Satire Is Dead, Part MCMLXXVII

Stephen Colbert (check him at Colbert Nation) has been satirically lampooning the whole "War on Christmas" thing lately by making up claims about a "War on Easter." He's shown catalogs with Easter bears in it to "prove" that the secular forces of doom are pushing out the Easter Bunny.

The Colbert Report is a work of satire.

It's mainly satirizing The O'Reilly Factor.

O'Reilly's started talking about the War on Easter.

O’REILLY: Although some left-wingers in the media deny it, we have documented a number of cases where Christian holidays like Christmas and Easter have been attacked by secular interests. Lawsuits and corporate policies have proved this point over and over again.

Make your plans for the satire funeral. For it's dead, oh yes, it's dead, and it will not be revived.
