(Brian Cowen at Sen. Kennedy's funeral)
Did anyone else notice that Ireland - the birthplace of the Kennedys - was left out at the welcome speech in the church today?
The priest acknowledged the representatives from Britain and Northern Ireland but not a word about Ireland.
Thankfully, Kennedy's son Ted Kennedy Jnr, did his best to rectify the error when he welcomed "the Taoiseach."
Nothing else. No name. No "Brian." No "Cowen". (Or Cowan as American papers insist on mis-spelling it.)
God only knows what the non-Irish thought about that.
What did they think the priest was referring to? A tea sock? A tea shock?!!
