The Sunset District’s Very Own Jackie Speier Takes On Stephen Colbert and Wins

Wednesday, November 18th, 2009

You know United States Congresswoman Jackie Speier (D - CA 12th District), right? She represents the people in San Francisco’s Sunset District (in addition to a lot of folks down San Mateo County way). Well won’t they be proud when they see how she acquitted herself against the likes of Stephen Colbert of the Colbert Report.

Check out the video interview over at Capital Notes, courtesy of KQED’s John Myers.

Go Jackie, go!
