Be honest. You’re going to miss her next year. Just a little.
Leaving her weekly press conference, Pelosi told reporters she thought it was appropriate for Colbert to appear as a witness, “He’s an American. He comes before the committee. He has a point of view.”
Pelosi added, “It can bring attention to an important issue like immigration. I think it’s great.”
I’m mighty curious to know what the limiting principle on that boldfaced bit is. Congress deals regularly with “important issues” that deserve more public attention, and celebrities can deliver public attention like no one else, so — what? Obligatory A-listers at every hearing? The One can’t sell “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan,” but hand Jerry Seinfeld a mic and put him in front of a brick wall backdrop and we might yet see those drain-circling numbers for ObamaCare start to float.
