I remember one of my high school classmates complaining about my debating tactics: “Duigon ridiculized it!” But really there’s very little any satirist can do to make today’s politics more ridiculous than they are by nature. For instance:
If I am entitled to be called a woman when I’m not, then surely I’m also entitled to be called “Wilt Chamberlain” if that’s my particular delusion. Really, what’s the difference? How am I ridiculizing something that’s already ridiculous?
As a foundation of civilization, the preposterous looks pretty weak to me.
