Even the CBC recognizes that it is "ironic" for leftist protesters to target president George Bush with claims of causing the "death of liberty" while Russian dictator Valdimir Putin is an available target.

While Bush and Putin were all smiles before the cameras, protesters clogged the streets around the Bush seaside home for what they called a "Death of Liberty" funeral.

The demonstrators unleashed a colourful parade of fluttering banners that read "Stop the gangsters" and "Democracy has ended" — all of it ironically aimed not at the increasingly autocratic Russian leader, but at his American host.

"Ironically"? "Ridiculously" would also work.
