Being snubbed in US is all this place deserves 

There is something toe-curling about this rush to America. First of all, the welcome wasn't exactly overwhelming. Martin McGuinness and Theresa Villiers met Drew O'Brien, an important State Department official, but he is in Ireland often enough. There was also talk of someone from the Vice-President's office going along, too. What there wasn't was the "money shot" of Obama shaking hands with our heroes. Not him, not Joe Biden, no pictures at all so far.
