Another crook returned to office

The people get whom they want – Charlie Rangel returned to office – Hey, he was stealing Whiteys’ money”. For so long as the black community won’t hold its politicians to normal moral standards, they’ll be considered a joke by people like me. They have to be counted as a voting block, but as a group to listen to, forget it.

UPDATE: Washington D.C.’s black voters just tossed out their mayor (also black). He was considered to be a man who’d sold out to whites. So far as I can tell, his crime was that he’d focused on school reform. Hey, this is the city that re-elected Marion “Crack-head” Berry after he served his prison term.

Can this be right?

Idiot Koran burner fired by New Jersey Transit. I’m just guessing here, but were a muslim employee to burn an American flag, I’d bet he’d get a pass on free speech grounds.

Tea Party candidates win

Delaware and New York. Republican National Committee says it won’t support O’Donnell, winner in Delaware. Well frug you boys – you wanted a Rhino, you didn’t get him, and if you abandon your voters’ choice, then it will be you who are abandoned. Who needs Republicans?

UPDATE: Sore loser – Castle won’t endorse O’Donnell.

And after Stamford, he’s headed for Conyers Farm! Fudrucker will be attending – he’s sworn not to take photographs but I’m looking for my Tony the Tiger spy camera which will attach to a tie, so we’ll see if we can’t get pics.

Beach House Cafe Insta Review

Juts back from Old Greenwich’s Beach House Cafe – we made our BBC friend, Peter Taylor, buy us dinner. The fish (cod) served up as fish and chips was excellent – ironically Peter, a self-proclaimed snob about proper fish and chips, eschewed my choice and ordered steak. Big mistake. We exchanged portions and he proclaimed the fish excellent, while I agreed with him that his steak was execrable. How can a restaurant produce a perfect fish while screwing up a steak? Oh well – nice setting, with the doors wide open to a balmy, moon-lit night, and decent service. My Ma’s clam chowder and salad were just fine, according to her, so 2 out of 3.

What the F?

Harry Reid has added illegal alien relief, as well as the repeal of the “don’t ask don’t tell” law, to the ongoing military appropriations act. So you got illegals and fags knotted up with funding the military. Vote for all three or nothing.  Is he really this insane, or is he in the pay of the Republicans?

Illegal hunters

Feds aiming at 60 illegal hunters in Kansas. This can be serious stuff. My best friend from law school was an assistant U.S. Attorney back in the early 80’s and went after a conspiracy of poachers. He received (believable) death threats but he persisted and put a bunch of them behind bars. It’s a world-wide problem, and so I applaud the government for pursuing it.

Are you following any of this nonsense?

A Mexican sports reporter who calls herself the hottest, sexiest reporter in the industry is now complaining that New York Jets players treated her as a sex object rather than a serious reporter. Huh? Can’t have it both ways, honey.

UPDATE: For MTA;

Audi’s new electric car is crap

Or it is in France, where “Etron” means excrement. I thought marketers checked these sort of things.

Riverside is still selling

55 Cedar Cliffe

Under contract, asking price $3.6 million. That’s a thousand per square foot. I like the road, but gee.

Boy, was I wrong

190 North Street

This house came on a few days ago for $15.750 million and I scoffed at the price – I should have seen it before commenting because I toured it today at the brokers’ open house and was thoroughly impressed (will I ever learn this lesson? I hope so). An absolutely perfect renovation and one of the grandest homes in town. It’s set far back from North Street on a hill, so road noise is not an issue, it sits on over three acres and is mere minutes from town. And the house is magnificent. Is the price right? I have no idea, but I prefer this to any similarly priced new construction – they don’t  make ’em like this any more.

McMahon closing on Blumenthal

Within six points now -many voters, according to this poll, don’t think all that much of McMahon but are in the “anyone but Blumenthal” camp. That’s where I am.

What’s happening here?

The Feds are offering home ownership for no money down. A bunch of questions here: is it wise? (I think not). Why are residents of just four states eligible? Who’s behind this scheme?

Just one problem

Cuba, my liberal friends’ favorite Peoples Paradise, is firing 500,000 state employees, with the idea that they will find jobs in the private sector. If there were a private sector, this might work. As it is ….
