Irish prez Michael D. Higgins puts vocal beatdown on Tea Party radio host

This link has gone viral. It had me

Michael D. Higgins (who was elected president of Ireland last year) is fed up with over-the-top Tea Party rhetoric, and he isn't afraid to show it. Listen to him call out radio host Michael Graham on everything from health care to foreign policy in this heated exchange from 2010. Trust me, you don't want to miss this one.

Too bad that liberals in the USA do not have the same courage to speak up like he, Tony Benn, and George Galloway have done.

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.

Yeah, but I'll bet he never demanded that the Bloody Brits renounce sovereignty ova so called Ulster Province (6 northern counties of the 32). Had "the IRA I mean Sinn Fein" candidate Martin Mcguinness won that ceremonial job, I'll bet he would have. Anyhow, Taoiseach (pronounced like tee-shock, Gaelic for Prime Minister) Enda Kenny has by far the more meaningful job there.

Yeah, but at least people actually like Michael D.

I heard this the other day. It sounded like the clip was edited somewhat to make it sound almost like one big monologue.

To piggyback on that, I'd never heard of Upworthy until this link was tweeted. I guess the next teen genius is about to make a load of cash.
