Karl Rove Did It (and the essence of anti-Americanism)

Someone recently said to me:

Lesson...Satire needs to have some basis in truth to work. Blame Bush goes nowhere.


Moscow News: Russian Villagers Blame U.S. as Lake Disappears

A Russian village was left baffled Thursday after its lake disappeared overnight, Reuters reported Friday. Though there is probably a perfectly natural explanation, some of the villagers were quick to blame the disaster on the United States.

NTV television showed pictures of a giant muddy hole bathed in summer sun, while fishermen from the village of Bolotnikovo near Nizhny Novgorod looked on disconsolately.

"It is very dangerous. If a person had been in this disaster, he would have had almost no chance of survival. The trees flew downwards, under the ground," said Dmitry Zaitsev, a local Emergencies Ministry official interviewed by the channel.

Officials in Nizhegorodskaya region, on the Volga river east of Moscow, said water in the lake might have been sucked down into an underground water-course or cave system, but some villagers had more sinister explanations.

"I am thinking, well, America has finally got to us," said one old woman, as she sat on the ground outside her house.

The problem with Blame Bush, if any, is that it does not paint an exaggerated enough caricature of a lefty anti-American. Its attempt at satire is too close to the truth.

The actual quote is: "'I am thinking, well, America has finally got to us,' said one old woman, as she sat on the ground outside her house."

Russian woman.... Old.... Cold war....

Congratulations! You just showed that it is plausible that the Sovjets had their own Joseph Mccarthy in 50's and 60's! ;)

Good luck with your site, i enjoy reading it.
