This might be a Howie column or it might not. Honest to God, it says “by ho” on the Herald’s website as of 2:25 am,
Wed., Dec 31, 2008. I am assuming it could be by Howie.
Alleged Howie column ping.
Jim Marzilli rings in New Year groping for a handful
By ho (sic)
Wednesday, December 31, 2008 - Added 6h ago
And so 2008 ends the way it began - with disgraced ex-Sen. Jim Marzillis hand in an extremely inappropriate place.
This time it isnt on some poor womans crotch in Lowell, its on the commonwealths public purse. Yes, the perv in the Prius, facing trial in the spring on charges of groping and making lewd comments during a one-man crime spree in Lowell, now seeks at the age of 50 to nearly double his pension.
Fourteen thousand isnt nearly enough. He claims he deserves $27,000.
I thought this bum Marzilli was a Socialist. What about . . . the children, Jim? Yet another liberal who talks the talk but cant be bothered walking the walk.
This latest turn of events, as appalling as it is, is not exactly unexpected. I know, because I predicted exactly what has now transpired, back in my column of July 16. You can look it up.
Ill also stand by my other prediction that day - that the Retirement Board will vote thumbs-down on this latest outbreak of senatorial kleptomania, and that Marzilli will appeal the decision to the grotesquely corrupt Massachusetts judiciary, which will take about five seconds to approve his pension and give him a hearty pat on the back to boot.
Who says there is no honor among thieves?
After this pension-grab story broke on Christmas Eve, I checked back on the local Arlington Web site. One Menotony moonbat opined: I cant necessarily fault him for taking advantage of the law.
Another member of the PC Posse wrote: It appears to me that Jim is following a provision of the pension law.
And what a provision. Marzilli gets to cash out because he allegedly abused at least four women in Lowell, then attempted to escape from the police, gave a phony name when he was collared, and finally had the temerity to check himself into a mental hospital, claiming that he had a disease.
Remarkably, he recovered enough from his, ahem, bipolar disorder, to go on a junket to Germany in the fall.
Marzilli lost his seat because he didnt campaign after his arrest. However you want to slice the baloney, the fact is, Marzilli is trying to reward himself for allegedly making the following despicable statements to various women on the streets of Lowell:
Do you have any undergarments under that?
The sex is sweet, you want it, and you want to go with me.
Oh baby, you are so beautiful - your butt is perfect.
For his vile conduct, Jim Marzilli thinks he deserves a double pension. Happy New Year!
from the comments:
Howie, when did you change your name?? Your latest predictions will probably come true. I guess the Herald cannot afford a proof reader.
Yeah I thought this was a ghost written Carr article.
LOL! Has Howie forgotten Animal Farm? All the animals are equal . . . but some are more equal than others!
Wed show ping. Should be Avi Nelson today, maybe a best of
tomorrow, and Col Hunt on Friday.
We could use snowstorm reporter “Buff Buffington” right about now (For God’s sake get out to the market right now! We may never have bread or milk again! I just saw a polar bear!
Here in Beverly allegedly there’s Beverly New Year 2009,
aka “We didn’t want to spend the money to get the rights to
the ‘First Night’ name”. May try to wade through the snow to catch a blues/folk concert at an art gallery on
Cabot St (3 pm)
Meanwhile, in Hartford the 3 pm local talk host got laid
off at WTIC and they’re replacing him with a local news
block. I thought, yeah it’s great they’re doing local
stuff, certainly, but wouldn’t it have been great if they
picked up HOWIE?
