Colbert Mockery

I saw the video on this and my first thought was, 'Why is he doing this?'.
He supposedly spends one day in the fields doing a comedy act there and now he's an expert witness?

Then he does his comedy act on the committee floor... what a sham!

He certainly didn't portray someone who is actually concerned about the issue. No matter what side of the debate you're on, you at least want a serious discussion on it.

While it can be argued that other other celebrities have been called to witness at other congressional committees (George Clooney, Angelina Jolie come to mind) they at least gave the issue (whatever that issue is) a serious consideration.

If this was for publicity, in my opinion, it will end up being a negative one for Colbert. You could see half way through his act that he realized it was bad idea.

The Congress woman who arranged this really did this issue a disservice.

No one seemed to be amused at his humor.
