The reason I ask is because this is just so damn satisfying to hear:
That was Michael Higgins, in 2010, when he was a member of the Irish parliament. He has since been elected president. And this is the Reader’s Digest Condensed Version of a truly epic debate. The guy he’s calling out on his bullshit (stick around to the end, and you’ll even hear the word wanker used most judiciously) is a teabagger radio host named Michael Graham — someone I never heard of till now, and never care to hear from again.
Michael Higgins, on the other hand, I could listen to all day and well into the night. He’s a man after my own heart, and the world could use more like him. In the meantime, I’m adding a new category for Ireland.
