Reality Follows Different Laws in this Parallel Universe

In the parallel universe I visited this afternoon there's a topsy-turvy planet, called -- for obscure historical reasons -- T. Parti, where black is white, greed is good, taxes are bad and government is something you drown in the bathtub. Lies are celebrated, truth distrusted and facts are seen as irritating nuisances, which are -- like mosquitoes -- best avoided. Once a year, on something they call Tax Day, the inhabitants gather to drink tea in honor of the deity they hope will protect them from the evil of taxes. Their deity is known as Bright Bart for the brilliance of the wisdom he has handed down to them.

 

Wearing a “Remember” shirt to honor Bright Bart, Jumbotron speaker Dana Loesch accused Democrats of launching a “war on moms.” A gentleman named Luke Hilgemann estimated there were 6,300 celebrants at the event. Both statements, in the best T. Parti tradition, are completely devoid of factual content. You can read about it in the astronomical journal WisPolitics.com.
