The Onion is known for satire so sharp that it fools even smarter-than-thou liberals. Hopefully no one falls for this “joke,” published to coincide with Sen. McCain’s address to the RNC, which fell flat with anyone with a bit of class left.

Seriously, not funny — especially when the retweets strip out the source of the “humor.”

    So you guys don’t like this but were OK with the “story” about Republicans beating a gay marine onstage? The Onion has lost a once loyal follower after all of this.

      I don’t think it was mentioned here. One thing I do have to say though about that gay marine story: one of my extreme moonbat SWPL “friends” on facebook actually thought it was totally over the line.

        I guess that was my point: The Onion has had a story about gay prostitutes gearing up for closeted Republicans– semi-amusing, but pretty predictable; they had a story about Republicans building a levee out of the bodies of poor people– poor taste, and not very funny; 1,400 things that should “never be said anywhere” will be said at the RNC; gay marine beating; now McCain blowing his own head off.

        I understand that the “comedic” news media also leans left, but Jon Stewart and The Onion are really throwing even feigned objectivity, fairness and now decency to the wind.

      Who told you we were okay with it? Don’t assume things. It’s assinine.
      I never heard of the gay marine one. No that was not all right either. Obviously.

        Calm down… I figured you “followed” The Onion just like I do; not an asinine assumption to make, since you mentioned this story, and Twitchy seemingly follows it all. I’m shocked that you heard it second-hand.

    Suicide is nothing to joke about. I’m sure they’d agree with me if this were a conservative blog joking about a LGBT person or a Dem committing suicide.

      Being Libs, they’re not that self aware. They only see things in their own little bubble. Oh well… you can lead a horse to water…
