I recently alluded to a truly vile attempt at a political parody which made light of the plight of Ali Ismaeel Abbas, the Iraq boy who lost both arms during the war in Iraq. I originally learned of this sick “humor” through Howard Owens, but felt it needed broader exposure. So I tattled and emailed Charles Johnson of Little Green Footballs, who posted it immediately. Long story short: LGF gets a lot of readers, so these would-be “parodists” have gotten a lot of other-than-positive attention, and something good finally came of it.
Speaking of satire, I’m cautiously optimistic that whoever kidnapped the staff at The Onion at the beginning of the war must have have finally let them go. This article about Saddam’s accomplishments and this one on a man supporting most of the troops are as good as anything they’ve put out over the years. I will never badmouth The Onion again (assuming, of course, that I never feel like badmouthing them again, which probably won’t happen, but might…).
