Irish Times Put downs

Derek Scally on Irish punditry on Germany:

For anyone who has any clue, it’s like watching a piano teacher who is one lesson ahead of the student.

Frank Callanan on Fintan O’Toole writing about the Seanad:

It is in the nature of proposals for constitutional change that they throw up confederacies of opposites. Fintan O’Toole has rallied to the defence of Seanad. However, with the monotonal acridity that marks his writing on post-crash Irish politics he also pronounces that “the Seanad stinks”. He is perhaps attempting to keep himself apart from Michael McDowell and the leadership of Fianna Fáil. The Seanad’s sudden friends are a rum lot.

LOL. The IT should do more of bitchy.
