  • 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.

  • DavidH

    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.

  • larryco,

    Good thing I am an Elder. 🙂
