The infinite loop of ‘parody’

We all know that a Pulitzer campaign for World Net Daily is around the corner. Just look at this brave editorial stand of a few weeks ago.

Which leads one to wonder whether Chuck Norris will call up fellow scholar Ted Nugent and discuss their position on this or maybe just the Bowflex:
World Net Daily editor Joseph Farah and author Jerome Corsi have finally made good on their threats and sued Esquire for a satirical article that claimed that they were no longer members of the so-called 'birther' movement...

...the suit calls Corsi a "world renowned author" and says WND "competes nationally and internationally" with Esquire.

Yes, they truly compete. Many are the times Americans debate over buying a copy of Esquire versus opening their uncle's forwarded emails about what recently found Kenyan birth certificates show. Clearly there's no frivolity here.

Defendant Warren, on behalf of himself and Esquire, told The Daily Caller that they had “no regrets” in posting the subject stories and that Plaintiff Corsi, and by extension the other Plaintiffs, are an “execrable piece of shit.”

The suit asserts this is also an actionable statement.

Beware the vortex.

Gotta admit, the Daily Cholera interviewing an Esquire writer about a suit filed by Wingnutz Daily is pretty much the goddamnedest news item you're going to hear all week....
