Other: Now Entering An Irony-Free Zone

As the Significant Other and I were driving home last night, she pointed out a flashing sign that was over the highway. It read:

PAY ATTENTION TO ROAD

A flashing neon sign.

Up a notch would perhaps be the chairman of the House Caucus on Missing and Exploited Children being a paedophile.

And higher, we have an art teacher being fired for taking her students to a museum.

More? Okay, how about an historic display of banned books... being banned?

A step higher than that was this gentleman, noted at Shakespeare's Sister, who made this comment during this year's Banned Books Week:

"I want to get the book taken out of the class."

The book in question? Fahrenheit 451.

It's quite bizarre to me that the Mr. Foley's path to that post is not the real issue here.

Ture enough, especially if the Republican leadership knew about his predilections before hand!
