I just love how journalists can make everything a joke. Oh yes. Government workers attacking the treasury with briefcases, yeah right....

I failed to see what 90% of the text on that page had to do with the title and top few paragraphs though....

Making everything a joke is not a science but an art.

We train for it for years.

First we sneer at Republicans. Then computer geeks. In the last class our senior year of J-School, we ascend to the heights of belittling gun owners and survivalists.

It takes a while to learn how to do it with flair and elan, you understand.
