Crazy Horse Lenihan escapes media controversy

category international | arts and media | other press author Sunday September 19, 2010 15:33author by Hibernian Scribe - Freelance Translator Report this post to the editors

Science Minister Conor Lenihan disinvites himself from Specious Nonsense book launch

Conor Lenihan was due to launch John J.May's self-published book The Origin of Specious Nonsense which challenges the theories of Charles Darwin.

Conor Lenihan T.D. is a joker and occassional Irish Minister for Science who is constantly surrounded by controversy (Leo Varadker Heil salute and the Kebabs remark to Joe Higgins) and was fortunate to withdraw from this book launch which could have made him look very foolish indeed.

Tanaiste Mary Coughlan T.D. arrogantly made the gaffe of ascribing the Theory of Evolution to Albert Einstein, it was in fact Charles Darwin. Mary Coughlan is the Irish Minister for Education.

Conor Lenihan T.D. made the 'very Irish' decision to to un-invite himself from John J.May's The Origin of Specious Nonsense book launch and thereby gave undeserved publicity to this schmozel.

An Taoiseach Brian Cowen T.D. gave his arrogant, dismissive and insulting interview to the Irish people last Monday thereby removing the limelight from under achieving Minister Lenihan T.D..

Crazy Horse Lenihan is well named. Is he both daft and lucky? Are we, the Irish public, prepared to tolerate these under achievers?

Crazy Lenihan is more fitting than Crazy Horse Lenihan. The orginal Crazy Horse was a great man of high virtues. Lenihan on the other hand is just a corrupt tick who's only interest is making lots of money and nothing else.
