Believed the 'Onion', huh? So did "Luv Sarah Palin" a week or so ago. At least THEY don't get American satire. What was her excuse?

What's amusing to me is: An obviously self-involved type of interest, on their part, led to this blunder. They'd have been paying no attention if it was any other subject; here, they couldn't resist. I'm reminded (if only in passing) of people who fall for scams because the money is so tempting.

Well he would bring a bizarre sense of humor to the Presidency and it WOULD make DC a bit more interesting with the beheadings and hangings that would inevitably result.

Not only can they NOT take a joke, they can't even accurately identify one.

That place really is in a bad way.

You do recall that our favorite, "Luv Sarah Palin," recently mistook an article from The Onion and cut and pasted it here on Topix, don't you? Your description is apt for either Iran or her. Both are about the same amount of fun loving and with it.
