Excerpted from “Sharron Angle Seeks Restraining Order Against "The Press",” Ridiculopathy Daily, Thursday July 22, 2010
[SIZE="+2"]S[/SIZE]enate Candidate Sharron Angle can't catch a break when it comes to the press. It seems like whenever she opens her mouth to say something bizarre or embarrassing, there they are with their cameras and pencils ready to record it all. Worse still, her tormentors spend days on end repeating her words out of context- or worse, in context. It's so unfair.
On Thursday Angle held a press conference and who should happen to show up but (you guessed it) the press. Typical. She said very bluntly that she didn't want them there and that they weren't welcome but they just wouldn't leave her alone. She refused to answer their annoying questions but that wasn't enough to shake the horde of stalkers. So, she did what any rational person would do when faced with a dozen or so invited guests. She ran from them. But even as she fled for her life, they pursued her, eager for one more combustable quote or perhaps a lock of her hair. …
It's satire but like all good satire, not far from the truth. Moths are to open flames as Sharron Angle is to the press; they are both compulsively attracted and consumed.
