[1]This week, we have two special guests: Gwen Sharp [2] from Sociological Images [3] and Don Waisanen [4] from ThickCulture [5].

First, we talk about a couple of Gwen's recent posts on Soc Images regarding whiteness, cowboys, and the Republican's "Pledge" [6] and the mythology of being a country boy/girl [7]. (Oh, and vajazzling [8].)

Second, we talk about Stephen Colbert's Congressional testimony. Don thinks it missed the mark [9], we compare Colbert and Stewart, and discuss the complexity of satire and irony in politics.
