    News with snicker value. Somewhat like The Onion but on the gentler side.

    Man Who Intentionally Divided Nation For Eight Years Calls For Unity.”

    Let’s not hate each other, at least not until a Democrat is in office again.”

    Trump is really mean, let’s all focus on that,” Obama is quoted as saying in the piece.

    Calling Americans “racist,” telling Latino voters to “punish their enemies,” and using the White House Easter prayer to attack Christians were among some examples cited of his divisiveness.

    So maybe the Babylon Bee piece is closer to fact than satire.

    More @ Babylon Bee May Be Satirical, But Its Latest Story About Obama Couldn't Be More Accurate

    And then we get great stuff from the Duffle Blog

    Senator proudly cites DNA test to prove he’s nearly 1 percent veteran @ Senator proudly cites DNA test to prove he’s nearly 1 percent veteran

    BOSTON — Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Dickard Rosenthal has released the results of genetic testing to add legitimacy to his claim that he is “basically a veteran” and “should be treated as such”.

    The DNA test shows that he has a distant grandparent that may have possibly fought in the Thirty Years War, the French Revolution, or was a member of a Mongol horde terrorizing eastern Europe in the 13th century, Roesnthal said in a press release and a subsequent CNN-sponsored town hall event.

    Followed by:
