The Onion News Network’s recent spoof of Sarah Palin’s potential candidacy for president of the United States is a hilarious example of satire done correctly.
The video, like much of The Onion’s material, features fantastic production values and captures the archetype of American news-network television with uncanny accuracy. The video itself revolves around a fake poll of the public sentiment towards Sarah Palin’s potential candidacy. The phony results suggest that little more than morbid curiosity might drive many to vote for her.
