Making sense out of the world of politics

Stephen Colbert hides truth about farm workers behind jokes; Establishment still confused

leave a comment »

The sense that many in the establishment still don’t understand Stephen Colbert continues to amaze those who have been in on the “joke” since the Colbert Report debuted in 2005.

They didn’t get him in 2006 at the White House Correspondents Dinner, and they didn’t get him Friday during his testimony about farm workers before a House committee.

As the topic has a food-related angle, I wrote about this for my sister blog, Balance of Food.com.

Here is the column. Enjoy!
