Seems our ex-Taoiseach, Brian Cowen, has decided to go back to school. And where was it that he chose to attend as a mature student?…..none other than the prestigious Stanford University in sunny California. Looking as fat and useless as ever, Cowen was seen clutching his school bag walking from the campus car park on his way to class. No doubt his Mammy bought him a fancy new lunch box, pencil case and covered all his books for him before he arrived on his first day. I wonder if he’ll piss off anyone enough that they’ll stop him in the playground and threaten to beat him up if he doesn’t hand over his lunch money.
I don’t quite understand what his end game is though. Here’s a man who has left politics, is quite rightly vilified and hated across the country because the fat incompetent and incessantly drunk fuck-wit, who hadn’t a clue how to run a country, and practically single handedly bankrupted the entire country and he now suddenly feels the need to attend an “Executive Education Programme” which is designed for the movers and shakers global companies, government agencies, and non-profit organisations. What does he hope to get out of it? Who the hell would hire him, that’s what I’d like to know.
I’d love to be a fly on the wall though, when he’s sat next to someone in class and is being admired for his new Justin Bieber pencil case and asked “So what is it that you do?”…..Would he give them a honest answer and tell them that he was the residing head of state who sold his country down to river to the ECB, IMF and Ze Germans, or would he just meekly reply “I was in politics but am retired now?”
More importantly, when questioned, Cowen refused to elaborate who’s paying the $58,000 fee for this six week course. Given that he got a handsome retirement payout of €213,000 on top of an annual pension amounting to €158,000 I think he could easily afford it, but I would not be surprised if it became known that it was being funded by the Irish taxpayer in some way, shape or form.
My only ending remark is God help the poor bastard who thinks that hiring this fucking imbecile is a good thing and will help his/her business. You have been warned!!
