The Irish economy is in quite a state, and according to Labor TD (that’s MP in Irish parlance) Pat Rabbitte, some specific people are to blame for Ireland’s plight.

One of them just happened to be right next to him on Thursday’s edition of “RTÉ News Prime Time,” and one Pat Carey, who’s also a TD as well as minister for equality and Gaeltacht affairs, thus got the full blast of Rabbitte’s outrage on national television. “You ought to be ashamed to show your face in this studio,” Rabbitte begins, and it only gets worse for Carey from that point on. Someone on this side of the pond ought to take a page from Rabbitte’s playbook, and soon. –KA
