There's a guy on the FReepers (John Semmons) who irregularly posts a satire page. His spoofs are so good that it is difficult to tell them from "real" events. It trips folks up all the time.
This onion piece was meant to be satirical but it is too true to be funny, and too untrue as regards GW (in their lame attempt to be "even-handed") to be credible.
...or maybe I just gotta warped sense of humor
