Congress to Colbert: Come Up and See Us Some Time

So he did.

Judge: Miss West, are you trying to show contempt for this court?

Mae West: On the contrary, your Honor, I was doin' my best to conceal it.

We are all infinitely richer for Stephen Colbert's refusal to treat the US House of Representatives as gently.

Naturally, the usual suspects -- those bitter enemies of human freedom who want to abuse government policy to distort the labor market, conscript every last one of America's employers into service as unpaid ICE agents, and prattle on endlessly about laws that don't exist -- were outraged, in at least one case even in advance, over Colbert's appearance before the Subcommittee on Immigration, Citizenship and Border Security.
