Comedy Central’s Two Thorns In The Belly Of The Beast

Fox News: Attn. Glenn Beck.

Eat your heart out. Comedy Central is upstaging you guys.

Fox News may have a front row seat at the White House press room, but none of you on-air guys have testified before Congress.

That “honor” goes to the funny channel’s Stephen Colbert (pronounced col-BEAR for you un-elites).

He testified as an “expert” before the House Judiciary subcommittee on immigration because of a show he did in July where he worked for one day as a farm laborer.

“At this point, I break into a cold sweat at the sight of a salad bar,” he said.

Not to be outdone, Comedy Central No. 1 star Jon Stewart will conduct a Rally to Restore Sanity at the foot of the Lincoln Memorial on Oct. 30.

That’s a location Glenn Beck knows well.

All seriousness aside you conservatives, these two comedians are pulling your leg. It is drawing attention of a nation in dire need of a good laugh in hard times. Certainly, the Democrats have failed in all seriousness.

Just how serious? Well, that old sourpuss John Conyers, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, initially requested that Colbert leave the hearing room before his testimony, arguing that his presence had achieved its purpose by bringing attention to the hearing’s subject matter.

Actually, this warfare between the cable network’s Goliath in Fox News versus the upstart clowns in the classrooms, Comedy Central, is worth watching. Both, in their inimitable fashion, make their points much better than the politicians who they are bonded with in the direction the country is taking.

And now Congress is a player in the two networks ratings game. Who woulda thunk that? Of course, with approval ratings of Congress below the Mendoza line (a baseball term in which a batter is hitting under .200), Colbert, Stewart and Beck are doing THEM the favor.
