Juxtaposition

Sundancecracker over at The Last Refuge has this observation:

February 2nd 2012, Groundhog Day and the State of the Union address will occur on the same day.  This is an ironic juxtaposition of events.

One involves a meaningless ritual in which we look to an increasingly insignificant creature of questionable intelligence for prognostication.

The other involves a groundhog.

Why couldn't I have been so observant?
