The Irishman and the Senator
Here's a couple of modest and unassuming guys who are proof positive that the opinions of the self appointed experts and professional savants aren't always right. The difference between them, of course, is temporal as well as physical, because Corrigan bet his life he was right and the experts were wrong. On the other hand, a lot of ordinary people here turned out for the Senator to confound the savants last January. Either way, the chutzpah is there in the smile and they'd likely find a lot of common ground.
Average Iowans who turned out to caucus for the Senator back in January might be forgiven if they give each other a nudge wherever they're watching the television and say "I guess we really started something here, don't you think?"
