Who’d want to live in a world like that?
But are ironic sensibilities like Ms. Didion’s — the detachment of mind, the appreciation of the folly of taking things at face value — really disappearing?
Not according to the conservative humorist P. J. O’Rourke, who reported from his New Hampshire office on Wednesday that he was finishing a piece for The Weekly Standard with the working title, “Is It Too Soon to Start Talking About the Failed Obama Presidency Just Because He Isn’t President Yet?”
Not according to the thin black novelist Colson Whitehead, who wrote an Op-Ed in The New York Times under the headline, “Finally, a Thin President.”
Dildon’s comment is ironic in and of itself. Newman also cites none other then P.J. O’Rourke commenting on President Elect Obama to prove irony is not dead…
Mr. O’Rourke, for his part, said that Mr. Change himself, with his choices of usual suspects and Beltway insiders to help him run the country, was proving no slouch in the irony department.
“Mr. Change” the irony of this statement is too obvious, is it not? Do comments by O’Rourke indicate the “Obama Embargo” is showing cracks? One can only hope.
