President Michael D Higgins

In news that is certain to stun
The president will once more run
But will anyone be
Taking on Michael D
Or will they think he’s already won?

John Moynes

    He’s the man who promised to serve only one term when he ran the last time.

    Another typical broken promise from a typical Numpty.

    1. Nigel

      He’s decided to put himself forward for seven more years of public service, at his age, and you think the promise somehow to our benefit rather than to his? He could retire in dignity and comfort, instead he’s volunteering to go back to work since there are no other particularly viable or attractive or serious candidates coming forward.

      That’s the Labour way unfortunately. Say one thing and do another. These boyos don’t even try to hide it anymore.

      I have some vestigial reserve of respect for the slack-jawed, vacant-eyed, cabbage-stinking Irish voter (somehow).

      Adam’s won’t even come close to half McGuinness’ vote.

      Can we make it a poetry competition? I like those:

      Roses are Red,
      Violets are Free,
      Who’ll be next President?
      Can it be Michael D?

        1. Owen

          Look at last time….. there were NO contenders. Sure Squee himself wasn’t even a contender. Sure Dana….. yes, DANA, was in the mix. And the other lad from the telly, the baldy fella, and then Sinn Fein even put in a horse.

          The there are a few mad things left about Ireland that I love, and one is the people that climb out of the grave for the potential to be president.

          So my top 5 of potentials he might face:
          1. Adams – has to be in there. He ‘coincidently’ is not head of Sinn Fein now.
          2. Daniel Day Lewis – yes, that is the randomness you get with this race.
          3. Bertie – he’ll reckon if Adams is going, he has a chance.
          4. Leo – he was my top dog last year, but he’s lasted longer then I thought in the ‘T’-Shirt.
          5. A member of bozone or westlife, or Bono.
          6. An ex-athlete
          7. An exported older business man.
