Stephen Colbert to Testify Before Congress, Fox News Furious

Arch pundit Stephen Colbert is scheduled to appear before the House Judiciary Committee’s immigration subcommittee on Friday September 24 to discuss his experience picking fruit as part of the United Farm Workers Take Our Jobs program,  which invites U.S. citizens and legal residents to replace tens of thousands of immigrant field laborers, most of whom are undocumented.

Appearing on the Colbert Report in July, United Farm Workers President Arturo S. Rodriguez said that only three people have participated. Colbert’s participation increased the number to of participants to four.

The Daily Caller quotes a Republican source who claims the pseudo-conservative blowhard will appear in character before the committee. Fox and Friends Gretchen Carlson is really upset. She railed that it was a waste of tax payer dollars and an outrage that Colbert would appear in character under oath.

Batting her tarantula-like black lashes, the former Miss America and Stanford graduate said that there are better qualified people to testify and if Colbert insults Congress and wastes taxpayers money, his appearance will be discussed all weekend on Fox.
