St. Pat’s Day a fed holiday? Gerry Connolly gets his April Fool’s on


“And I demand green beer bongs in the Members Dining...Hey, I’m talkin’ here!” (LARRY MORRIS/TWP)

Please note the date on the press release: April 1! HAR HAR.

The release says Connolly is introducing The Irish-American Recognition and Respect Act, and that “St. Patrick’s Day is the Holiest Day of the Year for me and thousands of fellow Irish-Americans...The idea that we’re all supposed to go to work and act as if it’s any other day is patently unfair.”

Well, he may have a point there.
