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?
