I forget who it was, that pointed out that “A while fly in your Chardonnay” along with just about everything else listed in the song, Ironic by Alanis Morrisette is actually unfortunate and not actually ironic.
So, I thought I would provide a really good example. Â President George W. Bush, today signing the Law Day Proclimation that in part says,
Generations of Americans have served the cause of justice and shaped our legal institutions to ensure that the blessings of liberty extend to every citizen. The men and women of America’s legal community have worked to defend the Constitution, protect the innocent, and secure the rights of their fellow citizens. Their efforts have helped make our Nation a shining example of justice.
Now THAT is irony.
