Figure of Speech: boner (BOEH-ner), the figure of unintended irony.
Not all figures work in your favor. Unintended irony is so prevalent that we actually had to name one ourselves. (We originally spelled it Boehner, to honor the great unintentionally ironic Member of Congress, but decided to simplify the spelling.)
Bush's boner comes after the administration spent $500 million to prop up the corrupt Palestinian regime, only to see voters throw the bums out and replace them with a group of terrorists.
That's the trouble with democracy. It won't do as it's told.
Snappy Answer: "They should follow America's example: become less democratic."
