Measuring Mahoney

Niall Stanage, who sometimes contributes to the Observer, has a profile of Pirro strategist Kieran Mahoney in today’s Irish Echo.

Fred Dicker of the Post and Mike Long of the Conservative Party seize the opportunity to deliver some slaps:

“I have always found him to be a very secretive, not very candid guy, who is deeply suspicious of the press,” Dicker said. “He never gives me the impression that he is telling me the full story.”

“I think he’s shrewd and he’s quick and he knows his business very well,” said Long. “But I like to think that I am taking the longer view that you have to win the hearts of people over time by standing for particular beliefs. That’s where we separate. He thinks it’s all about winning today.” Measuring Mahoney
