John Drennan: Kenny's war dogs have Labour by tail

I AM sorry if my response to the arrival of Mr Kenny's bright new Government of Stepford wives (and of course you too, Mr Gilmore!) has been somewhat chilly.

The problem, you see, lies in my personal selfishness. Over the last three years, we have been dealing with a government of political dysfunctionals who spent their time fighting, snarling and plotting against each other. And that was just the Fianna Fail members of the Cabinet.

Meanwhile outside of this cocktail of stupidity, excess, venality (and there appears to have been plenty of other cocktails flying around too) Mr Cowen was best known for being, in the words of Jay Leno, "a drunken moron".
