In these dark days of the political humor shortage, with Jon Stewart retired and Stephen Colbert in the hiatus between the old show and the new (scheduled to premiere a week from yesterday) snide liberals thankfully still have Andy Borowitz to feed their hunger for satire.
Writing for the New Yorker, in yesterday’s hot-off-the-presses made-up newsblast, Borowitz reveals that:
“Saying that ‘things just didn’t work out,’ the billionaire Koch brothers have decided to put Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker up for sale.”
According to Borowitz, the Kochs haven’t felt good about their Walker acquisition for a while, but Walker’s recent suggestion of a fence on the Canadian border was the last straw. Borowitz quotes an unnamed Koch insider as saying that “Ignorance has always been a part of Scott’s appeal, but that Canada thing was just too much.”
