White House to Onion: Not Funny

From The New York Times:

You might have thought that the White House had enough on its plate late last month, what with its search for a new Supreme Court nominee, the continuing war in Iraq and the C.I.A. leak investigation. But it found time to add another item to its agenda - stopping The Onion, the satirical newspaper, from using the presidential seal.

The newspaper regularly produces a parody of President Bush's weekly radio address on its Web site (www.theonion.com/content/node/40121), where it has a picture of President Bush and the official insignia.
What are they worried about? The Onion is so outrageous there’s no mistaking its articles are meant to be funny.

Spokesman Trent Duffy insists the White House does have a sense of humor.

Really? It’s hard to see from here.

Then again, with Katrina, Iraq, the Plame scandal and Miers uproar, there's not much to laugh about.
