Yesterday at the blog that keeps me from going postal at my day job I described the suspension of Keith Olbermann as "the ironic cherry on the icky campaign sundae" that was the 2010 election season.
I liked that. My first thought was, "ironic cherry" -- Dave Barry would think that was a cool name for a band. On the other hand, I had been thinking for months about what I would name my new blog. I planned on retiring my 2010 election season blog when Alvin Greene retired his political career and went back home to Manning with whatever golden parachute he had been promised when he agreed to "run".
So after the band idea, it occurred to me that "The Ironic Cherry" would be a great name for a blog.
Too much irony in politics goes unnoticed and unanswered. So maybe I'll spend some time ruminating on the odd lies and contradictions that we breathe in every time a politician or a CEO exhales.
