Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

Everyone’s Irish Today . . .

. . . mainly because our Irish have become such good Americans. This is the argument persuasively made by Michael Medved in this thoughtful piece celebrating St. Patrick’s Day. Medved makes a very good case but then . . . there’s also green beer and good cheer. But, of course, good marketing is also very, very American.

It's interesting that some people who come to America are able to abandon their identity, while others cling to it tenaciously across many generations.

Why are the Irish and the Jews so different in that respect?

Because we are awesome . . .



Back to drinking . . .

Don't blame the Irish for green beer. I don't know who came up with the idea of dumping green food coloring into Budweiser, but I highly doubt it was someone from Ireland.

And don't get me started on "Killian's Irish Red."

Okay, but can we agree that Guinness is an unimpeachably good and authentic thing?
