Will the LSM Even Understand Sarcasm-Laced Sports Analogies?

Madame managed to provided the perfect balance of serious sanctity and snarky sarcasm today. As today is Palm Sunday, Madame and BOTUS provided a nice tweet honoring our Savior. As the media has been all up in arms (pun intended) claiming that Madame is inciting violence, Madame put the proverbial smack down on the media today with a Facebook post using "violence inciting" satire. It's just to good to not do the ol' copy and paste:
March Madness battles rage! My family and I join millions of Americans enjoying college basketball’s finest through March Madness. Underdogs always get my vote as we watch intense competition bring out the best in these accomplished teams.

The Final Four is an intense, contested series (kind of like a heated, competitive primary election), so best of luck to all teams, and watch for this principle lived out: the team that wins is the team that wants it more.

To the teams that desire making it this far next year: Gear up! In the battle, set your sights on next season’s targets! From the shot across the bow – the first second’s tip-off – your leaders will be in the enemy’s crosshairs, so you must execute strong defensive tactics. You won’t win only playing defense, so get on offense! The crossfire is intense, so penetrate through enemy territory by bombing through the press, and use your strong weapons – your Big Guns – to drive to the hole. Shoot with accuracy; aim high and remember it takes blood, sweat and tears to win.

Focus on the goal and fight for it. If the gate is closed, go over the fence. If the fence is too high, pole vault in. If that doesn’t work, parachute in. If the other side tries to push back, your attitude should be “go for it.” Get in their faces and argue with them. (Sound familiar?!) Every possession is a battle; you’ll only win the war if you’ve picked your battles wisely. No matter how tough it gets, never retreat, instead RELOAD!

- Sarah Palin

The sarcasm in this piece had me laughing so hard that I was rolling. It made it very difficult for Madame to type.

Time will tell if the softy southpaws and their pals in the media even understand this post. After all, Madame used sarcasm and political sports analogies, both are things that liberals never seem to get. Right, Anderson Cooper?

However, perhaps they have forgotten that Pukelosi used the pole vaulting/parachuting analogy, and the Great Opologizer told people to get in other people's faces. double standard?
