Today in “Ugh”

This gets at a larger question, though. If you look through this as a political junkie, the satire is pretty evident. You know that there are people who think that Michelle is a radical whitey-hater, and those who think Obama a flag-burning Muslim, and you know that those people are ludicrous. But for the average person, it’s massively offensive. Even if it was intended in jest, it gets to enough of the latter group to make intent irrelevant.
