Nancy Pelosi stated that the recent testimony given in front of a Congressional Committee by Stephen Colbert was “pretty f**$%#^ great,” and was looking forward to appearances next week by Lenny Bruce, Richard Pryor and Chris Rock. “This one is up for best M-F^*^&%^* performance in front of a live Congressional audience,” she was overheard to quip.
Pelosi was not offended by the abrasive comics remarks and general disdain for the committee and its members. At the conclusion of his performance Colbert had to be escorted out by a seven man security team. In responding to remarks of Republican leaders regarding the lack of decorum and respect shown to Congress by Colbert, Pelosi said, “Let those Repubtard Pricks grow a pair and learn to live a little.”
