Things have been a bit difficult for Jon Russell since his wife, Sarah, confirmed that he'd been using fake names and identities to attack political opponents on blogs and on comment sections of various newspapers.
So, imagine my surprise when I read this:
Washougal Councilman Jon Russell said during last night’s meeting he understands it is a process that involves a public hearing, but he does not have “high hopes” of people giving their names and addresses while speaking in favor of medical marijuana collective gardens.Russell, who has lacked the courage to attack his numerous political opponents openly, has relied on lying about who he is and where he lives for years.
Irony is defined as, among other things, a technique of indicating, as through character or plot development, an intention or attitude opposite to that which is actually or ostensibly stated.
For a Jon Russell to make such a claim as the one above, is to manage to peg the Irony meter in ways the developers never imagined.
