The spirit of spoof

I read with some concern the Jan 24 political letter in the Bangkok Post which was titled ''My spoof Democrat letter''. 

I have no opinion on the politics that the letter was dealing with, but I do believe that the word ''spoof'' has not been used correctly. The letter is a political parody, not a spoof.

The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines spoof as a deception or hoax or a light-natured parody.
