Satire Is The Only Truth

Naturally it’s from The Onion: Area Man Passionate Defender Of What He Imagines Constitution To Be

ESCONDIDO, CA—Spurred by an administration he believes to be guilty of numerous transgressions, self-described American patriot Kyle Mortensen, 47, is a vehement defender of ideas he seems to think are enshrined in the U.S. Constitution and principles that brave men have fought and died for solely in his head.

“Our very way of life is under siege,” said Mortensen, whose understanding of the Constitution derives not from a close reading of the document but from talk-show pundits, books by television personalities, and the limitless expanse of his own colorful imagination. “It’s time for true Americans to stand up and protect the values that make us who we are.”

If you have lived in SoCal, the Escondido dateline isn’t accidental, i.e. this describes a significant portion of the population of the town. It may be caused by the exhaust fumes from I-15.

Oh my, The Onion does it again. I think The Onion and The Daily Show are the only peddlers in actual truth in today’s print and tv media. What does that say about the state of the rest of the media, that two satirical outlets are the best media outlets you can turn to in order to get truth rather than he-said she-said stenography?!

The M$M is so totally worthless as to be irrelevant unless you are looking for a missing blond, and or a “child at risk”. They are so predicable that they get scammed all the time.

The British site Newsbiscuit had a bit on the need to have a professional glamor portrait available at all times for the media in case you are mashed by a truck or kidnapped by terrorists, to avoid the embarrassment of having an out of focus vacation shot appear in your local paper.

The better the picture, the more media attention you’ll get.
