Ah, satire

Life lesson for everyone: Your opposition/enemy is not just wrong but also inane. What do you do? You could refute them with facts and figures. But it’s always more fun to choose satire and show them up as the absurd dunderheads they are. Example: Last night’s episode of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, in which Stephen Colbert argued that in the war on terror, everyone should have access to powerful guns and ammo, saying, "There’s evidence that it works. Look at Iraq. Everybody there has assault weapons and they’ve been successful in holding off a much more powerful occupying force. I think that’s a model we can all learn from!"
