Then I come home and watch the presidential debate, and that pride just evaporates. I am embarassed that this jackass from Texas is the supposedly most powerful man in the world. Kerry isn't much better (although he is a better debater and less of a weasel when he speaks). These guys are so busy pointing fingers at each other and tearing each other down that they aren't saying anything positive. They don't have anything to offer America. This just strengthens my resolve to want to move to Ireland.
PS - I promise to write about that last sentence in detail at a later date. In brief: if all goes well and Kat and I work our asses off, we will be moving to Ireland by spring 2006.
