Political Irony Continued

November 23, 2009

It’s not only Palin that symbolizes irony in politics, to state the biggest understatement on this blog, and Obama is not immune.  Whether he’s getting censored for making a speech on censorship, using stimulus money to create jobs in congressional districts that don’t exist, or paying for that stimulus with the equivalent of one huge subprime mortgage, Obama is no golden child (despite a very strong showing in many other respects).

Obama often seems to hold promise if for no other reason than that he is capable of appreciating perspective and history, thus taking the sting out of our foolish failures if we at least heeded their lessons.  Of course, that might rely on the notion that the history that was written didn’t have biased writers, in which case we may just be screwed.
