You’re not the boss of me, Nancy Pelosi!


#53 in the Better Know a District series; Stephen Colbert interviews Jason Chaffetz from Utah’s “Fightin’ Third” district. I voted for this guy! He does pretty well; I shudder to think how Chris Cannon would have dealt with Colbert.

By the way, our black person is pretty nice; I saw him on BYU campus one day last year.

I’ve made several attempts to write a post on this blog about why I’ve never enjoyed the phenomenon of High School Musical, at least not nearly as much as my siblings seem to, other than that I’m much more cynical, but then the Agony Booth crystallized it much better than I could. It’s not that it’s a bad show, or franchise, it’s just, as they put it, “stunningly mediocre.” Filled with black-and-white issues and cliches. That’s great for 10-15-year-olds, but I like to see a bit more humanization in things I watch.

That’s all.
