From the journalists of the Mumbai Mirror (with acknowledgments to HuffPost, which drew the clarification to the attention of The Scrapbook): "For the last 12 years we have been writing about the chief minister of Gujarat [Narendra Modi, likely India’s next prime minister] as being responsible for the happenings in his state. We called him a communalist [sic] with no grip on his administration. A man unable to curb violence against thousands of citizens, and who showed laxity in prosecuting its perpetrators. Now that he is clearly ahead in the polls we realise [sic] that we have been utterly mistaken. He is in fact a visionary with total grip on his administration. His revolutionary view on development has made life better for thousands of citizens. We are shocked by our misidentification and we offer Mr Modi our most sincere and unconditional hypocrisy [sic]."

Foot in mouth?

Don't you think it's more sarcasm?

Yeah, I read that as totally dripping with sarcasm.
