The St. Petersburg Times published an article (mistakenly) describing the Republican fall campaign strategy.

Rove and Satan

Apparently it is a column by Borowitz who spoofs traditional news. However, the paper published it as fact (which IMHO it likely is).

This makes me think of Frasier Crane's description of his agent: "She doesn't have to worship Satan. He worships her!"

Why is Satan at the meeting? Is he Rove's new intern?

IIRC, it wasn't the shoe bomber's loud prayers that sparked the takedown by the other passengers; it was that he was trying to light his shoe on fire. Very, very different. Canuckistan

I thought Satan worked for Rove, not the other way around. Boy was I confused [Wink]

Uh, are you sure about that? As opposed to someone hacking the paper's web edition? IME, the St. Pete Times is not such a bad paper that they would "mistakenly" publish as fact a story about a person literally meeting with Satan. Let alone a story about Rove doing so. I need a lot more evidence than a screen shot to believe that this made it past editors and fact checkers.
