#rsrh QotD, Sing It Brother Ace edition.

Yeah, you’ve probably heard how the not-cool Roger Simon* from Politico decided to write ‘satire’ about Paul Ryan.  Normally, when ‘satire’ is in square quotes like that it’s because the perpetrator of said ‘satire’ is actually trying to for ‘nastiness;’ in this case, of course, it was fairly obviously supposed to be a ‘joke.’ One that could have been seen through by anyone with a triple-digit IQ and the ability to think of their political opponents in anything but the most dismissive of ways.

(pause)

Yeah, half the left-sphere fell for it.  Anyway, AoSHQ notes:

One of the biggest problems with online media is that it provides a potentially massive venue for people who are not funny to try to be funny.

…Which can be hell on earth for those of us who ARE actually funny.  Like, say, Ace – or myself, false modesty be damned.

    Best part is Krugman fell for it.

    That’s why I stick to blog comments. The Open Mike Nite of the internet.

    Try the veal.

    Seems like most on the left never heard of “Too Good To Be True”. They hear something that fits their pre-conceived notions, and they parrot and twit it all over the place.

    And they fell for it. Hook, line, and stinker.

    Lots of people think they can write like Hunter S. Thompson, who was good at that kind of writing; what they don’t take into account was that HST was a really good writer, and generally as a rule they *aren’t*.
