I don't agree, of course, but Tom Tomorrow of This Modern World often seems to be tearing his hair out.

What satirical websites do babblers recommend?

I like Modern Humorist, myself. Especially My First Presidentiary: A Scrapbook by G.W. Bush.

saskabush.com

It's like Onion, but not updated all that often and the material is sparse. I think like only one or two people do it.
But it's funny as hell.

Whenever you start to feel that satire just can't keep it up any more, whenever it seems that the world has got just too weird for the jokes ever to catch up again, much less turn everything upside-down, try my sure-fire, never-fail cure for the satire-deprived: read over again the first page -- just the first page -- just try! -- of Candide (Voltaire).

No matter how many times you've read it, no matter how well you think you know it, it still always works. By the time you get to Pangloss, professor of metaphysico-theologo-cosmolonigologie, you will be rolling on the floor. Promise.

LOL. The ad for Fluicide is great. And this: "Don't gnaw fingers. No need for that now, now things are here. Buy things. Buy things from we."

Anyone read Steven Lukes' The Curious Enlightenment of Professor Caritat? I think Skdadl would love that book...
