The Fightin' Fifth!

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."

She did great!!! I love the fact he calls Oregon, "California's Canada" or "Washington's Mexico".

Or, that he says there are two Canadas: Oregon, and Canada!

She did amazingly well, and appeared to be having a great time.

I was also pleased to see Colbert's thrashing of prayer bears. Though it was awful to see that he had caved.
