The truth in satire

C/NET and The Onion have come up with this satire about the U.S. Government's response to the growth of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

According to the piece, "The Bush administration unveiled a new $64 billion spending package Monday for a joint CIA–Pentagon program aimed at neutralizing the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation's global humanitarian network."

That's what makes satire work - it just could be true.
