Good Satire

If you like satire, Iowa Hawk assumes the role of Christopher Buckley (aka T. Coddington Van Voorhees VII). It's hysterically funny.

On "true conservatives" discussing Obama:

It's that easy-going, almost effortless grace that has all the A-list conservatives like David Frum and Kathleen Parker whispering Reaganesque in hushed tones. Even Peggy Noonan -- the Grand Dame of Gipperism -- has succumbed to Obama's undeniable conservative charms. Just last month I listened to her wax poetic about the Adonis of Chicago between chukkers at the Newport Club polo tournament final. "Why Peggy, you old dowager," I quipped, "I believe you just had an orgasm."

On Sarah Palin:

I mean, my God, this woman is simply awful; the elided vowels, the beauty pageantry, the guns, the crude non-Episcopal protestantism, the embarrassing porchload of children with horrifying hillbilly names, the white after Labor Day. As fellow conservative commentator Andrew Sullivan quipped to me the other day outside a Martha's Vineyard antique shop, it's gratifying to know the Gipper isn't alive to see what has become of his party.

It gets better. Enjoy.

Actually, it's gratifying to know that Andrew Jackson and Teddy Roosevelt aren't alive to see what's become of their respective parties...
