On Monday night, Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo.) appeared in a segment of "The Colbert Report." Stephen Colbert paid the openly gay freshman congressman a visit on Capitol Hill to discuss, among other things, his sexual orientation and an article where he described Congress as "like going back to college."
When asked about this comparison, the Congressman replies with a smirk, "yes." What follows is an engagement that leads Congressman Polis to "doing a beer bong" with comedian Colbert. As Colbert whips out a six-pack of Coors Light, the Congressman laughs, "Oh good, from Colorado."
Is Congress really "like college"? Probably not, but at bare minimum this comical segment allows us to better imagine what it would look like if our congressmen were actually doing beer bongs on the House floor.
