The New Yorker: After disappointing results in Tuesday’s election, Mr. Priebus said that it was time for Republicans to become “more tolerant of those with a math-and-science lifestyle.”

I realize that this sounds all too plausible, but it never happened. This quotation comes from The Borowitz Report, a satirical column that now appears in The New Yorker. Repeat: satire.

Reince Priebus never said that it was time for Republicans to become more tolerant of those with a math-and-science lifestyle. Sorry to say, but intolerance and rejection of scientific knowledge will continue for many years to come. This is not a joke. I wish it were, but it is not.

I love satire, but I am afraid that Borowitz has stepped over the line with this one. It is just too real to be funny.
