Man, that's good satire

Time to point and laugh.
A Washington Post blogger thought a parody from the Daily Currant was actual news about Sarah Palin.
She got four paragraphs in and this didn't light the warnings.
"As you all know, I’m not a big fan of newspapers, journalists, news anchors and the liberal media in general,” Palin said. “But I met with the folks at Al-JaJizzraa (sic) and they told me they reach millions of devoutly religious people who don’t watch CBS or CNN. That tells me they don’t have a liberal bias.”
It's either well-written satire, or a gullible Postie found something they believed to be true - even if it wasn't.
Iowahawk sums it up best.
Another proud moment for the Washington Post's layers and layers of fact-checkers. Take a bow, Suzi!
