Spin alert: Onion Article Redux. (Conservatives, avert thine eyes!)

Ok, now, for all of the saner folk out there, here is one of the most amusing things I've seen in a long time.

Almost every point they used in their humorous article now has some actual event or series of events that corresponds with it.
