The Onion is a publication near and dear to my heart. They so often catch a good zeitgeist of humor in politics and news, but today’s #CongressHostage stunt is about as far from the usual material as to make me wonder who had taken leave of their senses. They started with a faux-Breaking News tweet: “BREAKING: Witnesses reporting screams and gunfire heard inside Capitol building.”
Yeah, it went downhill from there:
For a group that so often manages to walk the line on sensitive issues, to see them stumble so badly and obviously, it’s definitely a disappointment.
