Partying like the moonbats
Disgraced Arlington pols stir it up
By Howie Carr | Sunday, November 18, 2012 | | Columnists

Photo by Ted Fitzgerald
For the moonbats of Arlington, these are the best of times, these are the worst of times, to coin a phrase.

On the positive side for the pony-tailed, trust-funded, Birkenstock-clad geriatric hippies of Menotomy, there was Dear Leader’s 50 percent landslide last week.

On the downside, two of Arlington’s leading loony limousine liberals — moonbats’ moonbats, you might say — have found themselves ensnared in the criminal justice system.

I refer, of course, to ex-Sen. Jim Marzilli and ex-Selectwoman Annie LaCourt.

You know you’re having a bad week when these headlines appear:

“Disgraced ex-senator probed after pantless report.”

And, “Arlington selectman charged for alleged underage drinking party.”

First, Marzilli, the solon formerly known as “the Perv in the Prius.” He did a three-month bit in Billerica after being found guilty of annoying/accosting a person of the opposite sex in Lowell in 2011. Among other things, he asked an elderly disabled woman if she was wearing underwear. From his Aqualung-like perch on a park bench, he told a younger woman that she had a “perfect butt.”

Jailbird Jim has moved back in with his parents in Watertown, but old habits — especially bad habits — die hard. Last month, the Watertown cops got a call from a “shocked, alarmed” 46-year-old mom.

She had been raking leaves when suddenly she noticed Marzilli standing in the doorway of his parents’ house wearing a long dress shirt. No trousers, she said — in other words, the same outfit Ted Kennedy wore in Palm Beach on the “traditional Easter weekend” in 1991 that ended with rape charges against his nephew.

The Watertown cops were called, and Marzilli denied all. No charges were filed — not even impersonating a Kennedy — but the incident report was forwarded to the probation department.

By the way, for his years of public service, the 54-year-old Democrat is now receiving a $14,000-a-year state pension. Now you can call him the Perv with the Pension.

On the same day the Marzilli story was breaking, a clerk magistrate found probable cause to charge LaCourt and her husband (who naturally has a different last name) with 33 counts of serving alcohol to minors. The police reported they had found 21 teenagers, some as young as 16, boozing it up at a party at the LaCourts’ home. Did I mention LaCourt had an Elizabeth Warren for Senate sign in her front yard?

LaCourt, who has been known to get up and walk out of the room during invocations before municipal meetings, came to the attention of the Arlington PD in 2009 for a similar teen soiree. No charges were filed after that chug-a-lug party, which featured a game of “beer pong” in the front hall.

I called Ms. LaCourt for a comment.

“This is Annie,” she said.

“Hi,” I responded, “this is Howie Carr —” Click.

What’s most amusing in this latest beer blast is that the cops spotted some of the crapulous teenagers in a nearby park with red Solo cups. I kid you not — red Solo cups, the kind Toby Keith wrote a famous song about.

Take it away, Toby: “Now I’ve seen you in blue and I’ve seen you in yellow/ But only you, red, will do for this fellow.”

I rather doubt Annie is familiar with this American country standard. After all, she has a master’s degree from Yale. I told you she was a moonbat.

Needless to say, these two tragic events have caused quite a stir in town. The blow-in drifter moonbats, who would love to live in Cambridge but don’t have large enough trust funds, are shocked, shocked.

The “townies,” on the other hand, the locals who actually have real jobs and work for a living, are more than somewhat amused.

The two groups trade insults on the local message boards.

Annie LaCourt and Jim Marzilli, both jammed up in the same week.

To quote Oscar Wilde, it would take a heart of stone not to laugh.

Toby Keith, back to you: “Red Solo cup, I fill you up/ Let’s have a party, let’s have a party.”

BYOB. Trousers optional.

Howie made the mistake of being honest when calling her. “This is...this is Mike Barnicle, from the Artlington Patch, your community newspaper. Yeah...yeah, that’s the ticket!” Should’ve said that to her, maybe...then hopefully get all the details!

Howie Caaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrr-—as they say in New England.
He mentioned the other day that he “hopes there is a God so the bad people get punished”. Prayers that Howie will come to relationship with Jesus His son.

This is a great way to start a Sunday morning. I love a good story.

Since I get neither the Globe or cable TV, most of this stuff slips by, unless Howie mentions it on his show (which he did).

Thanks rr.

CryptoLeftist Howie Carr protected Obama and the DNC
all week, purporting “there was no voter fraud”,
EVEN AFTER his own radio station reported fraud
after fraud — in real time during the Election
in several cities.

Hadn’t heard him say that but if so, that’s bad—there had to be voter fraud.

Almost 25 years ago.
a bit of the late Jerry Williams who preceded Howie in pm drive on RKO, on the Morton Downey Jr show talking about Dukakis.

Dear Leader’s 50 percent landslide last week.

Hey, Howie: THEY LOST.

Been meaning to leave that message on the Chump Line, but have been too busy working to support the Welfare State.

Wed column ping

Give Dems an inch, they’ll take a mile ... tax
By Howie Carr | Wednesday, November 21, 2012 | | Columnists

Photo by Stuart Cahill
All you motorists out there, consider yourselves warned: Gov. Deval Patrick wants to tax you back to the Stone Age.

You can withstand a pay cut, right? Especially when it’s for a good cause — otherwise, how are the hacks at the State House going to be able to continue paying their fellow coatholder Sheila Burgess $87,000 a year for whatever new phony-baloney job they invent for her now that she’s no longer going to be the “state highway safety director.”

This latest Beacon Hill trial balloon on higher taxes was floated the day before Sheila Burgess, of Randolph and the 34 moving violations and assorted citations, became the 2012 poster girl for the hackerama.

