Georgian Irony

I see the President is going to spend the entire week touring the country, speaking before hand-picked audiences, trying to sell folks on his Sooper-Dooper-Secret, completely illegal warrantless-spying-on-Americans program. I wish him more luck flogging that one than he had in similar tours flogging Social Security Reform and a new tax code.

Oh, why lie? No I don't.

If you went to the White House website recently, not only did you get spyware installed on your computer, but you also saw that PresidentPretzel took the opportunity to issue a proclamation about National Respect for Life Day or some such thing yesterday. The proclamation starts like this-

"NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States..."

Say what you will about George, he's apparently maintained his sense of irony.

I think it is safe to say that the only sense the Bush administration has is a sense of irony.

They certainly don't give me a sense of well being and I sense it is only going to get worse.

Does this make any sense?

So on Sept 12th when they annouced the death of irony, they were just being ironic? ah i get it. no no i don't.

does anyone besides me think what little timber is in his voice is approaching an hysterical pitch?
