I Love C-SPAN

I'm sort of idly watching C-SPAN's late nite rerun of RNC highlights, and here's Sec. of Education Ron Paige babbling on, proclaiming the success of Bush's programs. As he says something about "students are learning, teachers and principals are beaming with pride," the producers switch to a chubby little boy in his seat, head down and tuned out, blissfully pushing buttons on a Game Boy. Of course, no one in their right mind would expect an eight-year-old to sit in rapt attention to hour after hour of droning adults, but the juxtaposition was a riot.
