Yes, very ironic.  Similar to the irony of the smaller states believing
that our Electoral College method of presidential elections gives the
small state voters more voting power than the voters in the large states. 
D- The smallest States each have 3 Electoral College votes (minimum 1 U.S. 
Rep seat plus 2 U.S. Senate seats-- U.S.A. Constitution, Art. II, Sec. 1) 
---- even if some disaster were to reduce the State's population down to 1 

Thus the voters/ ECV ratios are much higher for many small States than in 
larger States (such as California).
