Addendum: Irony is indeed dead. In my search of the Post's archives, I found that the Post recently published a letter to the editor from Jarmin. The operative for the theocratic Messiah who envisions a scenario in which those who carp about democracy will be "digested" writes:
We traditional conservatives do not necessarily disagree with promoting democracy, just the means being used to promote it. Attempting to impose our values at gunpoint while ignoring history, faith and culture is not a "moral vision" needed to "save traditional conservatism from its worst instincts"; it's just plain naive and stupid.
