Satire's Aim Goes Wilde

Satire gets some leeway in political discourse that other forms do not. Wendy Wilde's Tim Pawlenty blowjob comment is clearly not meant seriously and pokes fun at/points out the hypocrisy of something that really deserves to be noted.

That said, I join my colleagues MNCR and MDE in saying that this post is too much. One of the basic ideas of satire is that it's supposed to be subtle, and this is anything but. I go after MDE all the time for saying stuff less stupid and offensive than this, so I'll say to Wendy Wilde: we don't need this kind of stuff in our blogosphere. Believe it or not, MDE isn't the only one who can lower the level of the debate.
