No Joke

I just wanted tell you how much I enjoyed your humor issue of February 19. I practically rolled on the floor as I read about a bona fide right-wing Republican suing Lois Capps for defamation of character. That is somewhat akin to Torquemada characterizing critics as guilty of religious bias. I also don’t approve of what the Capps team did, glad though I am to see her in D.C. again.

Then there was that parody in which you hilariously claimed that James Inhofe, a rabid climate change denier, ended up as chair of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee. Even the terminally cynical Republican Senate leadership wouldn’t go that far. It was a joke, right?
