Plumbing the Outer Limits of Stupidity

Conservatives are getting so extreme in their efforts to deny critics the ability to satirize them that even some conservatives are themselves getting annoyed by it all. It had to happen, because doing ridiculous things in all seriousness in order to undercut satire in advance will eventually make you look too stupid to be worth satirizing; some conservatives may have finally reached that low point.

…Oh, who am I kidding — there is no "low point" for them. They'll find something worse in a couple of months and I'll have an even harder time writing about it. So not only is satire apparently dead, at least where American conservatives are concerned, but the ability to underestimate how stupid they will behave has also died a grisly, painful death — and in both cases, the coup de grace is Joe Wurzelbacher, a.k.a. Joe the Plumber, going to Israel to report on the Israeli assault on Gaza from the perspective of the "average Joe."
