It gets more difficult every day to satirize the repugs, because they passed self-parody way back with Mark Foley. But Thers at Firedoglake throws his back into it, and comes up with a winner.
THE PLAIN PEOPLE OF WINGNUTTIA: Our candidate for president in 2012 will be a baked potato.
TEH LIBERALS: ...?
TPPoW: You heard us! We see the danger facing us in the Obama presidency as so powerful and so imminent that we demand a candidate who wants to devote time and speeches to fighting it in a very public way. That candidate is a baked potato. In fact, this baked potato right over here. ------>
TL: You're nominating a baked potato? What the hell are you talking about?
TPPoW: Ha! We knew that would drive you libtards crazy! Clearly, this potato has earned the eternal enmity of the liberal elite for the affront of who it is: a working-class, pro-life vegetable with decidedly red-state mores. Unlike you out-of-touch coastal elites with your pommes frites, the baked potato is from the real America -- these small towns that we get to visit, these wonderful little pockets of what we call the real America, the hard working very patriotic, um, very, um, pro-America areas of this great nation.
TL: Are you on drugs? Who the hell is going to vote for a potato?
It gets even better. Read the whole thing.
