Rep. Brad Sherman’s porn name

Can’t believe I mentioned this at LA Observed a while back, but neglected to link it here. “The Colbert Report” on Comedy Central devoted a segment to informing viewers about the San Fernando Valley, and especially its 27th congressional district. Congressman Brad Sherman played along, answering Colbert’s questions with a straight face and mock-angrily objecting whenever the host brought up the Valley’s rep as Porn Valley. (Brit Hume on Fox News called Sherman “a good sport” for playing the straight man.) Blogger Matt Szabo reminded me of the clip and links to the video, saying it “defines the acronym LOL and is absolutely Must See TV for every L.A.-area politico.”
