The Onion's War to the White House

The Onion's War to the White House

My obsession with Stephen Colbert has taught me that satire offers an endless supply of insight into our political system. The Onion has put together amusing, and spot-on, candidate profiles for the 2008 presidential election, complete with candidate positions on the issues.



Where does Obama stand on health care? —"Promises to reduce cost of health care by demanding private insurance companies stop liking astronomical profits." Check out all the candidates' pages. The good people at the Onion even have an archive of all the drop outs!

Those are great! The front page story on this week's Onion is "Black Guy Asks Nation for Change." That's another funny one!

LOVE IT! Had heard of them years ago but never checked out the website. I'm totally hooked. Our local Aussie version - or closest to it - is The Chasers: http://www.chaser.com.au/. Hooray for satire!

I like John Edwards' 'notable ding sound when he smiles' and it looks like they used his high school yearbook picture!
