What is perhaps most annoying about the current political situation in the United States, and the absolute dearth of anything like good journalism or even reasoned analysis which it has brought about in most of the mainstream media, is that it has completely killed any chance for parody. Laughter is the best medicine, right? Well, it's a lot harder to laugh if you can't concoct some ridiculous notion or concept, and then reassure yourself "Nah, it'll never get that bad". So I thought for a while we could all be safe in laughing at the "Obama for Pope" kind of thing. Too absurd, innit?
At any rate, this provides the printed evidence that it is sometimes very, very difficult to be charitable to some people.
