R.I.P. Irony

According to the New York Times, irony is dead. From John McWhorter, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute:

“When you vote for Obama,” he said, “you are showing that you are past the nastiness, and that’s a natural feeling and a healthy feeling for white people to have.”

So much for hipsterdom.
