Oh, You Republicans. Princes of Irony, All.

Billboard in Missouri cries out with irony.  You could eat the contradiction with a spoon.

A friend sent me this picture in email this morning. It’s a billboard which is apparently hanging up somewhere in public in the great state of Missouri.  Things are getting pretty bald-faced nasty in that state, it would appear.  There is nothing quite as unsettling in that Big Brother way than billboards like this one or the churchie signs on Rt 15 through Pennsylvania.

But when I look at this billboard in particular, I’m overcome with a sense of irony.  The sign begins by baldly stating that Barack Obama is a Muslim, therefore an extremist, therefore a terrorist.  Then it goes on to list all the things Barack Obama would foster as president.

Man, oh man.  I can hardly think of a person more qualified to eliminate abortion and taxes, kill gays and remove restrictions to guns than a religious extremist.  If they don’t want those things they wrote about on their billboard, they should really hire a terrorist religious freak to be president.  Oh, wait.  They already did that once, didn’t they?

And to add irony on top of irony, John McCain less qualified to uphold their “family values” than even Barack Obama is.
