The Corndog Cometh
Somehow, from some other blog, I managed to open the NRO page in a new window. I was not finished reading the other blog, so clicked the other blog's window to bring it back on top and kept reading. When finished, I closed that window... and wondered, "Why am I looking at the National Review Online's page?" After spending several minutes scanning several of the articles looking for the one that the blog I came from must have linked to, I realized: "Hold it, this isn't the National Review Online, this is a PARODY of the National Review Online!"
I guess that just goes to show that parodying the National Review Online is a redundant task. I mean, how could you tell the difference between the parody and the real thing, anyhow?

Scott McClellan is close to self parody these days.

Parody died for me when I saw The Onion's headline for Shrub's first inaguration: "Our national nightmare of peace & prosperity is over". It went on to report about Shrub's defecit spending, & perpetual warfare. I had chills reading it. Normally The Onion is funny satire. Two years later, the headline was a blurb on page A17 in any newspaper.
