DU jumps the shark
Democratic Underground can no longer be parodied. They've reached that level where a joke about them can't possibly be funnier than the reality. See, Bush fell off his bike today, ended up with a few cuts and bruises. Now, I knew the DU would be making fun of this and that's ok, because who among you didn't make a joke when Kerry fell off of his bike? But jokes are not enough for this crowd. They shook out their conspiracy banner for this story. I know, you're thinking that nobody could stretch this story into a conspiracy. Oh, but they have. See, Bush didn't really fall of his bike. In fact, he never even rides a bike at all. This is all something cooked up by his staff to make him look tough - or at least like he's smart enough to ride a bicycle, according to DU. And it doesn't stop there. The bruises we'll see on his face? Not from the "bike fall" at all. They're scars from having lesions (or legions as one bright light writes) removed, which were caused by too much sun exposure. Or....Laura hit him. Or....he crashed his truck into a tree (driving while drunk, of course). Or....Jenna threw something at him. They're even starting in with the fact checks. Clowns, I tell you. Crazy, out of touch with reality clowns. Pure comedy, folks. Unintentional, but comedic nonetheless.
