Hoax political websites have created some controversy, particularly if they imitate recognizable government home pages. Nonetheless, the free speech prerogative for these subversive webmasters generally entitles them to continue operations. Of course, the more subtle the satire, arguably the less Constitutionally protected it could potentially be. I'm particularly fond of the work done by the Washington Defense of Marriage Alliance, which imitates the rhetoric of Bibliocentric doctrine against gay marriage -- on the grounds of its reproductive futility -- to skewer the pretensions of sanctimonious wedded heterosexuals who fail to bear children and suggest legislation requiring that their unions be annulled.
