Colbert, as part of his "Better Know a District" series, visited with the Congressman for NY 25, Dan Maffei.

Bless his heart - Maffei is a Dem in a pretty Republican leaning district, so it was pretty ballsy of him to take part in Colbert's hijinks, including a bit (around the 4th minute) where Colbert gets self-confessed Star Trek fan Maffei to imagine what he'd be like in the evil universe, complete with goatee....

I was watching it on TiVo this morning while making my breakfast and I totally LOL'ed. "I enjoy visiting prostitutes because it degrades women..."

Even though I don't really understand American Politics, that was pretty cool of that Congressman to be such a good sport.... and he's kinda cute too! :-)

It's good to see a politician agree to a bit of silliness. That's actually what first drew me to Obama - he was a guest on a radio quiz show a few years ago, and I remember being impressed with how easy-going he was, and that he wasn't afraid to goof around a bit.

Clearly, I have an icon born for this post!

I'd already liked what I heard about this Congressman before (le politiconerd, c'est moi)... now, I have to say, AWE SOME.

Too many pols are afraid of negative public reaction to a little jesting - get a sense of humor, folks!

(up early - getting ready for carpet installers this morning. Still got to get my bed out of the bedroom before they arrive...)
