    A Tea Partier decided to pick a fight with a foreign president. It didn’t go so well.

    Michael D. Higgins (who was elected president of Ireland last year) is fed up with over-the-top Tea Party rhetoric, and he isn’t afraid to show it. Listen to him call out radio host Michael Graham on everything from health care to foreign policy, and thoroughly and factually shut him down. And then call him a “wanker.” Do we really need to say more?

    Update: Check out what the Irish Times has to say about our write-up of this impressive smackdown (which is currently going CRAZY viral), complete with full audio of the debate.
