DUMB CELEBRITIES: Colbert Embarrasses Dems; Conyers Asks Comedian to Leave. Michael Moore on Suicide Watch?


The appearance of comedian Stephen Colbert before the House Judiciary Committee's Subcommittee on Immigration, Citizenship, Refugees, Border Security, and International Law has turned into an embarrassment for the Democrats responsible for the hearing.

The subcommittee is chaired by Rep. Zoe Lofgren, but Rep. John Conyers is chairmen of the larger Judiciary Committee. In that role, he has a seat on the subcommittee, and he spoke up early in the hearing. To the surprise of many observers, Conyers used his time to ask Colbert to leave.

"I'm so happy that you've helped us fill the room," Conyers said to Colbert. "I haven't seen this many cameras since -- when?"

"Maybe since impeachment," said Lofgren, to pained laughter among the lawmakers.

At that point, Conyers thanked Colbert for showing up and asked him to leave the room. Colbert seemed confused. Was Conyers asking him not to speak? No, Conyers said, he was asking him to leave altogether.

"You run your show," Conyers said. "We run the committee."

"You run your show," Conyers said. "We run the committee."

Colbert said he was there at the invitation of Lofgren and would do whatever she asked. Seeking a moment to think, Lofgren asked Republican Rep. Dan Lungren to speak for a few moments while she decided what to do.

Colbert stayed in place as the other witnesses made opening statements. When Colbert's turn came, Conyers briefly interrupted to say that he was withdrawing his request for Colbert to leave.

Then Colbert began his testimony, which was an in-character schtick based on a one-day visit to an upstate New York farm. "This is America," Colbert said. "I don't want a tomato picked by a Mexican." As the hearing went on, Colbert said things like, "I was a cornpacker…cornpacker is a derogatory term for a gay Iowan."

Michael Moore on Suicide Watch?

This video is evidence that 'liberalism' is a mental disorder. These two DISHONEST clowns are actually mad at democrats for not doing even MORE damage to this country than they already have! Republicans for the rich? Do these two idiots know that it's the democrats who are in the pockets of Wall Street, Goldman Sachs, BP oil, Countrywide, trial lawyers and the unions to name a few?!?

Keith Olbermann noted on Countdown tonight that “this is the day health care reform began to take effect.” He then quickly added the Democrats celebrated the enactment of the bill today by saying…nothing. It’s safe to say he wasn’t thrilled by this…and (surprise!) it’s even safer to say his guest Michael Moore isn’t enamored of Democrats currently, either.

So Olbermann and Moore took their turns taking shots at Democrats for being spineless (and some shots at Republicans for good measure), with Olbermann asking, “Where is the leadership?” and Moore saying, “We look ridiculous.” Moore even, in a sly bit of cross-promotion, said the day so discouraged him that he rather watch NBC’s Thursday night comedy lineup.

  2. Comrade Conyers has reached the doddering point being barely able to string two words together.
