God Bless The Onion.
What finer publication could there be to explain the "events" of last week?
This sums it all up. I won't spoil it for you, except for this part:
"Our society is falling apart—our treasured values are under attack by terrorists," said Ellen Blaine of Givens, OH, a tiny rural farming community as likely to be attacked by terrorists as it is to be hit by a meteor. "We need someone with old-time morals in the White House. I may not have much of anything in this world, but at least I have my family."
I'd be laughing a lot harder if part of me didn't think that this wasn't made up.
