Chairman Bob should have let it go.....


Try never to let them know when they hit you with a  " 'Gotcha !' moment "  that scored.....



A can of beer on a crowded subway  ---  It's not quite the stuff of a Nuremberg prosecution,  you know  ---  Certainly,  given the public intoxication standards of one or two of our local elected Republicans,  and the consequences for them,  this is very light beer indeed



Going full counter-force against various perceived "routine suspects" was neither the best tactic nor the best strategy for the top local Reform Party guy.




Instead,  I would have countered with something witty like this:   "The 'standing woman' in question (and in the photo)  really looked like she had probably chosen her spot with an eye toward some good healthy IRT-quality frottage.  I offered her my seat,  but she demurred and said that her chosen spot was where she really wanted to be....   Who was I to interfere with her life choices ?"

EDITOR-MODERATOR'S COMMENT: THE "IT'S BEEN SO LONG....." EDITION

I have waited for years to use the word "frottage" in one of my posts.....

You explain it to the kiddies if they have any questions.

Bob is lashing out at Liam and ironically he had nothing to do with that picture.

Picture of what?

Well Chairman bob must be off duty as a guardian angel. Sitting there drinking a cold one on the subway while a woman stands in front of him.

Hey Bob couldnt wait till you got home to staten island?

Goose Island beer !!! An aristocrat.

I had Bob pegged as more of a Miller Low Life type of guy.

Okay so now you guys got your two minutes of admiration from Golden team, for what? Still won't hire either of you, and now you've shown what sleazeballs you really are for posting that picture of Bob. Now it makes sense why no one in politics from your neck of the woods wants anything to do with you.

They shoot horses, don't they?

I saw the photo, looks like one of those energy drinks to me...even if it was a beer , bob never got fired from a job for drinking (Liam did from Ulrich for pissing on his office rug while drunk- true story) or arrested (liam was drunk when arrested for hitting his kid)

Clearly Bob and the Reform Party maneuvers in the Golden race rankled the Golden/Kassar crew.

I realize Uncle Gale's 21st century telegraph reports are unable to display daguerrotypes, but can anyone point us to a link where we can see the aforementioned photo of Bob drinking a beer on mass transit?

Anonymous said...

I think it is checkmate for Eaton and Capano.

Capano with the photo and Eaton will not providing one link here of any GOP leader speaking kindly of Craig or referring to his time as the "gilded ages" as was claimed here..also no links to Craig beating Marty "bloddy"

I think Team Golden better get serious and hire some real political consultants. Posting that picture of Bob will get a few cackles from the people who hate Bob. On the other hand everyone will see how sleazy Jerry really is and how desperate and irrelevant he’s become he’s relying on Manhattan consultants barely old enough to drink. Accomplished nothing but showing that not getting Reform party was a big blow.

I hear there is a photo out there that will be out out soon of Liam literally shitting outside of a cab in Coney Island when he was drunk ...ask Liam and he will confirm this happened ..I can't wait to see it..

Anonymous said...

It makes Bob look even worst to attack Liam when he had nothing to do with the picture on Twitter yesterday. He sounds unhinged.

Anonymous said...

Any future Liam thinks he has running for office will be gone, depriving his friends and M anhattan consultants of a client!. This photo is Liam is real bad..

552 am
Since photo sent anonymously how do we know it is not Liam???????

Anonymous said...

5:55 ask around. Maybe GM can speak to some of his sources and write a post about it. In local circles it’s well known how where picture was taken and why it was posted yesterday.

Anonymous said...

It was posted the day Golden d idnt get the Reform Party line..not rocket science.

Anonymous said...

Drinking an energy drink (or even a beer coming home from a Yankee game) on a train is nothing compared to being ads naked taking a shit outside a cab...the photo will show it all..again, Liam will confirm this happened

Anonymous said...

Even if Liam d idnt post the photo, We know it was one of his close cohorts so all the same.

Anonymous said...

Not all the same because Liam didn’t know or approve, was done as a favor to someone to get them jobs on Marty’s campaign.

