Steyn in Shlock and Awe

When the jihadists slaughtered the cartoonists of Charlie Hebdo, I worried that they had killed satire.

But Charlie Hebdo produced this week’s issue on schedule.

Alas, however, satire is now officially dead. Earlier today, the US Secretary of State flew James Taylor into Paris to sing “You’ve Got A Friend” to the French nation. Seriously. Under Bush, extrajudicial rendition meant the CIA shipping you overseas to be tortured by the Saudis and Pakistanis. Under Obama, an extrajudicial rendition means shipping fey old folkies to Europe to torture the natives…

Kerry arrives in France; brings James Taylor

    James Taylor has something more appropriate in his repertoire:

  • Laguna Beach Fogey

    What a f*cking embarrassment.

  • Raymond Hietapakka

    Personally, I feel like Kerry is making some weird kind of sick joke…

    • Minicapt

      Nope, he’s a thinking progressive caring person always trying to help his fellowman in the bestest way he can conceive. He’s very big on compassion and sympathy, and quite confident that he can overcome whatever through intimate conversation and shared experiences. Next, Carole King …
