When Ironic IS Ironic

I hate the word "ironic".
I almost never use it because I think it's dreadfully misused and overused.
But I do think it's ironic that the Democrat Party is now clearly split along lines of race, class, gender and age. Think about it: Liberal Dems enacted (and still enact) government policies, programs, mandates and incentives that attempt to apportion rights and privileges according to race, class, gender and age. And Democrat-backed activist judges are the first ones to legislate similar moves from the bench or uphold such divisive policies under the guise of fairness.
So now Democrats should not be surprised that their own party is split along these same lines. For generations they've been so busy labelling people and groups that this was the inevitable outcome. In the name of "equality" they Balkanized their own party and have nearly Balkanized the whole country. Among Democrats, women are voting for Clinton, men like Obama; younger people prefer Obama, older people like Clinton; lower income people lean to Clinton, upper income people like Obama and African-Americans are voting in huge numbers for Obama while whites seem to lean toward Clinton.
Now, all this leads me to ask: Is this the true fulfillment of the Democrat dream of equality? If so, it's one helluva mess.
