Why in the world would anyone ask a sharp, satirical TV talk show host to testify -- not do a comedic bit -- before the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration, Citizenship & Border Security about the subject of immigrant farm workers? Hel-lo?! Do you people not know he's from Comedy Central? Did you fail to Google The Colbert Report? What were you thinking?
It was damned gutsy for Colbert, in character, to make a mockery over the fact that a congressional committee would invite the likes of him to speak on this issue.
