The Quad Cities area has been discussing the possibility of newly elected 17th district representative Phil Hare being asked to appear on the Colbert Show's segment 'Better Know A District.' The real media has latched onto the story as well as the blogging community.
I personally think it can be a good experience provided someone knows what they are getting into. Colbert definitely tries his best to make a fool out of his political interviewees. Though prospects for the interview aren't lloking good.
Congressman-elect Hare said today he was considering the appearance but was leaning toward turning down Mr. Colbert, who skewers right-wing talk show hosts with his 'O'Reilly Factor'-style persona.
Would you want your representative featured? Why or why not???
