Does Life Imitate Satire?

Check out the following onion article from January 18, 2001 titled Bush: ‘Our Long National Nightmare of Peace and Prosperity Is Finally Over’

It starts out like this:

“My fellow Americans,” Bush said, “at long last, we have reached the end of the dark period in American history that will come to be known as the Clinton Era, eight long years characterized by unprecedented economic expansion, a sharp decrease in crime, and sustained peace overseas. The time has come to put all of that behind us.”

It goes on from there. Someone took that article and put up hyperlinks to real news stories and you get something that makes the Onion look more like the Oracle. Take a look.
