I suspect Jennifer Rubin was envious of all the attention the artist Jon McNaughton was getting, and used Tom Cotton as her living canvas. I suspect Jennifer helped author the letter forty-seven Senators signed and sent to the leaders of Iran . Tom did not receive one vote from one American for the office of the President of United States, yet, he acts like he was put in the Great White House by truly loyal Americans, or, he has taken it back from the enemy in a military manner. This is a coup, of sorts, But, what it truly is, is White Tea Party Parody.
Knowing it is not a real grassroots organization ( it was hatched by Dick Army and Freedom-works funded by the Koch brothers) these Faux Patriots are stuck in a reality they can not grasp. Instead of reading Aristotle, they listen to evangelical ministers fry up a new batch of hokey-pokey like scrambled eggs. Not able to rest back any semblance of reality from these religious leaders, what is left of Republican Secular Rule must cow-tow to the declaration, that Jesus Christ has recently taken charge of America. This is High Parody! If Charlie Chaplin was alive, he would be all over it – again!
As the sole reporter for my newspaper, there is no one in the newsroom but me. Sometime I feel crazy after I write something. I have depicted Jen and Tom as sophomoric Sim’s characters who are ultimately driven by their libido. They dwell in a World of Simulation and Parody, they forever barred from entering The Door of Reality. Their refusal to accept the truth that Barack Obama is the Legitimate Commander-in-Chief, was laid at the feet of Ayatollah Khamenei. Somehow a Seal of Total Approval will be completed when his eyeballs take it all in. No need to look for the Official Seal.
The Borowitz Report came to my rescue when a parody was produced where Boehner invites Obama’s school mate to speak before Congress, and rag on his ass! Poof! The Harvard Law Student who was assigned to a burial detail while in the service, is now a thespian in a bad high school play, even a musical! Oh, and her come Judea Jen on her tippy-toes wearing a tutu sent to her by her Godfather, Netanyahu.
Thanks Borowitz, for making the fog go away.
In his 1960 anthology of parody from the 14th through 20th centuries, critic Dwight Macdonald offered the general definition “Parody is making a new wine that tastes like the old but has a slightly lethal effect.”
According to Aristotle (Poetics, ii. 5), Hegemon of Thasos was the inventor of a kind of parody; by slightly altering the wording in well-known poems he transformed the sublime into the ridiculous. In ancient Greek literature, a parodia was a narrative poem imitating the style and prosody of epics “but treating light, satirical or mock-heroic subjects
WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—House Speaker John Boehner has scheduled a joint session of Congress in April to hear an address by Kevin Laggett, a man who is on record as having hated President Obama in high school.
Boehner, who personally extended the invitation to Laggett, said that he did not consult with the President before contacting his high-school nemesis.
“This has nothing to do with the President,” Boehner said. “Many of us in Congress are very interested in what Mr. Laggett has to say.”
According to a source who attended high school with both men, Laggett’s antipathy for the President began when Obama was chosen over him for the post of sports editor on the school newspaper. “Kevin has totally despised him ever since,” the source said.
Reached in Honolulu, where he works as an assistant manager at Applebee’s, Laggett said that his speech to Congress would steer clear of personal issues between him and Obama.
“I’m going to leave that stuff at the door,” he said. “I’m just going to talk about the job he’s doing as President, which he’s screwing up pretty bad, in my opinion.”
At the White House, the President responded testily when asked if he intended to watch Laggett’s speech. “Kevin is a tool,” he said.
