From Popping Culture's "Pranks of Questionable Taste" Desk

You know, I'm just sure I hold political views fairly opposite of whoever played this prank.

Nevertheless, I have to give props for the effort. Not an easy stunt to pull off, and I gotta admit it made me chuckle for a second. Um, until I was outraged, of course. Sort of shows how political discourse has been replaced by venom these days.

***UPDATE: I've received a few emails about this. Apparently, despite my own words, a few folks out there think that by drawing attention to something, I am endorsing it. My thought-out, reasoned response is this: Read my words. Lighten up. That is all.***

You don't have to like everything. You just have to, for some reason, feel compelled to comment on every single thing.

I thought I made it clear from the top that I didn't think it was in good taste. The point is that folks are willing to go a LONG way in today's political world to make a tasteless point, and ya gotta respect the effort. And even the tasteless can display a sense of humor.

Yeah, I admit I laughed.

What I'm trying to figure out is whether it's just a sick joke or if it's political commentary, and what exactly the commentary is.

I didn't find this funny. I mean, it wasn't, you know, ha ha! funny.

They should leave humor to the professionals.
