Pharyngula

Scariest costume so far today

It belongs to The Poor Man Institute, dressed up as Powerline. It’s terrifyingly detailed and accurate.

    Huh? I don’t see what you’re talking about. Wrong link or something? Or is it gone?

    The blog is costumed. Not the writers, the blog itself.

    Looks pretty plain to me. It must be very subtle?

    I only wish that I could write satire so subtle. Thanks for the link.

    Are you people broken, or what? Look at powerline.com, then look at (and, um, read) PZ’s link (and, um, maybe read what he wrote about it).

    that blog is frickin’ hilarious!

    some of the best sarcasm I’ve seen all week. loved the bit on the Michael J Fox stem cell ads which Limbaugh (perhaps in a drug fueled relapse) attacked:

    SCOTT adds: It should be noted that this isn’t the first time Fox has exaggerated a disease in order to further his career. “Teen Wolf”, anyone? In 1985, out of the clear blue sky, the teenaged Michael J. Fox suddenly began exhibiting symptoms of advanced werewolfism. Sprouting fangs, growing fur, being good at basketball – the whole nine yards. Supposedly this was due to some ancient family curse which had only recently manifested itself – but then, as soon as the movie is over, this whole “curse” is forgotten, without explanation.

    Yes, the links supporting the parody-of-whacked-out-right-wingnut articles are to genuine whacked-out-right-wingnut articles; it’s hard to out-sick the real thing.

    Um, powerlineblog.com, not powerline.com. I had to google for it, should have tried that in the first place I suppose … No wonder the point was lost on people who, like me, have lived happily without even being aware of the existence of powerlineblog.com. I think I shall try to revert to that happy state ASAP.
