So, someone with a lot of time on their hands and an excessive amount of pent-up Chaffetz jokes, has stepped in and started @JasoninthePress, because Jay Chay is in the press a lot.
According to the new Twitter feed, fake Jay Chay loves scrapbooking, reliving his support of former Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis’ gun control stance and his vacation in Hawaii.
Fake Jay Chay also loves being the Kim Kardashian of Utah politics so, so much. (Though, it has to be said, even the fake Chaffetz falls well short of the real Kim’s assets.)
But, the real genius — in our humble opinion — is the Jason in the Press blog, especially the animated clip of what we assume is a fake exchange between Fake Jay Chay and fake Salt Lake Tribune Washington correspondent Thomas Burr.
The real Chaffetz is currently vacationing in Hawaii and is widely believed to be gearing up to challenge the surprisingly tall Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch (R) in 2012.
Vice President Joe Biden waits to conduct a mock swearing-in ceremony with Sen. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, in the Capitol's Old Senate Chamber, December 2, 2014. Schatz was sworn in to serve the remainder of his term since he was appointed to the seat after Sen. Daniel Inouye, D-Hawaii, passed away.
