Satire Becomes Reality

For some time now, it has been getting harder and harder to distinguish between satire and reality. Satirical sites like The Babylon Bee must have a hard time come up with material that hasn't already become reality. Our entire culture, and especially our political scene, has become banal, silly and vacuous. The leadership of both parties reflects this.

In 1975 Monty Python and the Holy Grail was released. It remains one of the funniest, most quotable movies ever. This scene was supposed to poke fun as overly serious political wonks. In 2018 this is actually the state of politics, particularly on the Left. The absurdness of reality has overtaken satire and comedy.
