I love The Onion! I went to college in Madison, Wisconsin the birthplace of that great satire paper, so I may be a little biased as to defending them,
but I think you're missing the point of the piece here.
I think, after watching it, that it was not at all to keep the American people from thinking but instead to poke fun at how absurd it is to call all
people against President Obama racists. Notice how the "manefesto" in the piece was postmarked to MSNBC, the network that has been calling so many
Satire I believe is a great way to start people thinking about politics, just look at how well it worked for people like Voltaire!
