I see Dana has declared her intention to run for President. I hate her. She's a big poopy-head.

I'm afraid Micheál Martin is a bit of a poopy-head himself after today.

Today Mr Ó Cuív and Mr Martin were at one over the decision not to allow the party’s 33 TDs and Senators to back any candidate.

Interesting post by a Norris supporter on FB....

Francis Timmons
What a week i got told to fuck ‘’off’’ and ‘’stay with your pervert buddies’’ by a catholic priest in relation to my support for David Norris . Christians? don’t get me started everyone is entitled to their views but not to state the facts in a manner that only suits their beliefs , I should be shocked by a priest telling me to ''fuck off'' and by being called a ''perv'' but good catholic Ireland the land of Bigots is still alive and well... Let the people decide via the ballot paper...
Regards,

There are already enough loons in the Presidential race without adding Dana or Norris.

Ok, why not have a free for all and allow every gobshite in the country to run? That'll show respect to the post of President.

Not really on anyone's side here, but as someone who's spent more of their life outside Ireland than in it, may I ask why we show respect for a position where the main job is to show up at events and cut ribbons, yet they get about paid the same as the President of the United States, who is - you know - a real president. (when you tot up base salary and expenses; the US president has a much tighter expense allowance. Though, I suppose with all those free peanuts he gets on AF1, I'm being unfair...)

In a real democracy there should be a box for 'none of the above' if this vote then was higher than any other canidate, then a re-election with new candidates.

If it is a people's vote, it should be the people that put the candidates forward not local TD's putting one of their own forward, or just pretty much free for all 1st round, and top 5 into 2nd round.

Jedward could even enter, maybe could even make it into a TV-show 'The P-factor'
