There are three levels of satire.
The lowest level is mere sarcasm, in which you say something absurd that you don’t mean, and in such a way that everyone knows you don’t mean it. To rise to actual satire, you must say something absurd that you don’t mean, and in such a way that your audience thinks you might just mean it. Great satire is saying something absurd that you don’t mean, and in such a way that your audience thinks they might just think that your absurdity a great idea.
The Wilderness has published an over-the-top and I think satirical case for Joe Biden as the Democratic nominee. But like any good satire, there’s more than a hint of truth in it:
If Biden, with the guidance of Obama and Jarrett, can take off the toon mitts against Hillary, the fight won’t even be close. Biden has spent seven long years learning the ways of the master. Hillary’s war chest is offset by Biden’s ability to use AF2 whenever he needs it, and his Secret Service entourage will more closely resemble the ’85 Bears than Hillary’s Visiting Angel detail. Biden will deploy his bellowing-clown debate tactics against a dour old woman flop-sweating over her desperate last chance for relevance, and then when the time is right, he’ll descend in for the kill by laying blame for the September 11th Benghazi attacks squarely at her feet (conveniently exonerating Barack Obama’s legacy in one fell swoop as an added bonus). Hillary can grin through her fangs, listing off how many miles she’s traveled as Secretary of State, but Biden can end her campaign with one devastating statement:
“In fact Mrs. Clinton, on the night of September 11th as our Embassy was under attack, you assured me and the President that you had the situation under control and that our Ambassador was safe.” Checkmate: nomination Biden.
Hardly anybody cares about Benghazi, because the Complicit Media has allowed and encouraged them not to care about Benghazi. Biden could put it right back on the map — and into Grandma Hillary’s lap, where it belongs.
Hillary, of course, belongs in jail.
