While we are talking about the presidency - and breathing a sigh of relief that Gaybo is not going to run for the Aras (Irish president's house) after all - now we can concentrate on Dana.
Dana, younger readers might not know, won the Eurovision for Ireland back in 1970 with a song called "All Kinds of Everything". It was considered a great achievement at the time by the powers that be, rather than an embarrassment. See below.
If Dana had stuck to singing twee songs, it might just have been forgiveable. Since 1970, however, the Derry warbler has metamorphosed into a right-wing, anti-choice, Catholic "values" conservative. She did not manage to get a nomination for the last election, in 2004, and only got 13.5% of the vote in 1997.
A reader, John, sent in this link which shows Dana singing on a far-right US religious channel called EWTN. In the video - which is probably the most excruciating I have ever seen - Dana intercedes in a duet with a rather portly Jesus, playing the role of a woman who has had an abortion. It is so bad, musically, that Andrew Lloyd Webber might be envious.
Dana, of course, believes Irish women should not have the option of termination in their own country, and should be compelled to get on the boat/plane to England or Holland. That way she - and her ilk - can delude themselves that abortion does not exist in Ireland.
Have a look at this video, but have a sick bag handy.
More worryingly, John also sent a link to a site called protectthepope.com which features a Facebook campaign by an 18-year old who supports Dana's presidential campaign on the basis that she will "bring this country back to its golden age"-
What??? With 18-year-olds like that, what does the future hold?
Tomorrow belongs to them.
They are welcome to it, the arseholes.
