    Colbert to testify at House immigration hearing: report

    Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert is slated to testify in front of a House immigration subcommittee, and it's "not a TV stunt," reports the Daily Caller.

    According to an exclusive report from Jonathan Strong, the host of the nightly Colbert Report will appear "in character" in front of the committee on Friday to talk about the Union of Farm Workers' "Take Our Jobs" initiative.

    A spokesperson for the House Judiciary Committee told the Caller that Colbert's appearance is "a serious issue ... this is not a TV stunt."

    If confirmed, Colbert's appearance in front of a House subcommittee will mark yet another blurring of the line between politics and Comedy Central's late-night political talk shows.
    A couple of things

    1. /facepalm

    2. It shows how the US Federal Government is run by complete retards.

    Granted the guy is really smart and is well-informed on all sorts of issues but WHY?

    Who are you to speak to such important people, mere civilian that you are?

    BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA *breathe* HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Seriously Congress? Like seriously? You feel the need to have Colbert testify? At the time it may not be a TV-stunt, but Colbert will run wild with this once it is over.

    If he was out of character, maybe.

    But IN character, no way.

    I think this is perfect, Congress will have someone explain things to them in a way they understand. I think a kindergarten teacher would be better, because she could instruct in the use of crayons.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.
