I watched Tubridy's documentary last night about JFK's visit to Ireland in 1963 which was pretty entertaining having watched an old black and white RTE documentary on Youtube a while ago.
The documentary used a lot of rarely seen color film of the visit which really brought the era to life.
Tubridy seems to have let the mask slip and appears to be as we suspected a hopeless Kennedy phile - remember that Tubridy Tonight set with the wooden desk which looked suspiciously like Kennedy's desk in the oval office?
I think I remember Tubs released his choice of lounge lizard music collection - Sinatra, Dean Martin, Tony Bennett etc two Christmases in a row?
Tubridy curiously has a part on the left side of his head and wears slim fitting suits, skinny ties, a folded hanky in the breast pocket and large white cuffs?
Does he want to be a Kennedy?
Does he think he is a Kennedy?
Must be the 'y' at the end of his name makes them blood brothers?
Tubridy's adoration of Bill Clinton and his near deification of Obama - both men whose public image is clearly an attempt to ape Kennedy - surely bears this out.
Tubridy at points got almost tear eyed especially as he fingered a set of rosary beads which Kennedy wore in his pocket in Dallas, Texas.
Does Tubridy sit at home watching endless reruns of the Zapruder film?
Has his obssession taken over his life?
But most importantly - why now?
President Kennedy visited Ireland 47 years ago.
Surely such a lavish documentary, book and color newspaper supplement in the Indo would be more suited to the 50th anniversary?
