It's Satire, Stupid.

in the latest edition of, "ummm, you realize The Onion is supposed to be funny, right?"...

this idiot decided to take Caroline Weber, author of "I'm Totally Psyched About This Abortion!", to task in his pro-life blog.

only problems... 1) it's from the onion; 2) it's from 1999. a little late on to be jumping on that hate parade.

anyhoo, he got lambasted in the comments to his blog post and decided to respond.

i'm sorry to ruin the end for you, but it's just too good:

Satire? Was the article aiming at the women who have the abortions or the people who believe it is better to save lives than kill them?

Hmm, let's look up the term satire:

“witty language used to convey insults or scorn; "he used sarcasm to upset his opponent"”

Either way, I think I did a good job of turning the “satire” right back at them, don’t you?

oh yes. i do.
