T. Tiernan shocked us with his insane anti-semitic rant (or comedic disaster) at Electric Picnic. As I highlighted here, the real issue is why anyone was laughing at this horror-story.
Of course, no-one in RTE should have been surprised. He gets them into hot water every time they bring him on.
So how does RTE react to Tiernan latest and greatest fiasco?
They reward him with a one-hour Christmas special

What could RTE possibly imagine will happen? Which aspect of Christmas will Tiernan transform with his incisive wit? The massacre of the innocents, perhaps?
Are we so shell shocked by child abuse, NAMA, FAS and all the rest that we will sit there at Christmas and take whatever Tiernan serves up to us?
OK, we can switch over to something interesting or amusing but what about that €160 I just paid RTE?
