Coincidence or Irony?

So is it a coincidence or just ironic that the 2,000 U.S. soldier is killed in Iraq the same week that Scooter Libby is indicted for outing a CIA officer who’s husband rightly discredited one of the Administration’s justifications for war?

I wish Ethan Hawke were here so that he could remind me of the exact definition of ironic. Savvybeast could have asked him last weekend when he and the Woodman had breakfast with him.

Seriously. We had partied in NY last Saturday night and I was still a little weak (read: hung over) on Sunday morning, so the Beast and Woody went for breakfast without me. The diner was way crowded so the host sat the two of them at a four top with Ethan Hawk and friend.

But I digress. Back to the original question: is it a coincidence or merely ironic? It still kills me that all Clinton did was lie about getting a beej and he was almost impeached for it, while Bush has lied to the entire country on more than one occasion, and nothing!

What is it going to take, America?
