Boehner says, “No Guinness for You!”

Boehner Leaves U.S. Envoy to Ireland Off St. Patrick’s Guest List

Boo! What a killjoy. How does the U.S. ambassador to Ireland, Dan Rooney, get left out? He’s trimming back to give priority to members of Congress, but isn’t inviting the ambassador a no-brainer? Is it because he was appointed by President Obama? Rooney is a Republican. Please don’t tell me you’re setting an example for fiscal responsibility.

It’s a celebration, man. The first one thrown by Tip O’Neill was to ease partisan tension. No press is allowed (except for the entertainment portion this year) so people can have fun. You know, throw back a couple Guinnesses and watch some Lord of the Dance/Irish jig thing.

Everyone’s Irish on St. Paddy’s day, except for Ambassador Rooney, I guess. Maybe Rooney will use some of that good ol’ Irish diplomacy:

The ability to tell a man to go to hell so that he looks forward to making the trip.

Happy St. Paddy’s Day Everyone!!
