Ron Angle: No More Mr. Nice Guy

As Northampton County Exec John Stoffa thanked his supporters individually during his Victory Party last night, he went out of his way to compliment Sharon Angle, Ron's wife.

"I want you to meet somebody who's going straight to heaven. Sharon, would you stand up?

"If you have somebody up there you want to talk to, talk to Sharon. When she dies, she's going straight to heaven."

Angle: "May I make a short announcement? Starting June 1, I'm turning over a new leaf. No more nice guy."

"That would be a pretty damn big leaf."

glad John won. Also glad that Howells and Hershman appear to be done in Allentown.

Now it's time to vote for real change and say goodbye to those who've been around forever and are responsible for the current, dysfunctional county government.

John Stoffa is a nice man, but largely ineffective as executive, and the working definition of a career bureacrat. Say no to lifelong insiders. Say yes to change. Vote Kelleher.

When did Ron Angle become a nice guy, how many lawsuits and how many fleecings?

Good to see Kelleher got up early this morning. Must not have had any speed dating to do last night!

Stoffa is impotent and incompetent. His alliance with Angle an indictment on his judgement. But McHale offered nothing for voters.

And the personal attacks from the Stoffa side are launched!

Admittedly, I wouldn't want to run on his record, either. I'll bet Kelleher sticks to issues.

Where was this reception held? Looks like the basement of an old time jail.

Anon 10:08,

That is Colonial Pizza in Easton, a real landmark.

It's a great place. I should have told you, Rich. I'm sorry.

No problemo.

Colonial has outstanding pizza. It's worth dodging bullets to get. Seriously, it's outstanding.

This has all but assurred a terrible 2009 and four more years of deadlocked government with no solutions.

After Angle's low blow McHale and other Dem's will just line up to work with Stoffa.

Stoffa won and the County lost.

I see Ken Mohr to Stoffa right. He was happy four more years of a buddy contract for $24,999.99 a year. Good for you Ken.
