Another Conservative who doesn’t get ‘Satire’

Besides David Frum being a total POS, now he claims sarcasm and satire have no place in the presidential race. Who made him joke God? What is it with conservatives and satire? He thinks it is okay to call people running for president terrorists, but not okay to crack jokes about Republicans.

Rachel Maddow schools him on satire.

Frum, who unbelievably has the nerve to sit in judgment of anyone when his carefully crafted propaganda led us into an unnecessary war, employs the Republican tried and true method of creating false equivalencies to defend the indefensible tactics of the McCain campaign. And his target isn’t the expected Barack Obama or even Bill Clinton, but Rachel Maddow herself.

That’s right. For Frum — who by the way, has only a glancing relationship with facts — has the bad manners in addition to flawed thought process to tell Maddow that using snark and humor in her news show brings down the national dialogue just as much as McCain and Palin’s race baiting and fear mongering.
