Cowboys and Comedy
09.30.2010 - By Sociology Improv
This week, we have two special guests: Gwen Sharp  from Sociological Images  and Don Waisanen  from ThickCulture .
First, we talk about a couple of Gwen's recent posts on Soc Images regarding whiteness, cowboys, and the Republican's "Pledge"  and the mythology of being a country boy/girl . (Oh, and vajazzling .)
Second, we talk about Stephen Colbert's Congressional testimony. Don thinks it missed the mark , we compare Colbert and Stewart, and discuss the complexity of satire and irony in politics.
