O’Bama O’Pony Party

~♣ ♣ ♣ ♣ ♣ ♣ ♣ ♣~

O’Leary, O’Reilly, O’Hare and O’Hara,

there’s no one as Irish as Barack O’Bama.

From the old Blarney stone, to the green hills of Tara,

there’s no one as Irish as Barack O’Bama.

~♣ ♣ ♣ ♣ ♣ ♣ ♣ ♣~

See Barack dance a jig!

As you may already know, this catchy tune was an Internet phenom.  It is also responsible for the most visited essay in Docudharma history: I KNEW he was Irish!* by ctrenta.

On the link above you will find an earlier version of the song – it has more than 500,000 views on YouTube.  A few days ago the band, Hardy Drew and the Nancy Boys, contacted us and requested that we update with the new version (same as the one above) in honor of O’Bama’s victory.

As for our traffic, the graph below shows the number of daily visitors over the last 30 days.  I did this screen capture from SiteMeter at 2 PM today (11/07/08).  The dotted line shows our average visits for a few months prior (around 700-800/day).  On Oct 22nd I started noticing a big increase in the number of visits on our site. The bulk of the traffic is going to ctrenta’s essay.   This peaked the day after election day and is still generating thousands of page views.    I am astounded.  

*For the record, O’Bama’s great-great-great-grandfather, Fulmouth Kearney, was from the small village of Moneygall, between Dublin and Limerick.  He emigrated to the US in 1850 when he was just 20 years old and eventually settled in Ohio.  

~~ Begorrah don’ be rec’ing the O’Pony Party.  This be O’Pen Thread.  ~~
