  1. It is so very difficult writing any satire about the absurdities of the US right wing. This is because any sane person sitting down and trying to dream up something wackier than the usual stuff they spout is always likely to be overtaken by an even more lunatic comment issued ‘for real’.

    They are beyond satire.

    1. Poe’s law strikes again!

    2. its almost as bad as writing about conspiracy theorists

    It is so very difficult writing any satire about the absurdities of the US left wing as well. This is because any sane person sitting down and trying to dream up something wackier than the usual stuff the Democrats spout is always likely to be overtaken by an even more lunatic comment issued ‘for real.

    They are really beyond satire.

      Well, the Democrats really don’t produce the idiots espousing the absurdities about gay people and same-sex marriage that have infested republican politics. They use religion as a front to justify their bigotry. Republicans support legislation discriminating against LGBT people, Democrats don’t.

    Now he tells us !!

    Bit late – I don’t think it’ll work at my age, and my mother is eligible for a free bus pass so I don’t think she’s got any milk left ! :D

    Good spoofs are the ones where it takes a while before you realise you’ve been had :)

  4. This is just a testament to the type of people who you get on the internet. On sites like Tumblr and Twitter, it’s countless teenagers with no real world experience not bothering to check sources first. It drives me insane.

    1. It’s not teenagers, but idiots who watch Faux News and believe stories in the Onion are factual.

      1. Haha I was trying to give them credit by attributing it to young and naïve people but I guess you’re right.

  5. Awesome. The Christian right Have been hurting us and our reputations with fiction for years. About time they got a taste of their own medicine. Not that Akin really needs any help.

    So, you didn’t like my comment about the Democrats being beyond satire! What Michael Moore’s defence of the alleged rapist Assange over his possible victims? What about the UK left-wing activist Craig Murray who named one of the alleged victims? What about the Occupy movements notorious acceptance of sexual assaults and their pamphlet urging people not to report such assaults to the police? When a 19-year-old girl was raped at Occupy Cleveland, Occupiers accused her, just like they accuse Assange’s alleged victims, of being a CIA plant thereby giving us another glimpse of the left-wing nut-job rape culture.What about Jesse Jackson’s defence of the convicted rapist Darrell Williams? What about Al Sharpton’s defence of the Dunbar Village rapists? Todd Akin has never spoken at a Republican National Convention but Al Sharpton spoke at the Democratic National Convention in 2004 and Jesse Jackson spoke at there in 1984, 1988 and 2000.

      Michael Moore, who said that Assange’s alleged crime couldn’t possibly be a crime anyway, was a Democrat honoured guest in 2004.What about the Democratic Congressmen David Wu (offences against a teenage girl), Dale Kildee (sexual abuse of a family member), or Alcee Hastings (sued for sexual harassment)? The Democrats have never addressed their rape culture. Is what Todd Akin said actually worse than defending rapists as so many Democrats and left-wingers have done?

      Ask Mary Jo Kopechne who found out the hard way that preserving left-wing males’ reputations means killing a mother and child.

  7. Where is this moron coming from.

    Breast milk can make you straight.

    We were all brought up on breast milk and we still turned out gay. No further proof needed.

    We need a major revolution against religion, all of them.

    1. You do know what ‘spoof’ means, don’t you?

  8. Classic, keep em cumming!
