Poe

January 25, 2016

Calling Poe is to point to statements so extreme that — barring external clue — it is impossible to tell whether they are meant seriously or were written as parody of the person making them. For example, a Republican senator saying we shouldn’t require restaurant employees to wash their hands after using the bathroom. Or another Republican senator, so aptly named, criticizing Obama for negotiating with Iran because Reagan would never do so.

Poe, damn it. Poe.
