LIAM MC CABE STILL HAS A VERY CONFUSED MESSAGE
LIAM MC CABE: “I WROTE A FEW WORDS --- I THOUGHT --- DREAMS AND PHANTASIES --- A VERY DARK PLACE --- NOT THE NEIGHBORHOOD I [REMEMBER]…..”
LIAM MC CABE ANNOUNCED THAT HE’S A CANDIDATE AFTER
SAYING --- “I’VE SEEN SOME VERY DARK TIMES ---
I’VE OVERCOME MY PROBLEMS” --- HE SPECIFICALLY MENTIONED "ALCOHOLISM"; BUT HE HELD HIS BIG ANNOUNCEMENT AT THE LIEF TAVERN
Will/Liam McCabe delivered a very enthusiastic but rambling speech to announce his candidacy for the City Council last night at The Lief at Fifth Avenue near Senator Street in Bay Ridge.
In a rather large gathering for the small back room at a Bay Ridge bar, McCabe delivered a very unconventional announcement speech --- in fact, it was something that sounded more like an AA testimonial than a political speech.
After his confessorial opening that left lots of unanswered questions about Liam McCabe and his demons (N.B. --- the actual details of many of those demons are a story for another post), the CANDIDATE launched into an extended rant against Mayor deBlasio that made both Bay Ridge and NYC sound like “The Black Hole of Calcutta.” In passing, he mentioned that “Earlier today I heard somebody might be coming into the race” --- and then he mentioned “Hillary Clinton” --- I KID YOU NOT !!!
What do you expect from an AA—TYPE MEETING HELD AT A BAR….. Talk about confused and mixed messages…..
I've looked at the McCabe video from last night's gala a few times since I wrote the text above. The repetition of his impassioned announcement speech made the point of his bombastic exposition less clear to me with each showing. I've settled on this well-said description of it all --- It was a bunch of "... sound and fury signifying nothing."
