Those Bertie Posters

There’s been a fair bit of comment online recently about the Fianna Fail posters of our esteemed Taoiseach Bertie Ahern.

Personally I was furious about the posters! I mean they are so obviously falsified; do they think the electorate is so thick that they’d fall for such amateur photo editing?

Come on guys this is Ireland in the 21st Century. You simply can’t pull the wool over the voter’s eyes and expect to get away with it anymore. Will you ever cop on to the fact that your electorate is now a sophisticated and savvy group that know when it’s being sold short.

We’ll have to wait a few more weeks to see if the election prospectus is also a patched together bunch of falsehoods.

Finally there is a lighter side to this story over on The Snackbox Diaries.
