Is it supposed to be satire?

The ironically-challenged Barbara from mahablog has a post so — well— OK I’ll say it — So stupid, she has to be being satirical.

The death toll from the tsunami continues to climb. Reuters UK is reporting 63,000 dead. The World Health Organization estimates that as many people could die of infectious disease in the aftermath of the disaster. …

President Bush has shamed our nation by pledging only $15 million for disaster aid. His upcoming coronation is expected to cost more than twice that. So, as want and disease and famine and grief spread over much of the earth, the Boy King will be whooping it up in grandly austentatious [sic] style.

The impact of this disaster is beyond calculation. The earth was knocked off its axis. Islands have changed locations. Entire families, probably some entire communities, are lost. Surely this is a time for humans to pull together as a species, as fellow inhabitants of our planet, and do whatever we can.In this “pulling together” are we supposed to follow Barbara’s lead? Nothing pulls people together like calling the President a nation shaming, Boy King now does it???

For her sake, I hope that’s satire… Because either that is satire or that was just a colossally stupid thing to write.
