THE ANCHORESS IS BORED BY THE SMUGNESS OF STEPHEN COLBERT:

When a friend of mine sent this clip from the Colbert Report — a chat between Stephen Colbert and Georgetown’s Father Thomas Reese on why Paul Ryan’s budget bothers Catholics — I expected to like it. I like Colbert. I like Jesuits. I like Father Reese. Though I’m not a Ryan “fan” he seems smart, and I like the idea (the very novel idea!) of an actual budget being proposed within our government.

And yet, I found myself not much liking the clip at all.
