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.
Terri Henderson, 6, center, whose mother is El Salvador, attends a rally with members of Congress at Union Station's Columbus Circle to announce the Restore Opportunity, Strengthen, and Improve the Economy (ROSIE) Act on July 29, 2014. The legislation provides incentives for government contractors to pay a living wage and other benefits that would help low-income workers.
