There's no one as Irish as Barack O'Bama!
Well, Obama actually has as strong a claim to being an Irish-American as he does to being an African-American. You could look it up. Honestly, the whole "first African-American president" schmaltz is a bit hard to take. For God's sake, his ancestors owned black slaves in the county I live in! You could look that up too.

sarsfield,Will he have to pay reparations to himself?
anonymous - quite likely he will.Actually, I got to thinking of what a moment it will be next February 12th when Pres't. Obama comes here to Kentucky for the bicentennial at Abe Lincoln's birthplace. The first African-American president will no doubt give a memorable speech at the birthplace of the Great Emancipator. The reality is, however, that, unlike the vast majority of African-Americans, Pres't. Obama has zero slave ancestors but has slave-owning ancestors who lived just up the road from Abe's birthplace. Only in America.
Actually the early Irish immigrants had less value than slaves. They were abused but couldn't be sold.
