Two Jokes, and Two Parodies

Here are two political jokes: Michelle Bachmann and Sarah Palin. Now here are two jokes about them:

From the Freewood Press:

Michele Bachmann Wants to Ban Halloween Stating, “Sucking on Satan’s Candy Sacks Leads to Liberalism”

Michele Bachmann, Republican Congressional Representative to Minnesota and founder of the Tea Party Caucus, is at it again. She is calling for a ban on Halloween, stating, “This holiday is based in Satanism. It’s a Pagan ritual to worship Satan and call him forth to the earth and the liberal elites have added socialism to it. We are in the end days and we must purify our nation if we are to be welcomed into the kingdom of God.”

From the Daily Currant:

Sarah Palin claimed today that Jesus Christ celebrated Easter during his time on Earth.

In an interview with Fox and Friends this morning, the former Alaska governor promoted her new book about the left’s “war on Christmas” and argued that all Christian holidays should return to the traditional versions practiced by Jesus.

“It makes me so gosh darn angry,” Palin explained. “The liberal left in this country has targeted Christian holidays and is trying to secularize them right out of existence.

“When Jesus celebrated Easter with his disciples there were no Easter bunnies or egg hunts. There were no Easter sales at department stores or parades in the street. Easter was a special time of prayer and Christian activism.

Both of these articles are from parody sites. But if I put them up here in a link list along side Rick Santorum claiming that Satan controls the film industry or Cindy Jacobs babbling about a six-year-old’s prayer that stopped an assassination attempt, or Kevin Swanson saying something profoundly silly about girl scout cookies and lesbians, is there any way you could spot the parody?

    “you could spot the parody?”
    Not me. It was the first thing I thought – beware of Poe.
    Frankly, if Halloween and Easter bunnies weren’t so popular in the USA I easily can imagine them campaigning against them.

    “The liberal left in this country has targeted Christian holidays and is trying to secularize them right out of existence.”

    Palin would have never been able to utter a coherent sentence like that; and then the word “secularize”. Impossible.
