Satire Satisfies at the Moment

Satire will certainly satisfy some of the bubbling anger out there right now, as this PR firm clearly sees in the wake of the recent Supreme Court decision to end restrictions on the ability of made-up persons (corpies) to exercise their freedom of speech via campaign contributions:

But like all weak drugs, satire can only satisfy for so long until a certain jadedness sets in. Then, as anger and dysfunction continue to build, the herd needs stronger and more satisfying outlets for the building rage.

Satire now, sort of the near beer for emotional venting. Molotov cocktails come later, when it is time to get down to business.
