@2, only the last sentence points to irony. and i missed that point. i would not say DRIPPING. but in the age of fake news and hyper flipflopping, it's hard to detect even DRIPPING irony. nevertheless, im taking it down because there is doubt. here it is for others who want to read what i wrote:
NYMAG to the Left: Be Civil With Trump Because GOP Was Civil With Obama: Read this and and see the putty that our times can make of even recent history...
[A]ny Democratic activists or legislators who have been contemplating total intransigence would do well to heed Kellyanne Conway’s call for bipartisan comity. Whatever one thinks of Trump, giving him reflexive and unyielding respect — while helping him accomplish his most popular policy goals — is simply good politics.
Recall how the Republican Party responded to Barack Obama’s victory in 2008. Instead of forming a “permanent opposition” that would have corroded our democratic institutions, the GOP framed the election of the first black president as a source of pride for all Americans — and then rallied behind that president, to help the nation battle its way back from financial crisis.
Recall how the GOP rallied behind Obama?!? How they helped him end the financial crisis!?! This kind of rewriting of history is not only obnoxious, it's dangerous.
