."
    Why didn't they just have Bill Maher come and call John Conyers the N word when he ask Colbert to leave.

    This is a sick puppy to think being a racist is funny ever.


    FOXNews.com - Colbert Offers Comedy Shtick in Farm Workers Testimony, Fails to Amuse Lawmakers

    Stephen Colbert's satirical routine as a conservative commentator on "The Colbert Report" leaves millions of his fans laughing every night, but the comedian failed to amuse lawmakers Friday during a House panel hearing on farm jobs and illegal immigrants.

    The Comedy Central star stayed in character during testimony as he made light of his experience working for one day as a migrant laborer on a vegetable farm in New York.

    "America's farms are presently far too dependent on immigrant labor to pick our fruits and vegetables," Colbert said. "Now the obvious answer is for all of us to stop eating fruits and vegetables, and if you look at the recent obesity statistics, you'll see that many Americans have already started."

    While some audience members laughed, most of the members of the House Judiciary subcommittee barely cracked a smile.

    It was a farce. I would have gone after him with both barrels spitting in the faces of illegal alien criminal victims and human trafficking disgraces while he makes fun of the problem.

    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    He's a comedian not a politician. And where was the racism again?

    It made about as much sense as anything else coming out of those chambers these days.

    I mean, Pelosi and Reid? What an utter embarassment to this country. It's like having Minnie Pearl and Grandpa from Hee Haw running Congress.

    Hey what is it with liberal brainiacs. If anyone says a negative word about any illegal from Mexico to the tip of Tierra del Fuego they are called a racist but when a Liberal, brain dead, imbecile makes disparaging remarks that are wholly in improper that's no harm no foul.

    Typical hypocrisy from the left. They talk a good game until one theirs is caught with his pants down showing his ass in public.

    Good call. Brilliant response.

    This highlights everything that is wrong with the right these days. Constant victimhood from every single mundane little thing that can be brought up. He's a COMEDIAN, doing SATIRE. Its not an issue there's nothing to discuss its a simple 5 minute thing in Congress that is so meaningless in its actual affect on the world it can be said it have never even happened.

    Tell where is the affect of Colbert's statements, what did it change in the world, nothing. But suddenly a comedian making a satirical, as in NOT MEANT TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY, statement is drummed up into this huge incident. And not only that but it stems directly from what many on the right say ALL THE TIME, that they don't want Mexican migrant workers doing this kind of work, ie picking fruit or whatever else in fields.

    This is America," Colbert continued. "I don't want a tomato picked by a Mexican. I want it picked by an American, then sliced by a Guatemalan and served by a Venezuelan in a spa where a Chilean gives me a Brazilian."

    Let me ask you, when he said that did you believe it was a SERIOUS point. Or that it was the left accusing the right of anything or whatever else you may have thought it was other than some comedian trying to make a joke? A joke whose racial content is something seen all the time by comedians of all races.

    There are "jokes" in your joke thread which would be considered more racist, in a relative context, than this. So please tell me, what is the big deal?

    I thought it was very funny..Since when did people become so upset about a comedian making fun of politics?
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    Colbert's "performance" just shows what a farce the US government is. Who invited him there again?
