Irony: Democrat begs for civility while attacking Republicans.

Double irony: the author called the piece “Their Own Worst Enemy.”  In a world where 58% of the population wants the Democrats to abandon their policy of freezing out the GOP on health care, Dan Gerstein writes an article with sidelong sneers like these:

…against the exaggerations and fabrications (which, no doubt, have been manifold and damaging)…

…But much as the Republicans have gamed the issue…

…listen to what the non-screaming skeptics are saying…

…is as much a canard as Palin’s phony claims about death panels…

…call it Bush’s revenge…

…so much of what has come out of Congress is every bit as partisan and one-sided as the last eight years…

…the main change has been to go from one extreme to the other…

…yes, they [Republicans] are being opportunists and obstructionists…

Triple irony: Gerstein will undoubtedly not understand why his ever-so-civil outreach will be unfavorably received by the opportunistic, obstructionist, extremist, Palin-loving, canard-screaming game-playing partisans that he’s trying to oppose.

Own worst enemy, indeed.

PS: Yes, I’m often rude about my ideological opponents.  I’m also not trying to get anything from them, either.
