Check it out.

By far the most accurate, concise, and erudite explanation of what Akin INTENDED to say when he misspoke.

Edit - since OP now has content ( don't worry OP I think all of us have had that "Oh no I pushed enter and things on ATS went crazy!" moment...

Yeah I can't comment on anything from the Onion. If I did I'd be no better than the folks who use Breitbart as a source and try to call it news when it's just opinion.

Thank you.

It needed to be clarified for sure. I am happier now I know the true meaning of his words.

As I suspected when I first read about his statement.

With one exception. The Onion is clearly SNL-style satire and also features "articles" about how Suri Cruise is destined to be the Planetary Overlord in latter half of the century. Brietbart actually pitches themselves as "news".

LOL.

Exactly. I just got a kick out of it and thought I would share.

I think the Onion has to be a funny place to work.

Except the Onion is clearly satire... and intended to be satire.

I totally agree - just want to make sure ATS readers who are unfamiliar with any of these sights have a bit of perspective thrown in before they go all nutso!


I've gone nutso over some posts, in the past, before I learned that they were sourced from humor or satire sources.
