|The itsy bitsy spider....|
What the heck is going on with Tim Occhipinti?
GA loves puzzles; I admit this one has me stumped.
It may have started a couple of months back. That's when a spider from the Ramos camp lured Jamie Cryan out for a drink and began wrapping him in silk. The spider was foiled when just in the nick of time, Cryan was rescued from it's bite.
Why dispatch a creepy crawler to devour poor Jamie?
GA can only guess the scheme was to discourage a third ticket. To no avail...
In early September Occhipinti announced his ticket, crushing Ruben's chances of toppling Zimmer. Worse, a third place finish would effectively end his political career. Ramos went ballistic.
Payback time for Tim?
If another spider were dispatched, it would have to be under deep cover and not a known spider.
No, the next one would have to slip under the bug-zapper.
Mind you, GA hates insects, but I like spiders (because they devour pests). Not that I know any personally, but I'll thank any arachnid who devours a big Hoboken pest. And no, I never look a gift horse (or a Ramos) in the mouth.
Anyway, curious times over here at GA.
|Timmy at Monroe St. Fair with Comm Dir. Amanda Palasciano|
In a series of angry Tweets, she called Reform blogs "slanderous" "liars" "cyber-bullies", and suggested the mayor should shut us down. (Note she omitted Hoboken411 and the racist, homophobic, misogynist rantings of her campaign's Ravi Ravioli)
As a friend says "Nothing good comes out of Twitter".
This is a case in point.
GA didn't name anyone in particular. I wrote what I'd been hearing- take it or leave it- without involving anyone in by name. Hence this gal's Twitter-fit, in response to posts about moles, seemed to be a 'tell' of sorts.
To me, anyway.
Anyway, we swapped unpleasant Tweets, and then she blocked me. And probably you, too.
I don't like Twitter, or any social media in fact.
Anyway, the gist I got from my unpleasant exchange with her is that any mention of working for Ruben Ramos is kryptonite.
I don't support Ruben, but he seems pleasant enough. What's "slanderous" about working for him? Pretty disproportionately hostile reaction, no?
