We've all had this experience: your fellow man says something of such monumental stupidity that you are literally struck dumb. Was that guy serious, or was that a joke?
I've had been a lot of those moments recently, thanks to the Bush administration and the guys at Fox News. I'd like to slap them all upside the head for being so idiotic, but Hunter of the Daily Kos has a better idea: parody.

Things I have learned during this campaign season:
- In a race that includes a former First Lady of the United States and a multimillionaire Republican senator rumored to share up to eight residences with his wife, the black guy from Chicago is unforgivably elitist.
- Racism in America is caused primarily by black Chicago preachers.
- The guy who keeps getting confused over the relationship between Iraq, Iran, and al Qaeda is the foreign policy expert.
- The guy who goes to campaign stops on his wife's private jet aircraft is the most down-to-earth.
- The guy who changed his stance on tax cuts, Roe v. Wade, immigration, gun control, the confederate flag, torture, public financing, and his own anti-earmark rhetoric is the "straight talker".
- People in the heartland don't like it when you call them bitter, but they do like it when you explain to them that they're too dumb to understand issues more important than whether or not they like to be called bitter.
- Bill Kristol, Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly, Karl Rove, Maureen Dowd, David Brooks, David Broder, Charles Krauthammer and Bob Novak are all intensely interested in giving advice to the Democratic candidates because they just want to be helpful.
