O'bama Wins Ireland

For those of us whose ancestors hail from Ireland, it's not surprising that Obama has a emerged there as the popular front runner for race for prodigal Irish American son.  (See 1992:  Bill Clinton for President and Irish American Idol.)

And since politics is as popular in Ireland as hurling -- and I don't mean the kind that happens after too much time at the pub -- an all out celebration after the Iowa caucus results was sure to be found in Ireland.  In this case, the party politics party was in full swing in central Ireland, in County Offaly, where O'bama's great-great-someone-or-other came from.  

Turns out, Obama is as Irish as I am.
