Partying like the moonbats
Disgraced Arlington pols stir it up

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 Leaders 50 percent landslide last week.
On the downside, two of Arlingtons 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 youre 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.
Whats 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 Ive seen you in blue and Ive 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 masters 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 dont 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/ Lets have a party, lets have a party.
BYOB. Trousers optional.
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.
