RTE -- Taoiseach Bertie Ahern has announced that he will tender his resignation to President Mary McAleese on 6 May.
*Of course it's unfair and empirically invalid to attribute Bertie's downfall to his 8th St Patrick's Day with Bush (unlike others in the congaline of suckholes who paid the electoral price). But when did unfairness and invalidity ever stop Bush?
UPDATE: Maybe it's the personality type that Bush attracts. Sarkozy is in trouble.
