Democrats and Irony

People often use the word irony incorrectly and probably at least as often incorrectly accuse others of doing so.

But this is something new:

“It’s kind of ironic that the same members who chose to shut the government down are now identifying, item by item, the important things the government does,” Mr. Lew said on CNN. “They just need to open the government up.”

The scientific method would be ironic under this definition, I think.
