Making a journalistic mountain out of a political molehill

We like our little political dramas. Now and then, our politicians and the media create an eruption of amateur theatrics. So, when one of Enda Kenny's underlings made a remark about how long Enda intends to remain leader of Fine Gael, well - we couldn't resist making a fuss.
It is, after all, the silly season.
The politicians are away on holidays. Even their PR people, advisers and consultants are short of any worthwhile political gossip to feed the media machine.
