It is a stretch to think people are "approving" of Ruby Vee due to veteran status on this board. I have personally never met the woman (or who I assume is a woman...I would not know).
She did not "make fun". She utilized a literary style known as "satire" and, frankly, did it quite well. I will own that not everyone can appreciate it and I myself might find my face red to be utilized in it. Wikipedia defines satire as follows:
Satire is a genre of literature, and sometimes graphic and performing arts, in which vices, follies, abuses, and shortcomings are held up to ridicule, ideally with the intent of shaming individuals, corporations, and society itself, into improvement. Although satire is usually meant to be humorous, its greater purpose is often constructive social criticism, using wit as a weapon and as a tool to draw attention to both particular and wider issues in society.
Shakespeare utilized it not infrequently to poke at members of aristocracy. However, it is a valid writing style that has nothing to do with "neener neener" playground antics and it has nothing at all to do with the subject matter.
