Michael D. Higgins defending the minimum wage (and human dignity along with it).

He’s done it before, and apparently that was not a one-time shot.  Here’s another great clip of Ireland’s President, Michael D. Higgins.  Even his name is delightfully Irish.

Compare to Mitt Romney, or even our current President, to get a good glimpse at how politics in this country has lost any resemblance to humanity, and any of the passion that the privilege to govern should produce.  I want a candidate to be as angry as me.  I don’t want them talking about the suffering of anyone in calm, measured tones – I want them livid at the injustice.

Dear Ireland, what are the odds we could get your President in exchange for Barack Obama, Mitt Romney, and a few draft picks?
