You’re about as late arrival in Irish politics as Sarah Palin is in American politics, and both of you have the same tactic. The tactic is to get a large crowd, whip them up, try and discover what is the greatest fear, work on that, and feed it right back and you get a frenzy, and that leads you in time, then, to when you have in fact maybe one of the most gifted Presidents elected – though I happen not to agree with all his foreign policy – but you know, you regard, for example, someone who happens to have been a professor at Harvard as somehow [?] handicapped. You don’t find anything wrong with all this Tea Party ignorance that been brought all around the United States, which is regularly insulting people who have been democratically elected.
The president of Ireland, Michael D. Higgins, kicks Michael Graham’s (US right wing radio host) arse.
