"TRACING HIS ROOTS: President Barack Obama [proving again there in nothing too fake, phony and fraudulent for him to take part in. -- Ed] jokingly swung a hurley, a stick used in the sport of hurling, as Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny looked on in Dublin Monday. Mr. Obama, whose great-great-great-grandfather on his mother’s side is Irish, is on a four-nation European tour." -- Photos of the Day: May 23 - Photo Journal - WSJ

Oh, why must we care? Does anyone care? I have spent the last two years cultivating a malicious indifference to the One and they who care so much. I can't seem to get away from them. They are everywhere.

For a good time google "No One's as Irish as Barack Obama".

Obama don't need no stinkin' hurling stick. He makes me hurl just lookin' at him.

It is called a hurley. Hurling came about as a way to practice warfare when the English would not allow the Irish to own swords. You gotta see it played to believe.

I am turning in my Irish card for the present.

I believe the term is 'smoked Irish'.

Who will the first to toss out the historically valid term "black Irish" and get called a racist?

How about me?

Zero44 is no black Irish...He ain't got no Dago heritage.

Obama 2008-2012: He Laughed. He Cried. He Hurled. (And so did you.)
