I love the Onion!!

Didn't Chuck Norris say something about 1000 years of darkness?


Obama: 'Help Us Destroy Jesus And Start A New Age Of Liberal Darkness' | The Onion - America's Finest News Source


“My fellow Americans and godless infidels, I command you to join me as we cast an endless pall of far-left evil across the hills and valleys of our nation!” Obama bellowed from the stage, as thousands in attendance moaned in compliance and gyrated their hips and groins in a lascivious dance. “Together, as a barbarian people forged by the wicked flames of irreligiosity and united by visions of a liberal dystopia, we will rise up as one to scorch the earth with boundless amorality.”

Oh, man, now you've done it. I know of at least a few right wingers here on C-D who continually fall for these satire pieces. No doubt several of them will start quoting this as "fact" in other threads all over the site. Of course, these are the same posters who think Chuck Norris is a credible source for ANYTHING, so that tells you all you need to know about them.

Are you aware that The Onion is a humor publication and that this article is a satire on the unhinged beliefs of the extreme right wing?

Well aware. Are you aware that I was waiting, with baited breath, for someone to come here and A. think this was serious, and B. think I, or anyone rational, could think this was serious.

Thank you for satisfying me so early on.

That one always amuses me, too stupid to know she never said that, it was actually Tina Fey on SNL who said it.


Palin on her insight into Russian Politics - YouTube

"Yes. Russia and Alaska are divided by the Bering Strait, which is about 55 miles at its narrowest point. In the middle of the Bering Strait are two small, sparsely populated islands: Big Diomede, which sits in Russian territory, and Little Diomede, which is part of the United States. At their closest, these two islands are a little less than two and a half miles apart, which means that, on a clear day, you can definitely see one from the other. The Diomede Islands are often blanketed by persistent fog, which makes visibility difficult. On a clear day, though, a person standing at sea level can see a little less than three miles across the ocean. You can see farther if you go higher—at the highest altitude on Little Diomede (919 feet), you can see for about 37 miles. (Between mid-December and mid-June, when the water between the two islands freezes, an intrepid explorer can just walk from one to the other.)"

"You can also see Russia from other points in Alaska. According to a New York Times article written in the waning years of the Cold War (when the Alaska-Siberia border was known as the "Ice Curtain"), if you stand on high ground on the tip of St. Lawrence Island—a larger Alaskan island in the Bering Sea, southwest of the Diomedes—you can see the Russian mainland, about 37 miles away. The same article claims that you can see Russia from the Tin City Air Force facility at Cape Prince of Wales, which is the westernmost point of the mainland Americas.The station chief at Tin City confirms that, for roughly half the year, you can see Siberian mountain ranges from the highest part of the facility."

Can you really see Russia from Alaska? - Slate Magazine

But this was meant to be facetious, not a serious debate.
