President Barry O'Bama is said to be excited over Boston Irish plans to host a 'big homecoming' for their prodigal son as he returns to Martha's Vineyard for the third consecutive August 'family' vacation.
The homecoming will even out do O'Bama's triumphant return to Moneygall, Ireland, where his 'grandfather's grandfather's " roots were traced on mother Anne Dunham's side.
"It's a great day for the Irish, " according to Party Organizer "Patches" Kennedy, son of former Massachusetts icon Ted "Gimlet" Kennedy, since deceased, pickled, and thankfully laid to rest causing a host of harassed barmaids to breathe a sigh of relief.
While O'Bama's Irish origins are cloudy, it is said he is a member of the "Black Irish" gene pool due to folklore revolving around 'dark skinned, dark eyed" Spanish traders known to have travelled to Ireland in years gone by and leaving a living legacy after nights of pub crawling, dart throwing, roof thatching and sheep dipping revelry.
O'Bama's vacation is not without controversy, coming in the midst of a 'debt ceiling' crisis, $4 gasoline, unemployment pushing 10%, and a complete lack of confidence amongst the business community for a rebound in the economy.
O'Bama's mantra of 'shared sacrifice' rings hollow to many in Massachusetts, coming after Michelle's $800,000 trip to Africa a few short months ago, and Barry's $35,000 a plate dinner for his 50th Birthday hosted by Mayor Rahm Emanuel in Chicago.
The President's clan will be holed up on the 28 acre Blue Heron Farm which features its own pool, boathouse, basketball court, horses, and most importantly for Michelle, its own apple orchard from which she can pluck healthy treats for her two daughters.
There is already some controversy arising over the guest list.
DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz (DWS) has not been invited, but has been replaced by Barbra Streisand as part of a strategy to woo back Jewish voters, and more importantly donors.
Israeli sympathizers have been recently dismayed over members of their own faith, i.e.: A. Wiener, Barney Frank, and DWS, who are said "not to be the most ideal role models for Israel," according to Rabbi Ishmael Ben Gurion, cultural attache to Washington and a Tea Party Supporter.
To reemphasize his multi cultural approach for the festivities, and cover all bases, Whoopi Goldberg is said to be on the list, but will not be at the head table, assigned to
'working the crowd' for donations for the 2012 campaign. Whoopi said she doesn't feel slighted, "oy vey, Bro, I'm down wit dat...I know where he be comin' from!"
Scribes have been wondering why O'Bama continues to vacation in the same places, Hawaii and Martha's Vineyard being the most noted.
Said White House Press Secretary Jay Blarney (sic), "the President is not showing partiality on his vacation sites. He did look at the White Mountains, but decided he's wait till they change its name. He wanted to try Vermont, but Bernie Sanders hasn't been able to rename downtown Rutland "Red Square" yet. Newark has too many brothers and no money, Detroit looks like Beirut, and California is way to gay, even for him. Forget Texas, Arizona, and Utah....too many Christian Zealots!"
Said one of the few conservative inhabitants of the island, identified only as "Bud", "I can understand him going to Hawaii, but why here? He's certainly no True Irishman! He can't hold his liquor, his blood's too thin, can't stand the cold, and he can't swim...wonder if he's going to visit Chappaquiddick?"
