Ironic, Ain't It?

The Piso Mojado Sign Gets Its Comeuppance

If anyone has read my posts on Irony and its place in the Universe of Creation, they will surely recognize the breathtaking reversal of fortune for the Republican elite last Tuesday night when the votes were finally counted.

In other words, the bigger they are - or believe themselves to be - the harder they fall!

Karl Rove fell so far from his imaginary pinnacle of the Temple that he pretty much destroyed any credibility he may have had as an independent political analyst. Only his continued success would have allowed him to bet millions upon a race, and then pretend to independently analyze it.

That's what's great about Irony. It is part of the warp and weft of Creation.
We think we can escape it; we think we are the Chosen People, or that we shall build a New Jerusalem in England, or somehow the Constitution will save us from evil, or Free Market ideology will work its magic...

The mighty are downcast, the meek shall inherit the earth.
