Stick To Mocking Bears
Stephen Colbert’s appearance in character before a House committee today might be the dumbest political stunt since Caligula made his horse a Senator. It would be as if I went on “The Colbert Report” and just responded to everything he said with, “Yeah, but you’re just a comedian playing a character. You don’t really believe that, right?” Congressional Democrats are too busy to schedule a vote on taxes but not too busy to yuck it up in a hearing room, I guess.
Besides, if you’re going to have a comedian testify before Congress, it should clearly be Don Rickles. He would insult them for an hour and we would all nod in agreement.
