In today’s NRO, Helen Rittelmeyer stumbles onto my turf with an investigation of Republicans’ failures to attract the Boston Irish. It’s a good read, but apparently Helen isn’t from Boston, because this mistake in the lede is fairly damning:
For most Americans, St. Patrick’s Day is a chance to pretend to be from the South End of Boston.
Hmm. Surely she means South Boston, which is distinctively Irish. If the South End — a different neighborhood entirely — is distinctively anything, it’s bohemian and, especially, gay.
Hey, it’s a free country, but as someone who’s Boston Irish the other 364 days as well, I’d just as soon put a stop to this.
