To counter-act the media's "1% are politically invincible" drone, we constantly have to re-prove to our fellow citizens that the 1% are politically beatable. Hence, the National Day of Gloating is a mitzvah.

When you publish a blog post on The Huffington Post's Comedy section, you assume people will get the obvious: It's meant to be funny, just like a fire truck hurtling down the street is a sign that, well, there's a fire somewhere, right?

While I enjoyed Borowitz' delicious satirical cake, it is ironic but yet a sign of the (political) times, that other Republicans have now stepped forward in the wake of the President's speech on immigration with statements that trounce Borowitz' satire.

No doubt we do have a "liberal media" but it consists mainly of professional comedians. Except for the brilliance cast by a tiny fraction of periodicals, by an edge of the Internet, and by a few TV shows, the liberal media consists largely of jokers who help us to laugh so we won't cry.

The notion that simply acknowledging Jackson's absurd statements lends them credence is a valid one. Granted, her lunacy doesn't deserve any additional attention. However, it's important to note that Jackson is, for better or worse, a public figure with a following.

Four years ago was September 2008. George W. Bush was president and Wall Street giant Lehman Brothers was collapsing. It was a time of fear. It was a time of panic about the future. Recalling that anxiety is unsettling. But it's important for comparison sake.
