I think this deserves a thread of its own

(just in from NEWSTALK---)
The Taoiseach has described as “ridiculous” and “uncalled for” claims that he was either drunk or hungover on a radio interview this morning.

Brian Cowen is under fire after his appearance on national radio when he even referred to the Croke Park Agreement as the Good Friday Agreement.

The interview was conducted at the Fianna Fáil Parliamentary Party think-tank in Galway.

<MOD> Here is the audio of the interview

Good God just go now. The Irish taxpayer promises to make good on that gold plated pension of yours so you can booze away in peace up in Offaly....................for at least the next three or four months before the free money tap curtosy of the EU/Taxpayer is firmly turned off.

You are a liability.

I heard his reference to the Good Friday agreement this morning when he meant to say Croke park agreement.
Wtf?
This gives a useful insight into the workings of his cerebral networks.

In vino veritas as they say.
I presume this denial of being drunk will be across the wires by now, helping investors decide to choose reland as a location for doing business.

I'm not surprised that several political parties are on election footing.

I think the GE is nearing....

RTE were incredibly quick with the dropping of the word drunk, replacing first with hungover, then popping scare quotes around 'hungover'

Nice to see the speed at which their embedded spin doctors come to life.

In fairness, stop being pedantic...it was a slip of the tongue. If you listened to it he said 'Good friday' and then backtracked. It was a non-event - even Cathal didn't make much of it.

Dramatise much?

Looks like he opted for the Whiskey bottle only and refused the revolver
