The Patty Band-Wagon

It would seem that Carson Daly is moving from the media sphere into the political arena with his new campaign (in partnership with the Guinness beer company) to make March 17th, St. Patrick's Day, be recognized as a national US holiday. Proposition 317 needs 1 million signatures by midnight March 16 in order for Congress to take the matter under consideration ... which is why Carson led a rally of like-minded supporters in Herald Square, NYC earlier today ... here are a couple of pics:

Now, as far as political campaigns go, I'm not sure this one should be really high on the list (after all, we still need to figure out the whole Clinton vs. Obama matter) but I, for one, am all for St. Patrick's Day becoming a national holiday ... after all, couldn't we all use another day off from work? Well, not me really, since I blog every day of the year ... but still, isn't it high time that a day like St. Pat's be recognized in an official capacity?

Yeah, it's about time ... so I signed. If you would like to join the fight, head on over to to add your name to the list. Because the campaign is sponsored by Guinness, I think you have to be at least 21 years old to sign ... but we're all adults here, right? Woot! [Source]
