Blog

The blog is like your neighborhood bar or pub.  It's where we tell the tales, sing the songs, chant the chants, and drink the drinks.  Everyone is on equal footing... we're never going high-hat

Going High-Hat (Throwing Your Hat Into the Ring):

Many Irish-American pols foolishly thought a top hat symbolized ethnic arrival in the USA. Like...look at me I made it!   While JFK came from a privileged family (both his father and grandfather Honey Fitz wore top hats) he was well aware of what it symbolized in the Irish-Catholic community.  He ultimately kept w/ tradition & wore it to his inauguration. When Mamie Eisenhower saw her husband Ike in a top hat for the inauguration she uttered the ethnic slur, "he looks just like Paddy the Irishman. "

The election of JFK meant that Irish-Americans were finally unequivocally American.  Although he fealt uncomfortable wearing the hat it did provide him with the opportunity to tip it to his father Joseph P.  Kennedy.
