More than a few shocked readers of The Onion today called Rep. Michele Bachmann’s callous reaction to the shootings in Oak Creek, Wis., “unbelievable.” Bachmann’s relief that “not a single American died in this event” is, quite literally, not to be believed — The Onion is a well-known parody site. Who doesn’t know that?

Palin-esque, you say? To be fair, The Onion’s shtick is to appear as much like a mainstream newspaper as possible, so take heart; people more famous than you have fallen for parodies as well.
