Hopes dimmed for a Republican / Democratic agreement on reducing the budget deficit when Harold Camping, he of the failed Rapture predictions said on his radio program, “Saying Crap I Think I See In The Bible And Blaming It On God”, that he predicted the Tea Bagger wing of the GOP would put the welfare of the country ahead of partisan politics. He also opined that the Tea Baggers would put their concerns for money on the back burner for awhile to make sure the social safety net is secure.
Fake News site, The Onion immediately convened an executive meeting to decide on a response to this surprising foray of Camping’s Bible based Family Radio into the wild and woolly field of fake news. “We know everybody tries it at some time or another”, said Onion spokesperson Manuel Leek, but it’s not easy. You have to choose a topic that has some believably. This is just plain over the top. Tea Baggers putting the welfare of the country ahead of self centered, partisan politics? Who does Camping think is going to believe that; besides other Tea Baggers?
When reached for comment on the believability question, Family Radio spokesperson Anthony Testament said that since the world population is reaching seven billion, and since, as the saying goes, “You can fool some of the people all of the time”, we’re not worried about where our next crop of believers will come from”.
