Reactions and Erections
If it would have been for the Mid-Island and South Shore,
we would have
made history in electing a moose hunting barby doll as vice president.
||And more than that: The South Shore would have voted for Bob Straniere,
a former hot dog king, for Congress. A candidate that hasn't been
endorsed by a single Republican, and that "brought nothing
but grief to the Republican Party," according to former Borough President Guy
Molinari. "I’d pay for a one-way ticket for him to go any place in the
country just to get [him] out of our hair."
The paper (The Observer) also says Straniere is accused, in his previous incarnation
as an Assemblyman, of being "unresponsive to constituents, distracted
by countless lawsuits filed against him by former business partners,
and rarely actually in the district."
"Mom, it's the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms!"
Here's what public officials on Staten Island had to say about John McCain's selection of Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate:
local Republican Party member and political junkie:
"I think it's terrific. She's a completely new and fresh face, she has a compelling story, and she is about as far from Washington as you can get."
||City Councilman James Oddo,
"I think it's fascinating...It creates a buzz and a draw that without it, we wouldn't have had for the Republican Convention."
||City Councilman Vincent Ignizio,
"I think Governor Palin's pick as Vice President nominee will propel the Republican party to victory this November. Staten Islanders in particular will relate to her as the do-it-all woman -- a mom, wife, public servant and prudent fiscal manager. Her experience as the chief executive of a state, and core conservative philosophy will be a great asset to Senator McCain and assure a victory for us in 67 days This is truly historic time for our party and country."
Party in Kenya...
And remember this snap shot, when ol' McCain almost fell off stage after the last debate. There are some hilarious photo-shopped versions on WFMU's blog ( I've posted one too): http://blog.wfmu.org/freeform/2008/10/photoshop-conte.html
this was one of my favorites.
