Diana Sepulveda’s recent post in “Behind Enemy Lines...” is much more than a few words about “...Blogging From Within” — She is telling the story of the emergence of Gene and Russell from a couple of local guys to a pair of emerging conservative Republicans moving up in the national right-wing media
FROM PAINS IN THE NECK TO DAGGERS IN THE HEARTThe Diana S. Blog-piece About Gene and Russell is so much more than a paean or panegyric to a pair that started as (a) local “pain(s) in the neck”....
Those who know the history, know that for the longest time, Moron #1 and Moron #2 were royal pains in my Gravesend-Neck, as well as to other Independent Brooklyn Republicans. And that for years I stayed away from Brennan & Carr’s or Roll’n’Roaster for fear of having a major throw-down with the Ole Sarge or a fatal belly-bump with Gene. Finally, my urge to merge with some roast beef on roll got the better of me, and Russell and I did some manly bonding over our amber and/or chocolate-brown liquids of choice. And, as everybody knows, where Russell goes – there also travels Gene (ala Abbott & Costello, Martin & Lewis, Sacco and Vanzetti, and Leopold and Loeb) . Enough of that, I have come to praise Gene and Russell, not to bury them. Using the words of Diana Sepulveda, I want to announce the emergence of our pair of local ne’er do wells into a duo of national media personalities in the precincts of the right and the righteous.
With their new and improved blog-radio program and associated text blog, Gene Berardelli and Russell Gallo have taken their Brooklyn Republican message out of its Plum Beach and New Utrecht Avenue cocoon and allowed it to fly over all America.
