A bit more on Marc Abrams, “the incredible candidate”

Two losers: Dukakis and an Abrams

Two losers: Dukakis and an Abrams

Here’s one of the emails he sent the boyfriend of his ex-girlfriend. As several readers have asked, can’t Democrats at least Google people before they appoint them as candidates? The answer, I’m sure, is that the only thing they investigate is the depth of a candidate’s bank account.

UPDATE: It turns out, every Democrat involved in approving Abrams’ campaign, from local chair Farricker to state party leaders knew of all this and it didn’t bother them in the least. No word yet whether the Greenwich Reform Synagogue was also aware of Mr. Abrams’ coarse misogyny before electing him its president.

Are there still any global warmest believers out there? Why?

Henson and his settled scientists

Henson and his settled scientists

The Wall Street Journal dredges up  2001 interview with global warming “expert” and NASA puppeteer, Jim Henson, predicting the state of the world by 2009.

As it turns out, Salon was way ahead of the curve in covering how “climate change” is “already affecting our daily lives.” This is from a 2001 interview with Bob Reiss, author of a book called “The Coming Storm: Extreme Weather and Our Terrifying Future”:

Extreme weather means more terrifying hurricanes and tornadoes and fires than we usually see. But what can we expect such conditions to do to our daily life?

While doing research 12 or 13 years ago, I met Jim Hansen, the scientist who in 1988 predicted the greenhouse effect before Congress. I went over to the window with him and looked out on Broadway in New York City and said, “If what you’re saying about the greenhouse effect is true, is anything going to look different down there in 20 years?” He looked for a while and was quiet and didn’t say anything for a couple seconds. Then he said, “Well, there will be more traffic.” I, of course, didn’t think he heard the question right. Then he explained, “The West Side Highway [which runs along the Hudson River] will be under water. And there will be tape across the windows across the street because of high winds. And the same birds won’t be there. The trees in the median strip will change.” Then he said, “There will be more police cars.” Why? “Well, you know what happens to crime when the heat goes up.”

And so far, over the last 10 years, we’ve had 10 of the hottest years on record.

That conversation would have taken place in 1988 or 1989, which means Hansen was making predictions about what would happen by 2009.

Democrat’s war on homosexuals

Democrat serving his master

Democrat’s wet dream

National Review bestows the title “America’s Worst Governor” on Dannel Malloy and he responds by calling them a bunch of faggots. To be precise he dismissed the magazine, founded by the late Connecticut resident (and Malloy’s neighbor in Stamford) William F. Buckley  as“ a right-wing, tea bag organization,”

Ever since Dollar Bill graced the comments section of FWIW I’ve marveled at liberals’ constant evocation of a notorious homosexual equal practice when referring to anyone who opposes them. I’m not a psychiatrist, but I played one in a high school play, and I’d identify this pattern as one of transference; perhaps when he’s retired next month Mr. Malloy will use his new leisure to investigate his troubles with a trained mental health counselor, preferably one specializing in repressed feelings and memories.

Democrats’ war on women

You ignorant sluts

You two, ignorant sluts

Greenwich Democrat Marc Abrams forced to quit state house race after being accused of sexual harassment.

Former high-flying hedge fund manager Marc Abrams was forced to drop out of the race for the 149th State House seat in Greenwich, Conn., after allegations of sexual harassment against him by two former employees resurfaced.

Marc, with his brother Russell Abrams, ran Titan Capital, which at one time managed $400 million. Marc, a Democrat, was running against longtime GOP incumbent Livvy Floren.

But Marc this week came under fire after a 2010 sexual harassment lawsuit against him — as well as Russell — by two former assistants hit the news again. The suit alleges assistants Cristina Culicea and Danielle Pecile were subjected to tawdry comments, misogyny and discrimination. It also says Marc, now married, had a relationship with Pecile in 2008, but sent her “a string of vulgar and abusive e-mails” once it ended.

This development will likely dismay Frankie Fudrucker, who mere weeks ago joined his colleagues in praising Abrams as the very model of a modern major candidate:

“Marc is an example of the kind of incredible candidate that brings to the table the representation that can win in either party,” said DTC Chairman Frank Farricker. “Both sides can recognize how valuable and how strong he will be representing us in Hartford.”

Oops.

At the time he announced his candidacy, Abrams saw his biggest challenge to be getting his name out to the public, but confidently vowed,  “name recognition can be overcome with hard work.”

Mission accomplished.

Sale reported yesterday

43 Sterling Road

43 Sterling Road

Just saw that 43 Sterling Road closed yesterday for $2.750 million. That’s a long way from 2009 and the opening price of $6.350 million. It’s also a long way from town, which probably explains the wait for a buyer.

There are (at least) two Americas

Reverse butt plug

Reverse butt plug

One that bestows this item as a Christmas gift upon delighted recipients, and another that doesn’t.

It works as advertised, by the way, although I’d love to see how it does on politicians.

Every Hunter needs this!

By Samantha Duggan on February 8, 2010

I bought this as a gift for my father. He was ecstatic! Him and my husband are very excited to use this next hunting season. They have used one previously and were very impressed with how clean it kept the meat.
UPDATE: A useful police investigative tool, too!
That’s why they call it “crack” cocaine.

Greenwich School Board strikes again

After consulting with my colleagues, Dr. McKersie, we've decided that your fly is down."

After consulting with my colleagues, Dr. McKersie, we’ve decided that your fly is down.”

Hires consulting firm for $64,000 to conduct community forums and group conscience meetings in order to create a more perfect school district. Bids for this service ranged from $254,000 to $64,000: why the discrepancy, and why did our BOE go with the lowest bidder?

“Because these guys come up with their numbers the same way we do: they pull them out of their asses”, School Chief  William McKersie told FWIW, “and the numbers are meaningless. It’s a totally useless exercise in the first place, but as educators, we just have to hire consultants – God help us, we just have to. But since it is a complete crock, we figured the least we could do was keep the cost to a minimum – that’s part of our job, as guardians of the taxpayers’  money.”
