is that lately it's become more and more difficult to distinguish satire from reality. But our pals at The Onion still have their edge:
Bush Nominates First-Trimester Fetus To Supreme Court
WASHINGTON, DC—In a press conference Monday, President Bush named a 72-day-old gestating fetus as his nominee to fill the Supreme Court seat that opened following the death of Chief Justice William Rehnquist.And this one deserves a mention, too: Halliburton Gets Contract To Pry Gold Fillings From New Orleans Corpses' Teeth
"Already, this experienced and capable embryo has demonstrated during his or her in utero existence a deep commitment to the core principles of the Constitution," Bush said. "It is with great pride that I nominate this unborn American patriot to the highest court in the land."
If confirmed by Congress, the bean-sized vertebrate would be the nation's first prenatal Supreme Court justice.
