  •  Wow, that was quick! (4.00)
    I put up a parody of this idiot's supporters

    I put it up on two threads

    and it disappears (both of them) in less that five minutes.  

    Wow!  

    Won't be writing any parodies any more.  

    Shit!  

    If you're not feeding red meat to our base, you're nothing but a mole.

    •  I resurrected it (none)
      Got the parody - but you have to admit, it was very subtle.  Few people have the stomach to read winger rhetoric long enough to determine that it's actually parody.

      I like it, anyway.

      •  I made sure to include (none)
        a number of common factual errors, to tip off the wary, though I understand if people went off on it before they read it closely.  

        I'm impressed with the responses.  Very savvy.  Some better than others, but none was even "average."  Good stuff.

    •  Satire (none)
      As I say above, your satire didn't have any winks in it (at least until the very end), so I think it was a bit hard for people to catch. Hell, if I hadn't noticed the name attached to the post, I might have missed it myself. Don't give up on satire.
      •  OK... (none)
        I was bamboozled. Didn't notice the author either.

        At least I gave it a 2.  I thought it was a pretty good rant, even when I thought it was REPUGlican.

    •  Some folks are (none)
      just a touch thin-skinned around here....

      WTF over?

      I can't believe you got troll rated for that, GMT. I'm feeling about as sharp as your average crayon in the hands of three-year-old today and even I knew it was a satirical piece.

      Paranoia, not just for republicans anymore.

      •  Obviously, (none)
        you're selling yourself short.  

        I went round and round with a bunch of idiots yesterday on precisely these points.  Dumb as a box of rocks.  

        People are touchy, btw, because we are in the cross-hairs.
