Stephen Colbert’s Testimony Before House Judiciary Committee

This  certainly is strangely riveting. Stephen Colbert testified before congress today in character.

Whether or not you think it is funny, what is fascinating is that the setting creates a situation in which the audience is absolutely uncertain how to react. Great example about how media  and culture  is always created and received in a particular context. And that can make all the difference.

What I like about this is less the routine than the justified send-up of congressional hearings in general, with their  posturing and feigned indignation.
