Stephen Colbert (in character, no less!) gave his opening statement before a Subcommittee panel Friday during a hearing on illegal immigration, border security, and citizenship. He explained his involvement with the United Farm Workers campaign to put agricultural jobs into the hands of unemployed Americans.
Did he break a leg? Or did he break someone’s heart?
Not everyone was easily amused by Colbert’s shtick. Utah GOP Rep. Jason Chaffetz, a member of the House Judiciary Subcomittee, called Colbert’s testimony “sad” and “unfortunate.” Ouch! All them haters had their 15 seconds of fame; but in the end, Colbert got the last laugh.
