Comment of the day

Comment of the day is from a Classical Values thread about an article in Time
Blaming the President for bad weather used to be a joke. Now, they're doing it with a straight face. Satire is becoming impossible as every possible reductio ad absurdam becomes a "mainstream" position.

It is so true that satire is becoming impossible.

Rush Limbaugh does fantastic pseudo-commercials, but of late people have been calling in to report they got really angered by some commercial from MoveOn or a group like that, and it appeared that they had listened to Rush pseudo-commercials, and believed it was real. There was even a columnist who mistook a commercial of Rush for real.

Some examples:

The lunatics have left the asylum.
