Whatever the case, this election has created unprecedented fodder for new media satire. Lets run though a few of the gems of this primary’s jabs.

She needs to put on a sarong and some sun block and get away from things for a while, a nice beach somewhere — somewhere far away, where there are…no phones.” (I recommend the audio version)
