Irony isn't just dead, now the Cheney family is spitting on its grave

on

As the GOP becomes more unhinged and terrified of the ideas of Elizabeth Warren and AOC it is becoming more we are in an irony blood bath. But the Cheney’s are a special case. No, I mean really a special case. Dick Cheney was such a miscreant and embarrassment to the United State that one of our primary social comedians, Adam McKay, he of the Big Short made a docudrama about him which was also of course a dark comedy (about as dark as you get). The thing is he did not even have to add little touches to make it a comedy like he did with the Big Short. Dick Cheney was, is and always will be a national humiliation. And Donald Trump is not going to make that disappear no matter how hard he tries.  Then his unqualified daughter gets a seat in Congress riding the clown’s coattails. I don’t think even Adam McKay would handle that.

And now this unqualified daughter of a mechanical, vicious Oompa Lumpa who Charlie must have thrown out of the chocolate factory is saying the self made, brilliant, courageous Elizabeth Warren is a laughing stock and Jake (what kind of raise can I get by protecting rich people’s money, including my own) Tapper is just sitting there nodding along.

I knew irony. Irony was a friend of mine. And irony has a message from the grave for both Cheney and Tapper. Go f*ch yourself.
