The Irish love their Guinness and corned beef....but their both bland without a touch of politics...There was lots of that tonight as the Irish Festival called "Watertown Goes Green" kicked off its 25th annual edition at the Dulles State Office Building.
The lure of all of the above brought the most Irish pol I know...former Mayor John Sullivan of Oswego...now retired and living near Albany where he still listens to the HOTLINE and calls into radio programs.
John should have been the Democratic nominee for Congress last year...but the deal was cut by Rahm Emmanuel and the White House to do otherwise, leaving Sully to lament if only Rahm had confronted him in the shower to tell him the gig was up.
Also in attendance was Congressional hopeful and City resident Matt Doheny.....Mr. Doheny had his high powered political posse in tow and was schmoozing his way through the growing throngs gathered around the makeshift bar in the lobby.
Lots of other pols there...Sheriff Burns who told me he is running and wondered if he will have an opponent.
Didn't see too many Democratic big guns...but they will be there I assume...Too many people gathered in on spot to ignore !
