Would Be A Lot Funnier If It Weren't True

That top picture should be in the Irony Hall of Fame.

It's too bad conservatives don't grasp the concept of irony.

Irony? You mean like Obama campaigning on having the "most trasparent administration in history" type of irony?

Or perhaps the post-partisan, post-racial world we were promised under his leadership? Do you mean that kind of irony?

Or that he said the buck stops with him regarding the BP oil spill as he continues to dither on the sidelines and have concerts at the White House? Yeah, I get the concept of irony.

It's funny where you can find it, if you only look!

How can you hold Obama responsible for racism? He never - never - said that electing him will end racism and partisanship. And how do you account for the rabid partisanship of the GOP? Is that Obama's fault, too? Or what about the racism in talk radio - like Limbaugh calling the President "Barack the Magic Negro"? Again, is this Obama's fault? Oh, wait, there's no racism on the right. Uh huh.

Seriously, man, where do you get your information?

And why is the BP oil spill Obama's responsibility? It was the Bush/Cheney administration's lax regulation and permit process that allowed for this leak. And concerts in the White House? So fucking what! Is Obama supposed to be plugging the leak himself, personally? I mean, how dare he even take time to eat lunch!

You guys are so freaking unhinged. I find it quite pathetic. You continue to blame Democrats for the consequences of your policies and your failures. I thought you were the "party of personal responsibility"? Guess the only thing you're responsible for is blaming everyone else for your failures.

Oh, and speaking of irony, you don't see any in the fact that you attack Obama for a lack of transparency (a blatantly false charge), yet just the other day you defended Dick Cheney's secret meetings with energy companies at the White House in 2001. Sounds pretty transparent. And nothing at all was untoward about Cheney getting a $34 million golden parachute from the same company - Haliburton - who gets billions in government contracts in Iraq and the Gulf of Mexico under his watch?

Add transparent to the list of concepts conservatives just don't get.
