Tip for politicians – The Onion is satire

Just when you thought

everyone had figured out that The Onion was satirical and shouldn’t be taken seriously, another politician links

to one of their articles. Dr. John Fleming, a Republican congressmen from Louisiana was duped by an article title

d Planned Parenthood Opens $8 Billion Abortionplex and posted the article to his Facebook account.

The post as been taken down, but you can view

it at Literally Unbelievable who archives posts that take The Onion seriously. One commenter posted:

The Onion is satire. How exactly did you get elected?

That may be a little harsh, even savvy longtime twitterer Ashton Kutcher makes mistakes.
