    This is satire, right? While the story about the tiger and goat might be true, the story of the Russian politician's spin on it must be satire.

    Oh that was a Russian? I must've skimmed too quickly. I thought it was a Republican.

    But, no, that didn't strike me as satire. That struck me as their level of thinking. Thank God for global warming. They may thaw free from the ice age yet.

    Your post made me think of Poe's Corollary. Where extreme views are interpreted as parody by others, though they are sincerely held by the original person or group.

    It can be hard to accept people actually think in this way, but it is likely this politician comes from an environment where his views are quite normal and come across as rational.

    I have seen this video before too and don't think what was said was meant to be taken seriously.
