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.
As a female Republican candidate with extreme, far right-wing views and a love for guns, Iowa's U.S. Senate hopeful Joni Ernst is a lot like Sarah Palin or Michele Bachmann.
Income inequality is killing the economy. Retailers, bankers and Democrats agree on that. Really. It's only Republicans who continue to insist that income inequality is great.
Ironically, Speaker Boehner resorted to the American justice system to sue President Obama, the very system he has worked relentlessly to underfund for indigents. Instead of suing Obama, he should start fixing the system he and his colleagues broke.
Personally, I don't believe my tax dollars should be used to pay the salary of someone who wants to convince the world that my ultimate desire is to be able to legally molest children.
It is nothing short of disgusting that the self-proclaimed "greatest country on earth" is engaged in a vehement discussion on minimum wages.
While many of us assumed and understood this fabricated Minnesota politician to be a joke, it seems large swathes of the population truly believed "Michele Bachmann" to be a bona fide person.

First, the group American Atheists announced that it would be sponsoring a booth at the conference, with the goal of bringing conservative nonbelievers "out of the closet." The religious right was not pleased.
What seems to upset Bachmann is that America is waking up to the fact that a culture which used to dominate, the one where it's cool to discriminate against gays and pretend the Jim Crow south was fun and make racist jokes is losing ground.
Obama's State of the Union address gave conservatives a lot of opportunities to run their crazy flags up the proverbial vaginal probe this week.
Say what you want about 2013. But before you dismiss it, cranky style, for being as lousy as any other year you didn't get everything you wanted from Santa, try to remember the few good things that happened in the last twelve months.
