O'bama The Irishman

Well, O'bama is Irish.  I had no idea.  I guess this news was already out there, but somehow I missed it.

You'd think O'bama and Sean Hannitty would get along better.




REMARKS BY THE PRESIDENT AT THE FRIENDS OF IRELAND LUNCHEON

...This tradition, as most of you know, was begun by Tip O'Neill and Ronald Reagan, two men who agreed on their love of all things Irish -- including a good scrum. But they also knew how to set aside time just to enjoy one another's company. President Reagan himself said that the two men could be friends after six o?clock. And I imagine they also made a midday exception for this luncheon every year...

...Today is a day we speak with pride of being Irish-American -- whether we actually are or not. (Laughter.) I am pleased to say that I can actually get away with it, and I've got the Taoiseach here to vouch for me. Prime Minister Cowen was born in County Offaly, and I can trace my ancestry on my mother's side there as well. I believe it was my great-great-great-great-great grandfather. (Laughter.) This is true. (Laughter.) He was a boot maker, if I'm not mistaken.
Someone actually discovered my Irish lineage when I was running for President, and my first thought was why didn't anyone discover this when I was running for office in Chicago? (Laughter.) I would have gotten here sooner. (Laughter.) I used to put the apostrophe after the "O" but that did not work. (Laughter.)...

He must have had a shot of Jameson before this speech because he usually isn't very funny.

I must say, that was pretty funny...

And Rahm Emanuel is a fucking evil leprechaun.

Yeah, if O'bama actually started hitting the Scotch harder, we might have a good President on our hands.

And, of course, he might kill Rahm Emanuel.
