As a man who will drink many liquid sammices tonight I approve of these shenanigans. As long as Obama wears an Orange shirt.

What an Irish Obama might look like...

Did Obama also meet with the two gay Irishmen, Patrick Fitzgerald and Gerald Fitzpatrick?

So is that technically a black & tan?

mmmm, black and tan...nom, nom, nom.
Is it too early to pour my first?

Phil Lynott? Awesome! I really loved Nazareth as a kid. "Jailbreak" was the first song I learned on the electric guitar.

No. You're thinking of Uriah Heap. They had a song called "April Wine" that was also popular at the time.

If I was President, I would definitely find excuses to hit up the world's great parties. Carnivale coming up? Time to go keep up Brazillian trade relations! Oktoberfest? Time to go honor the 67th anniverasy of "Ich bin ein Berliner!"

That was Krokus. They had that funny "If You See Kay" song too.

Since St. Patrick's Day is for Catholics, wearing orange can show your support for Protestants. Or... it can also symbolize support for thousands of years of oppression at the hands of the English.

My ancestry on my paternal grandfather's side is Northern Irish, so I should be wearing orange.

/mother's side is Catholic Italian
//she was adopted and her biological ancestry is German and Polish
//father's side is N. Irish and Welsh Protestant
///so that explains why I'm pale, occasionally ditzy, talk with my hands, stubborn and can hold a decent amount of alcohol

Irish, getting a kick, etc.

St. Patrick's Day in North America always felt more than a little bizarre, the big deal people make of Ireland's national holiday. Quebec's fete nationale, the feast of St. John the Baptist, is June 24th, for example, but even in New England, AFAIK (with its French Canadian heritage) you never see pubs serving blue beer on la St-Jean-Baptiste or making the barmen dress like lumberjacks or voyageurs. And, of course, the premier of Quebec has better things to do that day than visit the States.

God knows too the President of the United States has better things to do on the Fourth of July than visit the Taoiseach. Very strange.

/yes, I know it's a scam to sell beer
//not even that fond of Irish beer
///give me Maudite over Guinness any day

It's like wearing "Blood" colors on "Crip" turf, only it's a way of continuing a fight from 300 years ago.

Weird, I've only ever heard about wearing green on St. Paddy's, nobody has ever mentioned orange to me until this year. The more you know.

I don't know, but it could be the fact that there are a lot of 1st, 2nd, 3rd and so-on Irish immigrants living in the U.S.
Something, something, potato famine, something.

Every goddamn year, the Irish PM has nothing better to do on St. Patrick's Day than show up in DC with a bowl of clover.

This confused me the first thirty or so times I noticed it, until I learned that the Irish celebrate St. Patrick's Day with about the same fervor that Americans celebrate Arbor Day.

But what do I know, my pollack ass is drunk off green Schlitz. Hey, it's five o'clock somewhere, right? Actually, it's five o'clock in Ireland! WOOOOOOOO!

Oddly enough, when I lived in Ireland, there were more Polish speakers there than Gaelic speakers.

/Nasdrowia!

Just about ready for a nap after lunching on a huge boiled dinner and 5 Bulmers at the Hibernia in New Bedford, MA, myself...

I think the only thing green I'll be engaging with tonight is a fat joint and whatever Irish related crap they're showing on the History Channel. I don't really like going out on St. Patrick's Day anymore... The older I get, the less likely I am to be found in a large group of people.

Sláinte.
