Why does The Onion hate America?

I guess we'll have to add them to the list of deranged, right-wing teabaggers full of poutrage because Obama uses a TELEPROMPTER!! OH, NOES!!eleven!!1

Well done, Onion.

I knew he used a teleprompter 24x7, but this is ridiculous. He can't speak to his wife or daughters without one in the dining room?

No...the Onion is humor. The whiny teabaggers are not. At least not intentionally.

I could use a teleprompter during reunions with my Ulster relatives.

This^^^

The onion hits all sides, and does it consistently well.

"He had the staff put a long angry rant into the teleprompter so he could scream it at them."

That was funny.
 
2009-11-17 04:07:55 AM  
I enjoyed that. I like the part where he had his writers write a angry rant for him to yell at them for a mistake they made.

Not a classic but still good.

I viewed it more as making fun of everyone.

naw, I'm a dem and I thought that was some funny shiat. I'm sure Obama would laugh at that stuff. The manic/depressive vid was even better:

Bipolar Obama lol (new window)
 
2009-11-17 04:19:37 AM  
I laughed out loud at the line about Biden writing his remarks on his arm.

'


No. I don't realize that.


The video was ridiculing B. Hussein Obama's fake, media-crafted persona and the fact that the 'community organizer' has an army of doe-eyed followers and smart, liberal handlers helping him make it all up as he goes along.

Obama's a pathetic, cardboard cut-out of some mythical, liberal hero that the media needed to create and his teleprompter 'speeches' are just android tape-recordings of the best lines from Bill Ayers, Saul Alinsky and Karl Marx.


/it's all plastic, fall-apart crap and the Onion rightly mocks it

Just call him a "ni--er" and be done with it. At least you'd be honest for a change.

Alright, out yourself, whose alt are you?
 
2009-11-17 04:30:58 AM  
So... the Onion makes fun of Obama.

Liberals get a chuckle out of it, don't have much of a problem.

Right-wingers masturbate furiously over anyone "attacking The One" and see it as some sort of farked up vindication, with the obligatory, "Guess the liberals will have to start ignoring THESE guys, too!" bullshiat.

Right. Just checking.

The Onion has rocked for a long time. Let's not forget this (which was downright prophetic) from 2001, or my personal favorite, this (new windows) from 1998.

It seems like The Onion is the only source that's capable of actually being funny when they make jokes about Obama.

/really wish Chappelle was still on the air
 
2009-11-17 04:52:57 AM  
Why do they have to do this video shiat? What happened to the good old fashioned fake news article?
 
2009-11-17 05:02:14 AM  
See conservatives...THIS is funny.



Take notes guys. Take notes.

I love the fake news video shiat. The articles are great, but the cast they have is just fantastic. The old guy is perfect. I like the graphics too, but that's neither here nor there.

/Biden writing on his arm in marker LOL.

I had not seen the first this, but now I crying and laughing. More crying than laughing, okay more crying.
Oh, Oniondamus, I can not see through my tears for the second.

Project much?

The irony here is that Glenn Beck is everything the "Onion" thinks they are: funny, cutting edge, unafraid, and in the arena ready to mix it up.

Hatred of Glenn Beck: It's come to this.

Most of the time I enjoy what The Onion has to offer. Not so much this time.

The Onion on Glenn Beck: "Disgusting! Too far! Unfunny! Degenerates! HATE CRIME!!!"

/Yes, yes, we know you're an "Independent."

how fresh, another teleprompter joke.
and it only took them a year to come up with it. sharp minds over at the onion.

cfish78: how fresh, another teleprompter joke.

Unknown to the the witty and original @cfish78, the Onion were observing the fact that conservatives had wasted millions of man-hours falsely claiming that Obama could not speak unless he had a telepromptor.
I feel stupid saying this.
Okay, cfish68 or whatever and alostpacket, I don't care if the Onion made you cry. I refuse to plat the crying game with you sexually ambiguous tadpoles.
Go suck an onion.

Sgt Otter: Most of the criticisms in those links are predictable Fan Boy nonsense (it's funny until you bring somebody I like into it). This link:

Most of the time I enjoy what The Onion has to offer. Not so much this time.

The author came soooo close to "getting it" when he wrote: I suppose if one views the piece as mocking the unbridled hate some people have for Beck it could be seen as funny

but then lost it with: but I don't think that's the interpretation that was intended.

Sorry, you were right the first time. That's exactly what the Onion does, it doesn't mock people or things specifically, it mocks the mass hysteria of people and things- which makes it funny.

At least, that's the way I see it.
 
2009-11-17 06:25:27 AM  
It's not usually as funny when it's your guy getting skewered. When you can laugh even though it is your guy, you know it's good.

It's gotten to the point where it may be necessary to ignore people who constantly reply to trolls. I'm guessing it's often alts that they use to get around people's ignore filters.

Bocanegra: WFern: Just call him a "ni--er" and be done with it. At least you'd be honest for a change.

If there was a calculation done between how many people took Bocanegra seriously, and how many took Jimmy Carter seriously, I can personally attest that one vote would go to J.C.
I have heard there are many more that agree with me.
Search Amazon for J.C. and Bocanegra and Jimmy Carter wins hands down.
Being influential among 17 farkers does not equal the prestige a popular ex-president has. What I am sayin is, your statement is false. It is a fact.

I also liked the Teleprompter being sent alone on low-priority diplomatic missions.

Etc.

"Michelle, I love you?"
"Dammit! Who typed a question mark on the Teleprompter?"

But really, I'd have to say my favorite article was this one (new window)...
