So not Irish. I come from people who were oppressors of the Irish.

Mornin' all.

I tried to finish watching that whole press conf last night, but got both annoyed and distracted. That tag-team argument he had with Karl and Acosta was a journalism geek's dream to watch, even if it was dreadful.

Top o the day! I'm not wearing green or any shamrocks because I thought the new budget director Mick Mulvaney wore enough shit yesterday at the press conference - where he said Meal on Wheels was unnecessary - for all Irish Americans.

WE GET IT MICK, YOU'RE IRISH! Jeeebus.

Well, I can trace my family back to an island, just not that one.

I'm off to camp this evening, so I don't even get whiskey.

So, Trump is threatening N Korea with our SoS asleep at the wheel. REALLY.

it has largely fallen on the South Korean press to report on the state of the negotiations, and how the U.S. and South Korea are planning to move forward together. It is through The Korea Herald, then, that it was revealed Tillerson cut short his meetings with South Korean leaders because he was too tired.

Good morning, bloggers!

As for St.. Patrick's day, my maternal grandmother was half-Irish, half-Scottish. So, I am nominally one-eighth Irish. (I tend to look like the Celtic side of my family, I am told.)

The White House issues hafl-assed apology to Great Britan.

Aaaand now they're walking it back,
UPDATE: The White House is already changing the story. Apparently, there was no apology. According to the Washington Post’s Abby Phillip, Spicer and McMaster now say they that the inclusion of Napolitano’s story at the briefing was not meant to be an endorsement. Spicer was simply highlighting that there were reports of wiretapping.

Another member of the Trump Admin, another scandal. Not the same clan as yours truly, but the name is close enough to be confused that way (I know, I dealt with it all thru my childhood lol)

Also, another person of Irish descent. The Hartley clan in my blood is screaming right now.

I am not surprised. We have not reached 100 days yet, and already a few people have resigned or had to step away from potential positions.

Well, happy Evacuation Day, at least.

Two different ones, actually if I am not mistaken. One for each parent.

I hope to celebrate it in the Boston area. I am seeing a lot of job postings in your area. (I will have to figure out housing, but at this point a job in the Tau Ceti system would be an option.)

Florida government offices close for Confederate Memorial Day, which is the last Monday in April. Why is this still a thing?

I fear that some people in the South still think of the Civil War as the War of Northern Aggression. Perhaps as generations pass, this belief will pass.

Governor Scott may as well go and lay a wreath at Bitburg, or something.

Trevor TImm of the Guardian on the divide in the Democratic Party over the role of Bernie Sanders and his supporters. I think that we need to have a more progressive agenda, and be willing to challenge the GOP everywhere.

He is so uncomfortable with diplomacy unless it's one of his business partners or cronies. Whether it's the Saudi Royal Family or his butt buddy Farange.
