The segment with fake newsman Stephen Colbert featured an exhaustive trading-off of a one-person wave and the pair shooting silly string at each other in the hallway of Lee's Washington office.
Later, Colbert feigned coming on to the 68-year-old representative. "I'm practicing abstinence right now, as we speak, but that could change if you play your cards right. I'm just saying. Am I the only one? I can't only be the only one feeling this right now. Turn the camera off I want to give her some privacy."
In addition, some in the media are raising eyebrows over a not particularly funny exchange when Colbert's conservative character asked Lee if she was a life-time member of the Urban Caucus.
