On Friday, Ron Angle was a little bit nicer than I. He referred to those who insist that that County taxpayers remain shackled to Gracedale, as radicals. I prefer to call them the Gracedale Goons.
Northampton County Dem Party Boss Walter Garvin, who attended Angle's news conference, laughed in derision at Angle's use of the word "radical." But that stopped when I asked why Democrats perverted a supposed petition drive for Gracedale, to publicize the campaigns of John Callahan, Joe Sestak and Charles Dertinger. Although Garvin was at that rally (as was Lehigh County Dem Boss Rich Daugherty),he insisted he saw nothing. "I don't know what you're talking about," he improbably insists.
Right. That' s one reason I call this attempt to shackle taxpayers the work of goons.
This is the goofy group that claims to be led by a supposed preacher, but has started the last four County Council meetings with venomous attacks at Ron Angle. Although forty boy scouts attended the last Council meeting, the Unholy Preacher and his crew thought nothing of interrupting the meeting and hurling vulgarities.
That'a a second reason I call them Gracedale Goons.
Now they're all out circulating petitions, and plan to spend Election Day making a push at the polls. But I'm leery of their circulators. In Bangor, one of them (he calls himself "Frank Merchant") seems very concerned with the clothing being worn by the women he solicits: "[S]tanding over her I saw she was driving with a shirt and just flowered panties on !!! No pants or dress in sight."
That's downright creepy. Maybe it should be Gracedale Stalkers.
