Should Be Some St. Patrick's Day

Good luck to city councilor Bill Linehan, who will take his first try at hosting the St. Patrick's Day breakfast amid the Menino-Connolly tension; the Collins-Forry tension; the Lynch-MeehanMarkey [oops] tension... oh, and the Linehan-Lee tension.

I'm on record saying that the breakfast should be done away with once and forever. But I do have to say that for once it might be entertaining -- in that painfully uncomfortable "Curb Your Enthusiasm" way.

--Will there be jokes about Linehan chairing the redistricting committee and trying to use it to save his own ass from a rematch with Lee?

--Will Suzanne Lee speak? Will there be amazing GIFs of Linehan making faces behind her?

--Will John Connolly speak? Will he be funny (not something he's much known for in public speaking)?

--Will Tom Menino joke about Connolly? Will those not really be jokes?

--Will other mayoral wannabes (ie, everybody else on the dais) joke about Menino and Connolly?

--Will anyone make jokes about Menino's health? Will Michael Kineavy be seen writing their names down in a notebook?

--Will Linda Dorcena Forry speak? Will she make Irish jokes?

--Will Nick Collins speak? Will he make Haitian jokes?

--Will the other South Boston candidate for state senate, Maureen Dahill, be invited to speak?

--Will Marty MeehanEd Markey [oops again] speak? How much less funny will he be than Steve Lynch? And how will the Southie crowd treat him?
