The Borowitz Report is a humor column for the New Yorker, yes.

Between this and the Bachmann article about felafels, it's become really hard to tell anymore.

I am going to add that I found this funny:

Reportedly, Mr. Romney's practice debates have gone worse than expected, with the former Massachusetts governor getting trounced by a variety of opponents, including the Apple personal assistant Siri.

"This reminds me of the time the weekend cook asked if I wanted my Faberge Eggs scrambled or over easy! Right? Am I right, folks? Right? Because weekEND servants sometimes don't know which pantry has the brunch silver, right?? RIGHT??"

If we were going to have a complete joke as a candidate, we couldn't have done funnier than

Another story of his "Romney in Final Push to Alienate Remaining Voters"

Very funny stuff. The only real question is which Fark account is his.

The entire GOP strategy in one simple package. It has all the elements. 

Zinger. Check
Doubling down. Check.
Fried chicken. Check.
Your bacon between two meat buns. Check.
Prepared by women in a kitchen. Check.

Yes, I liked that second one a lot:

"We really got the ball rolling at the Olympics," Mr. Rhoades said. "I seriously doubted that Mitt could turn a visit to London into a show of international ineptitude, but he was like, 'Matt, trust me-I can do this.' "

You libs won't be so snarky when Romney wipes the floor with Obama and the smirk off your faces during the debates. Romney is already ahead in the polls, the debates will seal his victory.

That's pretty good. I can only hope you are honestly channeling them; I want these people humbled. They won't be, of course. They have their denial all set up in advance. But one can hope.
 
2012-10-01 02:19:42 PM
I can't wait for Romney to lay into his, "Obama has ruined the economy" bit and then Obama comes back with, "Well, there you go again."

Romney's own people seem to be bigger enemies to his campaign than Obama. They're almost bigger enemies to the Romney campaign than Romney.

Yes, but only by an RCH.

Who f*cking knows at this point. The gop has been so insane that almost everything that looks like satire can actually be what they really did.

The only obvious satire line at this point is: 'GOP decides they want to win, now appealing to moderates/center.'

Americans will get to hear Obama sans teleprompter. It should be uh quite uh interesting uhhhhhhhhh.....

Gay Mexican basketball players, who like to do a little Juan-on-Juan?

"See it's funny because "Juan" is a male Hispanic name that sounds kind of like "one," and one-on-one is a variation on basketball that can be played with only two people. The people watching the debate will find that humorous, correct?"

I can't wait for all the "tell-all' interviews from his handlers to come out after the election. Much finger pointing to be had.
