We're behind on our "Colbert Report" viewings, and just got to last Thursday's episode last night. So imagine our delight when we were treated to a profile of our Congressional district and our representative, Congresswoman Darlene Hooley!
We think Hooley did pretty well with Colbert, even calling the district "the fightin' fifth" in the opening of their conversation. She was clearly prepped well... Most of the jokes were about Oregon's medical marijuana law. In the introduction, Colbert said, "Medical marijuana can be used to treat conditions such as glaucoma. In an interesting development, all the residents of the state of Oregon have been diagnosed with glaucoma."
