    This is meant to be silly. However, I am posting it to be obnoxious.

    …and channeling King Benjamin to boot.

    Is it really that silly though? What I love about Colbert is how is able to make sharp criticisms and powerful points through sarcasm. My wife and I were cheering last night after watching this.

    Oh, it is serious criticism. My posting it is what is silly, in light of recent bloggernacle scuffles.

    Greg, it very much mirrors that argument of King Benjamin…the source of Nibley.

    I always thought it was kind of obvious . . .

    I believe the whole channelling chain goes:
    Jesus to King Benjamin, and then splits; with one arrow going to Nibley and one going to Lowell Bennion.
    Just givin’ props.

    p.s. be careful about bringing up the King Benjamin/The Poor thing in high priests class. You can get roughed up pretty badly in there.
