I literally have tears running down my face.

Ya see, there's this pro-life whacko blogger, see, and he reads this article in THE ONION...nah, you guys gotta see it for yourselves...

Go here:

Make sure to peruse the comments, which are rapidly nearing 1,000.

Then goto the main blog page for his responses to the comments, in the July 10 & 11 posts:

And then make sure to read a smattering of the comments on those entries.

"How about a passionate speech on the need to immediately free Prince Albert from the can?"

Priceless! thanks, Rick.

Onion News = America's Finest News Source

CNN = world’s most respected and trusted sources for news and information

Fox News = "Fair and Balanced"

You can see how people might get confused.:D

I wonder if Pete stays up nights hoping some gal will invite him to her monthly march for life? :D

Oh man, somebody immortalized the guy with "Burn Ms. Webber" mugs and T’s and stuff.

I can't understand why ole Petey didn't hit the delete button long ago.
One of those "Any attention is better than none" types maybe.

And this is why the Bush administration is able to get away with the things it does....

Doug, there are really ominous portents out there. This isn't one of them.

The guy has since turned off the comments portion of his blog, which is a shame because there was some really great stuff there. The absolute best part was the self-avowed pro-lifers who called him out for being such an idiot. That had to be the best pile-on I've ever seen. Nearly 1000 people, some quite creative, begged, pleaded, cajoled or ridiculed him. AND THEN, he admits to having been taken in, AND THEN he retracts that admission, AND THEN, he claims his article was satire too and we were too dumb to catch on.

Nope, sorry, this isn't about politics, it's about learning (or not) to remain motionless when you find yourself in quicksand.

Darn, I didn't get to see the comments before he deleted the section, but I would have jumped in to point out this Onion article and watch the quicksand deepen-
