Poe’s Law

Poe’s Law points out that it is hard to tell parodies ofAfundamentalism (or, more generally,Aany crackpot theory) from the real thing, since they both seem equally insane. Conversely,Areal fundamentalism can easily be mistaken for aAparody of fundamentalism. For example, some conservatives consider noted homophobeAFred Phelps to be so over-the-top that they argue he’s a "deep cover liberal" trying to discredit more mainstream homophobes.

Hmmmm….. can anybody say tea-party?
