Happy Birthday to Political Irony

My inaugural post to this blog was two years ago today. At the time I had no idea it would become so popular, and figured that readership would drop after the presidential elections. Ironically, the readership actually took off shortly after the election.

I hope you enjoy a little humor with your politics. Thanks to everyone for the generally insightful comments, and for sending me ideas for stories. On this Mother’s Day, I definitely feel like the mother of a two-year-old toddler.

    As Hunter S. Thompson said – “I have a theory that the truth is never told during the nine-to-five hours.”

    I also have a theory that humor and comedy will get us closer to the absolute truth than any factual reporting.

    Happy Birthday!! I’m anxiously waiting to see how your terrible twos are.

    Ironicaslly, conservatives and Republicans have become more ironic since the election. I’m glad somebody compiles it.

    Terrible Twos! Yeah, that might just be right. I suspect that with all the Tea Party candidates trying to get elected in November, there will be no lack of irony this year. And if they manage to actually get elected, with their mandate of “keep government off my back, except for all those programs I like”, things might get even more ironic.

    Good times? 🙂

    Congrats Iron. I’ve been here since the “I just don’t know about this obama fellow” comic you posted that I came across on stumbleupon, and since then me and my girlfriend are daily readers.

    A common phrase around the house is always “so did you check political irony today?” so congrats on your two years. keep it up and we hope to be with you for the long haul!