In the tax-hike story, the hacks claimed they need at least a billion for the “infrastructure.” The reality is, the infrastructure is Sheila Burgess and her fellow payroll patriots. They’re very needy, and greedy.

Which is why the Democrats are whispering yet again about a proposed tax on miles driven. But don’t worry — it’ll “only” cost you .85 cents per mile ... in the first year. In June, the last time they floated this new tax — excuse me, “funding strategy” — the hacks pooh-poohed its impact. Since the average motorist drives 14,800 miles a year, the Beacon Hill taxaholics argued, even after the tax goes up to a penny a mile, it’ll “only” cost you an extra $148 a year.

Chickenfeed, unless of course you were to ask an illegal alien to pay $148 to go to UMass Amherst for a year. Then it would be a hate crime, nativism, xenophobia, etc. etc.

Then there’s the state’s 21-cents-a-gallon gas tax. An increase in the gas tax was voted down in 2009, but now the hacks plan to “revisit” it.

That’s a great word, revisit. The hacks never lose anything permanently, they just “revisit” it later. But once they get what they want — such as, say, gay marriage — then the other side can never revisit the issue. Because once the moonbats win, it becomes “settled law” and/or a “constitutional right.”

By the way, the hacks never raise taxes either. They “adjust” them — upward. Maybe this time they can promise us that it will be a “temporary” increase in the gas tax, or the tolls. In hackspeak, the definition of “temporary” is “permanent.”

But the money is needed. You can’t expect Sheila Burgess to actually work for a living, now can you? This is a woman so ethical she once gave $500 to the disgraced ex-House speaker Felon Finneran, who after being convicted of obstructing justice went on to host what was perhaps the worst talk show in radio history.

Despite her commitment to so-called public service, Sheila Burgess hadn’t paid her automobile excise tax until a newspaper began nosing around earlier this month. Same thing with Granny Warren, the fake Indian. She was in arrears to the City of Cambridge until I called her campaign on it. And we all remember Liveshot Kerry trying to beat the state and the Town of Nantucket for more than $500,000 on the $7 million yacht his second wife’s first husband’s trust fund bought for him.

What is it with these liberals and taxes — I mean enhanced revenues? They seem to think taxes are mandatory for us, but optional for them.

There used to be a TV show called “You Asked for It.” On Nov. 6, we asked for it, and now we’re going to get it, in spades.

Fri column ping. Turned out Avi was on, live, for Howie yesterday (heard a bit of it). Today? Probably McScreamer but you never know. I’ll tune in at 3 to find out.

Lindsay Stone of “Silence and Respect—NOT!” fame resigned (i.e. got fired) on Wed night. I’m sure her parents were kind to her but you wonder if they served up “hot tongue and cold shoulder” to her, to use a Howie phrase, yesterday.
(Nice of her dad to apologize on TV -for- her.)

Mitt Romney blue? You better believe it
By Howie Carr | Friday, November 23, 2012 | | Columnists

Of course Mitt Romney is bummed out. Why wouldn’t he be? He just spent six years of his life, and tens of millions of dollars, on the only job that ever meant anything to him.

As he found out at Disneyland last week, life is like a roller coaster — and right now he is in a dip.

Mitt didn’t just lose it — he was defeated by a guy who actually believes they speak Austrian in Austria, and who has seriously argued that surgeons needlessly chop off their patients’ limbs to run up the tab.

In other words, it was embarrassing — like losing to the Kansas City Chiefs.

So why are people acting surprised when they see sneaky shots of him on the Internet looking depressed, even disheveled, as he pumps his own gas out in La Jolla?

Remember the famous Mike Dukakis skit on “Saturday Night Live” at the end of the 1988 campaign? The Duke watches George H.W. Bush acting like a fool, then turns to the camera and says, “I can’t believe I’m losing to this guy.”

I mean, Scott Brown is going to have himself a blue-blue-blue Christmas too, but at least he knew early on he was all jammed up. But Mitt had a chance — maybe not as good a shot as his sycophants told him he had — but he was in the running till the very end.

That’s why they bought all those fireworks.

On the bright side, at least as far as we know, no one said to him what bootlicker Bob Shrum said to Liveshot Kerry before the polls closed in 2004: “Let me be the first to address you as Mr. President.”

The night after Dukakis lost, he was spotted at his local Star Market in Brookline, pushing a grocery carriage by himself as his Secret Service entourage tagged along behind him one final time.

The Duke was in the canned-goods aisle, comparing prices between Jolly Green Giant and the generic, President’s Club brand. President’s Club indeed! Of course he was depressed — you just couldn’t tell because that was the Duke’s natural disposition.

What did Barney Frank once say? “If you want to depress the Central Artery, just have it talk to Mike Dukakis.”

John Kerry still believes the 2004 election was stolen from him in Ohio. To paraphrase the Bard: Sometimes, dear Liveshot, the fault is not in the stars, but in ourselves, that we are mere secretaries of defense.

Kerry still hates former Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell almost as much as he despises the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth. Mitt’s 2012 bleep list is shorter, I’m sure, but at the top has got to be Gov. Chris Christie.

What an MSNBC-worthy performance he turned in with Obama after Sandy. He was so obsequious he may give Chief Justice Roberts a run for the 2013 Profiles in Courage Award, which is awarded annually by the Kennedy family to the biggest conservative sellout of the previous year.

And then the Fat Man wept when he appeared with Bruce Springsteen. What a sad spectacle. Christie, you coulda been a contender.

Two other guys Mitt can’t be too pleased with: losing Senate candidates Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock. Apparently neither of them got the memo about how sometimes it is better to remain silent and be thought a fool ...

Poor Willard. I hope he can find some hobby or cause to take his mind off what happened Nov. 6. Otherwise, the next time one of Mitt’s neighbors posts a candid photo of him on Facebook, he’ll probably be weeping.
