Conservatives Attempt Satire, Fail

News & Politics

There's nothing more confusing than wingnut attempts at satire.

Here for instance is an emanation that recently made itself detectable over at NRO, where the zingers include advice, intended, if you please, as satirical, that the GOP might at some point begin filing "frivolous ethics complaints against all [Democratic] elected officials" (keep in mind that that this is supposed to be in the tradition of Swift (Ernie Swift, a guy I was in junior high school with, who liked to snort his own boogers for yuks)) -- something we're supposed devoutly to wish has never ever occurred to Republicans ever in the past (see also the 1990s, et passim) (and yes, this sentence is grammatical, motherfucker: the convoluted (but correct) structure mirrors the convolution of the logic being discussed, and so this sentence, in fine, exhibits a pleasing symmetry of content and form). We also learn that the election of Barack Obama, as well as the elaborate conspiracy to pull the wool over the eyes of the nation so that Sarah Palin always looks like an idiot whenever she talks, even though she's IN TRUTH Jesus, Buddha, Milton Friedman, and the Fucking Wizard of Oz wrapped into one magical moose-murdering package, is really all to do with a Sinister Hidden Agenda:
