    I just watched Governor-elect Chris Christie (R-NJ) give a victory speech and I can't imagine anyone who watched it wasn't rolling in "irony".

    Cristie went on and on about how the American people have rejected personal attacks and smears. You see, Corzine focused on Christie's weight during the campaign. These days, that type of campaigning is definitely a losing strategy. Personal attacks make you look desperate and it makes you look like you have nothing else to run on.

    The irony is that came from a Republican.

    Remember:

    Racist
    Marxist
    Fascist
    Socialist
    Empty suit
    Fried Chicken and ribs
    Terrorist
    Illegal Alien
    Kill Grandma
    Death Panels
    Appeaser
    Dithering

    It proves that a Republican can win, but not by calling Michelle Obama a “ho” or any of the other personal and disgraceful attacks by Republicans. It makes them look, well, “desperate” and makes them look like “they have nothing else to run on.

    The blind must think that the Dems never do personal attacks, so I can see how it would be ironic.

    Don't see many personal attacks in those phrases. What the hell is wrong with fried chicken and ribs by the way?

    Si, you're an intelligent poster. Has someone redefined the meaning of the word 'irony' and not told me? I'm usually really good at seeing the irony.

    Did they win any seats in this election? They did win two governorships. Congratulations.

    It's possible that a redefinition did actually occur without my knowledge as I have yet to receive my official lexicon of Newspeak. Which reminds me that I have to get another complaint letter out about that.

    Not personal attacks, "personal defense".

    I see the list of Republican attacks that continue on a daily bases. I hear Republican say, "b b b b but the Democrats do it to", then, very occasionally, they come up with maybe one. Even that one usually turns out to be a "stretch".
