Irony FAIL?

BY Nancy Scola | Monday, June 28 2010

Regarding the Meg Whitman FAIL situation, Stan Olshefski, a new media strategist with experience in Republican politics, suggests on Twitter that perhaps my irony bone is broken, given that a site built on "parody" is going after a politician for parodying their site.

Fair enough point. But parody, here, would seem to require that people would recognize from a very quick glimpse that Whitman was using a mockup of FAIL Blog, and not the real thing.
