'Moaning Minnies' will never be happy

Before and during the election, we were constantly reminded that there are not enough women in the Dail.
However when the votes were counted it was discovered that, once again, women voters opted mainly for male politicians despite having a choice, and now when our new Taoiseach appoints a woman minister to his Government the 'Moaning Minnies' are complaining that she should have been made finance minister.
If he had appointed 10 female ministers they'd still be cribbing that the Taoiseach should be a woman as well.
