But in my experience, some people and positions are very difficult to satirize... or at least very frustrating. Because what I regard as grotesque, ridiculous exaggeration, some of their supporters take to be enthusiastic agreement. And then those supporters take things even farther. My most bizarre imaginings don't — can't — go as far as what some people take to be absolute truth.
And, of course, I don't want to be perceived as being on their side.
