Go ahead and fuckin laugh. I have fuckin egg on my face.

BUT keep in mind Bachmann is going to lead to someone's death if she isn't careful. Onion did a bad joke on that one.

12. DING DING DING! Justice wanted, you're our grand prize winner!

...(L)et's face it -- Bachmann has done some dangerous things lately, and I wouldn't put it past her to say something like this...Bachmann is going to lead to someone's death if she isn't careful...

Yeah, well, that's how The Onion operates -- always baking a grain of truth within their satire.

Sometimes they do it so well that legitimate journalistic entities have mistaken their stories for truth -- up to and including the New York Times. But as you've demonstrated, the Onion accomplished its mission of exposing the bigger truth of Bachmann's ignorant, insane, potentially lethal rantings.

15. Well it's easy to believe Bachmann would say something like this.

She was just a tad shy of calling, Huma Abedin a terrorist. I think she does think this way. She has demonstrated it again and again. Which is why I can't rec this thread. It is too painfully close to the truth to be funny. My jaw dropped when I read that. It took me reading the whole thing and seeing it was from the Onion to figure out it was supposed to be parody. But, again it's too close to what she has actually said in the past and to close to what she seems to believe for it to be actually funny.

2. ...and jingo was her name, oh...

And I realize this was the Onion, but still - sometimes it's just too plausible for real.

5. 'Onion' satire pieces do NOT belong in Good Reads. GR is for editorials, etc.


Please self-delete and repost in General Discussion.

Thank you.

14. Agreed

 

But, sadly, I can imagine one of your wingnuts actually saying that. And meaning it.

7. Even though most people know the Onion is a satirical website - Not everybody does ....

I suppose a 'sarcasm' tag would ruin the joke ....

10. my heart goes out to your roomate and to you. The Onion made a HUGE mistake with this one

Not with this event and Not with Bachmann--who seems to be the poster girl for rude and hate speech lately.

11. I thought this was real...

til I saw the Onion link. I got an uneasy feeling from reading the
Onion sometime during the reign of Commander Chickenhawk W. Awol, because
reality had become more ridiculous than satire.

17. How sad

That I believed it until I saw the URL. I'm not going to . Nope! It's something she WOULD say - and we all know it here at DU.
