Please, I beg you, listen to this audio of the President of Ireland.

It is awesome, truly! also it is pretty damned funny.

He smacks Michael Graham (US right wing radio host) upside the head so hard he's probably still seeing stars.

The President concludes his rant with "So be proud to be a decent American instead of just a wanker whipping up fear!"

He blasts the tea party, Sarah Palin and right wingers who want to destroy healthcare for Americans.

I apologise for not having the full transcript for those who cannot play the vid.

Here is is a link to the full programme. Well worth a listen.

I think America may have competition for the coolest President.

1:13 PM PT: Rec list, WOW didn't expect that being in competition with Orly and the Gang of Nitwits.

So glad you liked it, thanks muchly.


2:28 PM PT: dmhlt 66 has posted a goodly portion of the transcript in the comments for those who cannot hear the tape.http://www.dailykos.com/...

Puffin in the comments also would like me to point out this was recorded in 2010, as it was only just posted on you tube I still thought it was worth hearing and getting it out there (hint)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
