It's a sad thing when a symbiotic political marriage breaks up.
In this case, we're talking about a parasite and its host.
Here's how it works: the parasite aides and abets the agenda of it's host- votes with it, supports it unconditionally whether it's to oppose the sale of Hoboken's only hospital or a cost-free garage bond refinance consequently blowing a $4.5 Million hole in Hoboken's budget surplus. Obedience is key in this kind of relationship. So if the host tells its parasite to vote 'no' to bond for repairs to flood damaged Pier C park or 'no' to new HOP buses to replace those destroyed in Hurricane Sandy, that's what it does. Obey. For in return, the parasite attaches itself to the host's checkbook, suckles it with abandon, and is rewarded with a fully-funded mayoral campaign.
Have you figured out yet who GA might be referring to?
Well, Earwitnesses have been buzzing about the bust-up of the Tim Occhipinti- Beth Mason 'marriage'. The way I heard it, Timmy left her. For another another woman.
Well, he's trying to land the other woman- he hasn't yet. And there's competition.
Earwitnesses are buzzing that Councilman Occhipinti's been running around bad-mouthing Councilwoman Mason, throwing her so far under the bus you can only see her ruby slippers.
|Not a house, a BUS.|
That's my guess.
Anyway, GA never would have thunk it. The breakup of a loving and caring political marriage. GA can't imagine this D-I-V-O-R-C-E happening without the host's consent.
