Cowen’s F-word fails to resonate politically

SHOCK, horror, heavens above and save us from all harm, what is the world coming to — our Taoiseach uttered a profanity.

Where did he learn such language? Is that how they talk in Offaly?

What a missed opportunity for Enda Kenny — it is two weeks since Brian Cowen donned the Taoiseach’s robes and not a single resignation call from the Fine Gael leader. Maybe he is too busy being horrified by the Taoiseach’s earth-shattering aside (Great pity it is not on the Dáil record — I would love to see the official translation into Irish).
