I was hoping to see something about the Irish general election today on the Dish. It's not anywhere near the significance of Libya and the Arab world uprisings, nor as relevant to an American readership as Wisconsin and other states' attacks on unions. But it's important to us, significant to Europe, and one of the most successful political parties in the Western World is likely to be dumped on its arse. If nothing else, it's worth a mental health break.

PS: A suggestion for an alternative mental health break that is NSFW: Check out the Rubberbandits music video "I Wanna Fight Your Father". Limerick lads with their own style of, um, limerick. We might be having a tough time at the moment, but we haven't lost our creativity or sense of humour.
