We need a satire tag, even if the satire isn't that funny.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky) agreed with his fellow G.O.P. leaders' words of caution, adding, "Fortunately, none of my children want to talk to me."


This is unsurprising since young turtles are rarely cared for by adults once they're hatched.

It's not satire...  it's in The New Yorker, they don't do satire.


The Borowitz Report is most definitely satire.

That is Eric Cantor distilled down into like, a sentence. It really gets to the heart of his douchebagginess.

Hey, they love their kids just like you do. They'll often conveniently backpedal when their daughter needs an abortion or their kid is gay ala Cheney. They aren't monsters, discounting  psychopaths like Bachmann and such or course.

First sign of a cult: Separate your minions away from friends and family who might be inclined to rescue them, then imbue them with a with-us-or-against-us mentality.

it certainly is believable.

coco ebert: That was pretty funny for a Borowitz piece.

Agreed. He'shiat and miss for me mostly and that was a definite hit.


Fark filter pwnage!! "He'shiat"

There's a word that ought to exist if it doesn't. Anyone read Hebrew or Arabic here?

Is that satire? I can't tell by the tone of your voice.

Satire ought to be banned with regards to the GOP. Who the hell can really tell the difference?


The Borowitz Report is, and always has been satire. You can't accuse him of being an Onion knock-off either, they both started at about the same time.

It's somewhat sad that the only thing that really tipped me off that this wasn't legit was the gnawing feeling that Eric Cantor was a bit on the young side to have adult children.

My mom sent this to me this morning. Gotta say, I kinda wish more Rs would learn to STFU with their family about politics...

/No, Grandma, depression does not typically manifest as bisexuality or conversion to Paganism, that is not how biology or life choices work.
