Irish MP Clare Daly is my new hero. Don’t get the wrong idea, Ms. Daly is not a looker, in fact given the right make up she could play Mrs. Doyle in Father Ted. But I’m not always shallow. I have taken a shine to Ms. Daly because she is a living example of that rarest, most endangered of all species, a politician who speaks the truth.
In a polemical speech disguised as a five minute long question she laid into the Irish government and media’s “sycophantic fawning over the Obamas” and said it is hard to know which is worse, that or the outpourings of the Obamas themselves. After calling President Obama the hypocrite of the century and a war criminal she went on to say that the Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny and his government has presented Ireland as a nation of pimps, prostitutes and poltroons in turning a blind eye to Obama’s obsession with drones and arming terrorists while praising him as a man of peace.
The response of Irish Prime Minister, a smooth faced, slippery tongued scumsucker (aren’t all political leaders the same these days) was condescending and patronising but unfortunately in referring to the great victories for peace and democracy the American – European alliance had achieved in Iraq, Libya and Afghanistan he gave Ms. Daly the opportunity to come back, all guns blazing, (about seven minutes into the video) and complete the job of totally eviscerating him.
It’s great to watch and listen to.
