|Taking pleasure in wrecking a man's livelihood|
Have you ever hit a piñata?
You know, those hollow figurines filled with candy and toys you swing at with a bat. Sometimes you really have to pummel it before it breaks.
Well, GA was waiting for candy to come out of Ravi Bhalla last night.
Perry Belefiore, Beth Mason, Terry Castellano, Mike Russo all took their best shots. BANG! BAM! POW! They swung with such mean-spiritedness, it was clear their objective was not to win votes but to destroy a man.
Worse, the ones swinging hardest seemed to relish the beating. To use the vernacular, they got off on it. A shrink might call it some kind of replacement-sex. BANG, BANG, BANG- ooooh ahhhhhhh... hit him harder, faster! GA's no shrink, but the assault was so sadistic and their enjoyment so plain, I suggest they don black rubber lederhosen, laced leather corsets and executioner's masks to the next Council meeting. 50 Shades of Beth Mason.

Kids hit a piñata for candy. Belfiore, Mason and Castellano wanted blood.
But, you know a strange thing happened. The harder they swung, the smaller they got. Yep.
By the time Perry Belefiore swung his final epithet (calling Ravi a "bastard") he went POOF and disappeared in a cloud of smoke. Poor Perry, all that was left in the room was his gorgeous silver mop. (Either that or he was removed by a policeman for disorderly conduct) In any case, Belfiore vanished with a bang.
Next, Mason and Castellano shrank to 3" tall under the dais. A cockroach passing by high-fived them and said, "nice work."
In short, last night was a salvage operation for 50 Shades of Mason's Ravi-Resolution. It's success as a political operation depends on where you sit.
I'm guessing loyal BDSM fans, bigots and misanthropes enjoyed seeing a good man's reputation and career recklessly trashed in theory, for a political outcome.
The others thought it was way too much, too personal, too mean and will deliver MORE bodies to the polls for Bhalla.
The piñata kept his candy, and his dignity.
Thank you, Ravi.
