Centrist tries to write satirical article, gives himself 5/10

I, a centrist, decided to write a satirical article. Unfortunately, the balanced approach of finding good and bad in any situation, policy or person is not best suited for the take-down style of most comic news websites.

It’s unlikely this article will have enthusiastic mainstream support, but it might succeed by not being hated. If people hate it, hopefully an exact same amount of other people love it, so it still comes out neutral.

What do you think so far? This paragraph is a bit up itself and way too self-referential for its own good, but at least it’s self-aware enough to mention it. Certainly, the first two paragraphs could have done with an extra joke or two.

I feel like the writer was banking too much on the idea of the article, so the actual content is lacking. Let’s hope it picks up in the next paragraph.

It doesn’t.
