Mark Steyn is filling in for Rush today... On the First of April...
It's April first, April Fool's Day – a day when the papers are full of lame, pathetic stories that purport to be true but are obviously just pathetically, limply amusing spoofs. Papers are full of 'em... Hilary Clinton calls Bashir Assad a reformer. True, or just an April Fool's story. In Libya, the United States and its allies are thinking of arming Al Qaeda. True? Or just an April Fool's story. According to the Wall Street Journal, twice as many Americans work in government as in manufacturing. True? Or just a pathetically obvious April Fool's spoof.
