From "political corpse" to "elephant in the room", Enda Kenny has been given more than his fair share of colourful descriptions since the dust settled on the election.
Despite initial murmurs over his leadership in the days following the result, these voices of discontent have become more silent as the talks with the Independents continue.
Various ministers have referred to Mr Kenny's "work ethic" and "stamina" displayed over the past 38 days, pointing out that the Taoiseach refused to even take a post-election holiday.
