Comedy Central host Stephen Colbert is slated to testify at a congressional hearing Friday on immigration titled “Protecting America’s Harvest.”Yes, because a TV comedian is the most expert person in the nation on an immigration question. The Democrats can't find someone with real expertise to testify?
One Republican source said Colbert will be testifying “in character,” the Bill O’Reilly-like muse Colbert uses for his show.
A House Judiciary Committee spokeswoman, confirming Colbert would testify, said the hearing matter was a “serious issue . . . this is not a TV stunt.”
Of course, as Mark Hemingway points out, this is the same party that reached out to Lady Gaga to pressure the Maine ladies to support the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell.
