DUBLIN, Ireland, Nov. 4 (UPI) — An Irish betting company called Paddy Power is already paying out to gamblers who bet on President Barack Obama to win the U.S. election.
Despite polls showing Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney virtually tied, Paddy Power is paying out a total of more than $800,000 to those who bet on Obama, believing that he will win the race, the company said in a release.
A Paddy Power spokesperson said: “Romney gave it a good shot and is doing well in the popular vote, but we suspect he’s had his moment in the sun and is likely to be remembered more for his legendary gaffes than presidential potential. The overall betting trend has shown one way traffic for Obama and punters seemed to have called it 100 percent correct. Despite Romney appealing to the large evangelical and senior vote, America’s sticking with black and cool.”
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.
