Satirical humour?

Andrew Little says his little outburst on George Wood’s Facebook at nearly midnight was “satirical humour”, the Herald repeats the story this morning:

Former Labour president Andrew Little is not resiling from his “humorous, satirical” suggestion that Auckland councillor George Wood would like to end the Occupy protest in Aotea Square by gunning protesters down.

Mr Little, who is standing in New Plymouth this election, made the comments on Mr Wood’s Facebook page yesterday in response to a post from the former policeman and former Mayor of North Shore.

No. Not from a would be politician. Just apologise Andrew and say you shouldn’t have posted it. Note the comment was posted on Tuesday at 23:24 – Bad time of day when the brain is not thinking clearly.

I doubt Little was being satirical or humourous, everyone knows Labour politicians are humourless pricks.
