On the edge of being … informed

If it wasn’t so close to home, perhaps I would have laughed harder.

Of course I have a mini-crush on Steven Colbert. If not for his devilish smile, then for his efforts to save U.S. speedskating.

But now he’s making fun of my home state. Have you ever seen a cheese log in the sun? His riff on the Wisconsin accent, oh my! (When I first moved to Kingston, N.Y. co-workers would write down sentences for me to say, so they could laugh and say “how cute.”)

I can’t imagine how difficult it is to be on his show. He usually totally flummoxes guests, like Robert Reich. I thought Randi Weingarten did a great job fending off Colbert’s questions that despite unions agreeing to cuts “why can’t they just go that one step further and agree that they never get to bargain for anything else again?”

If you didn’t get to see it, here’s a link. And if you’ve got the time, stay for the report about information gathering in Wisconsin.

Oh it’s good to have a sense of humor. It’s even better to listen to opposing viewpoints.

Busy day today. Hope to have a definitive list of more statewide rallies to support public education in coming weeks as well as more rallies supporting Wisconsin workers.
