We are beyond satire now.

Satirist Bruce Jay Friedman thought we already were, back in the early 70s, after an American officer was reported as saying, "The village had to be bombed to be saved."

I thought satire was supposed to be dead since Kissenger won the nobel peace prize. Hasn't stopped the various satirists in the years since

For those of you preoccupied with a lack of right-wing comics I believe your prayers may have been answered.

I liked his line about satire that placates the court - pretty much all UK satire right now.

Satire that pokes fun at Corbyn's anti-semitism, rather than the absurdity of Corbyn being considered anti-semitic, and the story behind it, for example.

I don't think I've ever seen him be interviewed before. Quite strange seeing him out of character.
