The Onion is a satirical website.
The guy did not say that, and his name is not Denton.

It's satire, people.

It's amazing how easily people fall for these spoof sites
For example The Onion-faked Obama rambling 75,000 word email that was posted by the lunatic-fringe righty blogosphere (urban email nonsense) was swallowed by righty nut jobs, including Fox Nation.

See some other successful spoofs below

Well plenty mugs fell for James Files. That guy who left bullets at the crime scene with teeth marks in them.

Yep, just the sort of thing The Onion goofs on.

People who admit that they shot at the President (like James Files) always claim they fired the fatal head shot. We never have one step forward and confess that they made the shot that missed the limousine and nicked James Tague.

. . . as if you actually know that there was a shot that missed the limousine and nicked James Tague.

As if you actually know that James Tague was nicked at all.
