Progressives Rally Against Right-Wing Success

Dozens of television hosts and progressive bloggers gathered in Washington, D.C. today to protest the recent popularity of right-wing conservative authors.  After an anti-prayer breakfast at the Mayfair Hotel, the group marched to the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, where they chanted and sold autographs to passersby.

“I hate them!  I hate everyone!  I hate myself!  Fe Fi Fo Fum!” cried MSNBC host Keith Olbermann, whose speech was cut short after he spotted a nearby squirrel and took off in chase.

Many in the crowd became restless when local television coverage was delayed by a five-alarm fire in the Capitol building.  Several liberal bloggers wearing Al Gore masks tried to scale the statue of Abraham Lincoln but gave up when they realized they had forgotten to cut out eye holes.

Criticism of best-selling authors Glenn Beck and Michelle Malkin has noticeably intensified over the past weeks.  President Obama recently invited the pair to represent the United States in a hiking tour of Iran, and the faculty of Harvard University has called for a total boycott of American culture, except “The Biggest Loser,” on NBC each Tuesday at 8 PM Eastern, 7 Central.

The rally broke up in front of a Sno-Cone stand after the group realized that no one had change for a twenty.
