It’s not quite Not the Los Angeles Times, but the Borowitz Report is no satirical news shlemiel. Here’s an example that I can’t stop laughing over:

In his latest effort to find common ground with Republicans in Congress, President Barack Obama said today that he was willing to agree that he is a Muslim.

Differences over his religious orientation have been a sore point between the President and his Republican foes for the past two years, but in agreeing that he is a Muslim Mr. Obama is sending a clear signal that he is trying to find consensus.

“The American people do not want to see us fighting in Washington,” Mr. Obama told reporters at the White House.  “They want to see us working together to improve their lives, and Allah willing, we will.”

Finally, the admission we’ve been waiting for. Obama went on to reiterate that his “place of birth has been, and will always be, negotiable.”

Funny stuff.
