There's Something About Mary ...... O'Rourke

There really is something about Mary (O’Rourke, that is)!

Not only is she the Mammy of the Dail, she is one of the funniest, most honest and most carefree women you could ever hope to meet.

So it was no wonder that she gave such a revealing interview to a music magazine about her life. It was warts’n’all covering everything from gynecologists to sex and from sexism in Fianna Fail to refusing to venture back on the dating scene eight years after the death of her husband.

Mammy Mary has been in the wars in the past. Remember her infamous ‘working like blacks’ comment? Well she certainly has no regrets.

“There was nothing wrong with that now. They are all talking about Obama being black now as if it was white, you know? ‘They work like blacks!’ Of course they do! They were worked very hard,” she said.

But Mamma Mia - here she goes again, and this time it is Enda Kenny that is the subject of her musings.

“I think he’s a bit foolish. He might be politically clever, but I don’t think he’s intellectually clever,” she said.

Well if leading a party that gained 20 extra seats in the last general election as well as leading a party that is riding high in the opinion polls is not intellectually clever, Mammy Mary’s standards must be very high!

Hmmm...I wonder if she had anyone in mind who is the opposite when talking about "...might be politically clever, but I don’t think he’s intellectually clever," could it be the nephew, young master Brian Lenihan? Might it be that she fears that he is intellectually clever but just not politically clever.
