Steny Hoyer says that Stephen Colbert's presentation before Congress last week was inappropriate, but he won't say that Colbert shouldn't have been invited.
Nancy Pelosi, the chronic spinmeister that she is, says the appearance was terrific.
While the event was a PR nightmare for the Democrats, it was worse for Colbert, who appeared determined to insult congress for purposes of self promotion. If he'd said something funny, there might be some room for forgiveness, but the whole thing played horribly. Was this a jump the shark moment for Colbert?
