So I Just watched Primetime's interviews of the Presidential candidates. I took a few notes on them while I watched. Notes that represent my instant reactions to who they are and what they said.
Michael D.Higgins: Respectable. Bit old but good 1st impression
Gay Mitchel: Twonk. Party Line parrot.
Martin McGuinness: Up himself. Terrorist.
Mary Davis: Pink Jacket. Do we really need another woman president? We have a Mayo toaiseach. That's enough.
Dana: Timmoy!!! Jesus, she actually sounds like a Stepford Wife. Her only weakness is crying. Apparently.
David Norris: Huge respect for the man. I was delighted when he announced when he was running. Pissed off that he was turfed out of the race. Its great that he got back in. C'mon, David. Sad that the whole interview was based around the feckin letters. Thats all it was. Everyone else got various questions. Another media attempt to assasinate Norris' character.
Sean Gallagher: Bald. Fianna Fail. Doesnt have a chance as far as I can see.
I hope to fuck that this campaign isnt yet another opportunity for RTE and the tabloids to drown Norris in horseshit.
