Irony – one definition: “the incongruity of this.” Random House Webster's College Dictionary
The big one:
The Los Angeles Times, among other news outfits, reported Saturday (Sept. 22, 2007) that George Bush, “after smothering efforts by war critics in Congress to drastically cut U.S. troop levels in Iraq,” plans to ask Congress this week to approve a “massive spending measure – totaling nearly $200 billion” to fund the Iraq war next year. That will make 2008 the most expensive year of that war. So far.
