On Wednesday, A New York Democratic Congresswoman cited the satirical Borowitz Report, referring to it as a “distinguished comedic think tank,” in order to undermine Republicans at a House Oversight & Government Reform Committee hearing. Apparently, Carolyn Maloney did not realize that Borowitz was being satirical in his recent New Yorker blog, when he portrayed Republicans as unhappy that the Healthcare.gov website was moving too fast for consumers. Maloney maintained the “distinguished report” was an accurate assessment of the Republicans position on Obamacare.
