Stephen Colbert to Testify on Capitol Hill

by Daniel Foster

Let the tax cuts wait, this is the Colbert Report:

Comedy Central host Stephen Colbert is slated to testify at a congressional hearing Friday on immigration titled “Protecting America’s Harvest,” two sources have told The Daily Caller.

One Republican source said Colbert will be testifying “in character,” the Bill O’Reilly-like muse Colbert uses for his show.

A Judiciary Committee spokeswoman, confirming Colbert would testify, said the hearing matter was a “serious issue . . . this is not a TV stunt.”

Some Republicans have already expressed unhappiness with Colbert witnessing at the hearing, thinking it would make light of a serious issue.

The hearing is before the House Judiciary Committee’s immigration subcommittee.

How incredibly bizarre. More here.
