Of course Obama's Irish!

Reader comment on item: Why I Am Not Writing About Iran
in response to reader comment: OBAMA IS NOT IRISH

Mr. Cameron, Barack Obama is indeed Irish. He has to be. If he isn't, he puts himself in danger of impeachment for violating Amendment 58 of the US Constitution, which says that every Democrat politician from a major urban area must be Irish Catholic, but for birth control, abortion, and the whole sexual revolution. Obama's a Democratic politician from a large urban area in the USA, so he has to find some way of being Irish Catholic--and at the same time, for abortion, homosexual marriage, and the whole sexual revolution--regardless of his actual ethnic heritage.

I'm sure that even Rod Blagojevich found some way of being Irish Catholic. If you are an Assyrian member of the Church of the East or some Modern Syriac-speaking Evangelical congregation and you want to run for office in some major urban area in the USA, you need to find some way to make yourself an Irish Catholic. If you are an Ashkenazi Jew and running as a Democrat in a major urban area of the USA, you must pretend that the Yiddish your grandparents are speaking is actually Irish Gaelic. If you are of Chinese descent and running as a Democrat in a major urban area, you must pretend that when your Buddhist Grandma is burning incense to Guan Yin Pu Sa, your Grandma's maiden name Lee must actually be from County Roscommon rather than Taishan, Guangdong, and her religious statue is the Vrigin Mary. It's an important part of the job description.

Bobby Jindal serving as Governor of Louisiana--son of Hindu immigrants who became a Catholic (which means Irish in the USA) but ran as a Republican and an enemy of the sexual revolution, well, I bet that he's the butt of many a joke in Pakistan, being taken as living proof that every Hindu or Sikh Sujinder is stupid. You see, therefore Obama is also Irish.
