Can such articles fall under the category of political satire? What sort of writing or journalism is it? This has been really bugging me recently, with the rise in popularity of just this type of thing.

I wouldn't call it journalism. Satire sounds about right. Maybe even propaganda.

I think such writings were always popular (politicians are an easy target), today it is just easier to spread the information around.
