Shameful: The Onion reports John McCain’s onstage ‘suicide’

The Onion is known for satire so sharp that it fools even smarter-than-thou liberals. Hopefully no one falls for this “joke,” published to coincide with Sen. McCain’s address to the RNC, which fell flat with anyone with a bit of class left.

“Folks, I can’t do this. I just can’t do this anymore.” – John McCain before committing suicide at the RNC http://t.co/Gs5WTf1k

Seriously, not funny — especially when the retweets strip out the source of the “humor.”
