I'd suggest the Simpsons episode were homer invests all his money in pumpkins and thinks they'll peak around December is the better explanation

Leo Varadkar.
The shinners have been doing their utmost to get rid of Leo.
There he was, bold as brass, on the CB show last night.
Clear message to the shinners "I haven't gone away you know"

Ah yeah, Leo's a great one for getting the digs in against the 'Shinners'. Especially his "no Sinn Féin Protestants" claim.

Now if only he'd uphold the he law or be, you know, competent. Instead he's as crooked as a fiddler's wlbow with no achievements to his name, but a PR industry that lives off him.

Guys a spoofer, a grade A spoofer, with a PR budget other politicians would die for.

The day the world's media ran stories about how Ireland had the highest rate of infection in the world, the Irish Times had front page that 160 people emailed that Varadkar was right to ignore scientific advice. But yeah, Sinn Fein yada yada and ignore what an abject failure that corrupt spoofer is.

I'm still wondering what scientific advice NPHET were using when they told us all (Leo too, no doubt) that we didn't need to wear masks and stuck to that guidance for months. That advice resulted in people getting sick and dying.
Masks, Masks, Masks.
It's rich talking about Leo's budget given the amount of money the shinners have at their disposal.

My mother receives the Pfizer vaccine today. She's 78 litany of health conditions (as comes with the territory) I could bash the roll-out...I'll save that for the rant, as of now I'm just over the moon for her.

Great deflection tactic - just ignore all the shortcomings/failures of the Blueshirts and blame the "shinners" for everything.

Well deflected and once again deflecting onto Leo.
The shinners want rid of Leo for one very good reason.
He's their biggest threat to getting into power and they will do anything to take him out of the frame.

As long as there are marks for whom every failure can be compensated by shouting "Sinn Fein" government will never be accountable in this country
I could answer your question above, but you could too if you were trying to argue in good faith. You're not. No more than Varadkar does hen he introduces the.non sequitur of Sinn Fein every time his failure, incompetence, or corruption are pointed out.
