Satire and reality

Satirist Andy Borowitz on the Vice Presidential debate:

In a precedent-setting case of corporate involvement in a nationally televised political debate, Mad LibsTM revealed tonight that it had sponsored Gov. Sarah Palin’s answers in her vice-presidential face-off with Delaware senator Joseph Biden.

In exchange for the exclusive sponsorship, Mad LibsTM agreed to provide Gov. Palin with a special Mad LibsTM edition composed entirely of answers to vice-presidential debate questions.

“We are happy as a [kind of shellfish] to have sponsored Governor Palin’s [synonym for idiotic] answers, which showed the American people just how [synonym for gigantic] a [type of ape] she is,” said Mad LibsTM spokesperson Carol Foyler.

While Mad LibsTM refused to reveal the entire collection of answers they provided to Gov. Palin, they did offer one example: “I believe that if [synonym for evildoers] were found to be hiding in [name of country], America should take [synonym for strong] action to make certain that they don’t [synonym for blow up] us.”

Having watched Gov. Palin’s performance in the debate, Republican presidential nominee John McCain said, “I’m totally [synonym for having had sexual intercourse].”
