Bushs Latest Announcement
This one takes the cake. He is a friggin dictator in diguise!!!
History of the world part II....It's Good to be the KING.
The best satire is that which is close to the truth.
Let's take a look and see what powers king george has granted himself.
Sorry Pujo, missed it.
Actually, I'm happy more people read The Onion!!
Nem, I think you're mistaking it for another publication, the Onion is very serious. Deadly serious.
NEM, are you being sarcastic? Or do you not get Pujo's sarcasm?
I think the Onion is dead serious, but that doesn't mean its stories are true. It's like Steven Colbert.
Stephen Colbert is "deadpan" rather than "dead serious".
The best thing about Colbert is he actually has many old farts on the right believing he's NOT satirical, that he's one of them. And his viewership among the 20 somethings is off the charts. They know what he's up to.
I love when he fools people into thinking he's actually a right-winger, but I was pleasantly surprised by his interview with Joe Scarborough. Turns out Scarborough is a huge fan of his show and got all the inside jokes (he was feigning ignorance on why such a conservative show would have such a liberal audience).
I'd love to see Colbert interview Ali G.
Classic Colberts include his getting a Dem politician to say that the drugs and whores came around because...."it was a fun thing to do"
But the Formidable Opponent skit is the tops.
You mean Sasha Baron Cohen or Ali G, in character? Personally, I think unless Ali G is interviewing somebody, he's very annoying (I love Da Ali G show but only the interview segments - not when he's just in character for the hell of it, and the movie was the worst piece of crap I ever turned off after 10 minutes). It's too bad the Sasha Baron Cohen was a victim of his own success, I don't think he'll be able to fool anyone with his Ali G, Borat, or Bruno characters anymore.
