Irish eyes are smiling.
The major shocker going into the second presidential debate is not that Mitt Romney outperformed Barack Obama, but that since the first debate Birthers, finally out of any other credible option, are now accusing Obama of being Irish and of eliminating the apostrophe to hide the real place of his birth.
In his debate, Vice President Biden was finally able able to shed light on the real first name of Mitt Romney: Mitt is a nickname for Malarkey, his birth name, because you need a “mitt” to pick it up and dispose of it.
It was also revealed that Lance Armstrong was hired as a consultant in the first debate and advised Mr. Romney to sneak lots of Red Bull.
That both candidates may indeed be Irish is the just the latest in the firsts for this presidential contest. This is the first major party ticket to have no Protestant on it, to have two Catholics for Vice President and a Mormon for President.
And that’s not counting what may yet be revealed about the fate of Big Bird and his buddy Kermit the Frog, famous for crooning “It’s Not Easy Being Green.”
