Politics Makes for Strange Bedfellows



Political interests can bring together people who otherwise have little in common except for the uncontrollable need for power and influence. Politics makes for strange bedfellows is adapted from a line in the play The Tempest, by William Shakespeare: "Misery acquaints a man with strange bedfellows." It is spoken by a man who has been shipwrecked and finds himself seeking shelter beside a sleeping monster.


In this case, all our sleeping monsters are wide awake and their ravenous hunger for political power consumes their sense of decency. Therefore, Tom Ognibene and Charles Ober had a clandestine meeting to discuss the intimate details of their campaign strategy. It was agreed that they would join forces, disguising themselves as reformers while attacking their opponents. It was determined that their unholy union would remain intact until the Special Election on June 3rd at which time they would find out if their deception had worked. In addition to their demonic agreement, the two agents of deception hatched a despicable plan (the pant and rant) to create a homophobic letter; distribute it to voters so they could publicly condemn the action while placing blame on the other candidates. Bravo! Bravo!


Meanwhile, in his illegal basement, Bob Holden worked feverishly behind the scenes creating Ognibene literature and attacking Tom's opponents on the Queens Crap, in the Forum West and Juniper Berry. Holden even called upon his evil twin Tony Avella to publicly endorse Ober to continue the evil alliance. The Four Horses' Asses of the Apocalypse thought they could pull a fast one over local residents, however, the smart voters of the 30th District know better.


This race will once again show the true hypocrisy of the Four Stooges (Ober has become Shemp). Holden has condemned all elected officials who have taken $1 from real estate developers but ignores Ognibene's political contributor list. Holden has attacked everyone who is suspected of bending the rules for corrupt DOB inspectors yet he dismisses Ognibene's bribery allegations.


Holden, Ognibene, Avella and Ober = the epitome of strange bedfellows.

If the meeting was clandestine ("secret" for your readers), how did you learn of it? Were you part of the plan?

Your photo illustration is entirely homophobic. but, you knew that.

Why is it homophobic to show the male form? Were the Romans and Greeks homophobic? Was Michelangelo?

Perhaps you're unsecure with your own sexuality? Or perhaps you're Bob Holden or one of his lickspittle lackey bootlicks.

Thank heavens for the Patriots and the Internet to allow the neighborhood to inform each other and the world that a few unelected overgrown student council weenies do not speak for Middle Village. Thank you Patrick! (depite your far right wing lunacy).

Ober and Crowley DISREPECT Veterans. On Sunday at the Maspeth Memorial Day Parade Liz Crowley and Charles Ober where seen handing out campaign literature. Their campaign people where seen handing out palm cards running beside the marching men and women who deserve the utmost respect for the sacrafices they gave to this country. It is an outrage that these individuals would use this somber day of reflection and thought to our Veterans who perished fighting for our freedom to recieve a personal gain. Many public officials and candidates attended this parade. They however did not use this as a political arena. They instead marched in the parade out of respect for their country and the men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifce. Pat Toro President of the Veterans commite scolded these morans in his speech stating that this was totally uncalled for. This day was about the Veterans who perished or where disabled during the conflicts and not about politicing. Veterans remember this day.

Ober handed material out prior to the march.

The slut handed material out DURING the march.

During the ceremony on the square, following the march, Crowley couldn't shut her mouth for a single moment.

No matter who was speaking, or what the topic, this "everything is all about me" dumbass couldn't control her lips.

But, she never could.

Anyone notice Maltese flyers passed out at Forest Hills parade?

Wonder why no one pointed out all the Pro Como stuff of Serf & Turf Maltese's car?

Oh that's right this blog fully supports the candidacy of Anthony Como and only serves to trash his opponents.

Nothing like replacing a corrupt Republican with a incompetent one...

Do you have any evidence of this clandestine meeting? Were you there? What are your sources? I'm not being snarky - I'd really like to know; it would surely influence my vote if it could be proved. Or course, if you don't have any evidence I hope you'll be honest enough to admit that.
