I’ll admit to feeling silly for what amounts to literally passing on talking points from the DSCC but speaking about Paul McNulty’s resignation, Chuck Schumer gets it just right: ““It seems ironic that Paul McNulty who at least tried to level with the committee goes while Gonzales who stonewalled the committee is still in charge.” As a bonus, this also works for today’s 90s Nostalgia Blogging (N.B. this feature will end on Saturday when the Ultimate Nineties Alt Rock Party happens):

I have a longstanding contention that the not-actually-ironic nature of the various purported examples of irony in the song is the ironic part and not just some kind of coincidence.
