Today, Stephen Colbert addressed congress, in character, about the dependence of farms on immigrant labor. Just now I was watching Anderson Cooper 360 where he claimed it was a stunt that did nothing but wist tax payer dollars, but I say how is that any different than the senators that stand up every day to BS about how they know what's best for us. All talking the same message of bring in new ideas, new practices yet sticking with the old ones that don't work. To me that is more a waste of money.
Stephen Colbert and John Stewart are comedians who both joke about the state politics in America and the reason behind that is simply because American's a s a whole have a tendency to not see when something being said or done is foolish. Political satyr is just as a powerful a median of getting a point across as any other so why is it not a viable outlet to lawmakers? Men can stand before congress for hours arguing back and forth and getting absolutely nothing done and I do me absolutely nothing done. Why is any other citizen of the United States not allowed the same respect? Stephen Colbert is a comedian, but he respects our nation, our troops. He does more in support of our nation than many people do in a life time so why is he wrong?
They might not like the methods, but Stephen Colbert has just as much a right to speak as any of the Senators that we pay to barely help us
