"Send In the Clowns"

YouTube - Stephen Colbert, Corn Packer As America descends further into decline as all former great nations do over time such as the decline of the Roman Empire with its "Bread and Circuses", gladiators and feeding Christians to the lions, Stephen Colbert of the television show "The Colbert Report" recently testified before a Congressional Committee investigating the role of the migrant farm worker. In this "You Tube" video, Colbert described himself as a "corn packer" as he worked for a day on a corn farm packing up crates of corn. He hopes that no one is offended by the term "corn packer" which he said is another name for a "Gay Iowan".

It is good to see a little levity in the halls of Congress, don't you think? After all, under the able leadership of President Obama, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid;some say the governmental budget is balanced and may even show a surplus, unemployment is no longer a problem with many employers having trouble finding workers for their job openings, house prices are skyrocketing, just to name a few of the great things currently happening in this country. Of course, these people are mostly found in insane asylums.

The irony of "expert witness" Steven Colbert testifying is that he seems to fit right in with all the other clowns and jokers who are already currently members of our ruling class.

After his work as a "corn packer" there has been no confirmation as yet that Steven Colbert has plans to work a day at a candy factory and try his hand at being a "fudge packer".