Anonymous said...

We can be sure whoever the "favor" was for and whoever wants the "jobs on Marty's campaign" would support and want jobs on any potential Liam campaign, which will never happen after later today and the Coney Island shitting photo is sent out...so you see it really is all the same..

Anonymous said...

Bob has been informed of what happened so the person who keeps trying to drag Liam into this obviously has their own agenda and should really get it together before they have a nervous breakdown

Anonymous said...

The person who has this Liam photo has had it for awhile , and d idnt even use it during the council campaign because he/she had a conscience given Liams real drinking challenges...but with the photo of Bob still being sent out on twitter, including again this am, I think all bets are off..without question, not knowing what was supposedly told to Bob , I am confident those who are sending around are close with Liam and would want a job with any future campaign , which will be gone now

Anonymous said...

7:29 since Liam was not part of the decision to post the photo of Bob why do you keep bringng him up? Is it out of a genuine concern for Bob or because of a personal ax to grind with Liam?

Anonymous said...

No doubt its all Liam.

It was Liam who made Bob eat so much pizza he turned into the blob.

It was Liam who made fat bob drink beer on a crowded subway

Bob was told today it was Liam and Alexandra...

7:54 is taking wild guesses and making a fool out of himself in his feud with Liam.

Anonymous said...

Playing the same game, at 9am tomorrow from an anonymous email and from an anonymous Twitter address, the Liam coney island shit photo will be sent out and people can make their own judgment about what is more clear-- the unclear drink or Liam taking a shit in public

energy drink !!!

Bob might be on to something. It takes a lot of energy to stand up when you weigh 350

Keep up the "good work" of diving deep into the muck of personal attacks --- the mob loves it; and I'm sure the Democrats are enjoying it too.


Anonymous said...

GM the bottom line is Bob and some of his supporters are afraid to face the real person who took and posted that photo because his father is a friend John Cats.

9:44 has a a gripe with Liam or its Bob afraid of Cats. Anyone who has any contacts in Brooklyn GOP circles knows this has nothing to do with Liam.

Just like Cats supposedly endorsed Golden ..so much fake news here!

9:59 why don’t you just call out Liam next to you see him instead of posting bs on this blog? Everybody knows this was about the Reform talks breaking down and the son of friend of Cats taking his shot at Capano with the hope of getting Campaign work for his firm.

Why don't you just call out Bob next time you see him instead of posting bs on this blog. Everybody knows this was about Grimm not being happy about Capano's shots at Grimm and his Brooklyn boy Liam taking his shot at Capano with the hope of getting a job for himself if Grimm wins

So Golden was complicit since trying to impress Golden and trying to get a job on his campaign..
Boy oh boy, Marty really was upset with Capano and the Reform Party and not getting their line..this has to be great news for andrew

Anonymous said...

10:13 I already told Bob and he remembers exactly when it happened. Are you man enough to go tell Liam? Grimm could care less about Bob Capano. I really hope all this Liam bs isn’t because Bob is afraid of what Cats would do to him if he called out his friends son

Clearly Gale was correct with his analysis of the decision by Capano and the Reform Party in that what they did was the worst for Golden , hence the sudden attacks on Capano..

Well done Chairman, clearly you have them rattled and may have ended the Golden era and made all the hacks there jobless come January!

Yea but Bob should really grow a pair and call out the right people.

RESPONSE: THE "YOU DON'T SAY" EDITION

TO: "ANONYMOUS SAID... AT 10:53 AM"

I'M PRETTY SURE I DIDN'T SAY ALL OF THAT.....


My earlier post about the Reform Party's >>> PAUKENSCHLAG <<< of not endorsing Marty Golden, but instead offering him a possible primary for that line against Andy Gounardes merely stated what I thought then and still do believe. IT WAS THE WORST THING THAT BOB CAPANO COULD HAVE DONE TO MARTY AT THE TIME.

Although I'm sure that it did Marty no good, I never opined that it was the end or even the beginning of the end for our incumbent state senator..... All of that is yet to play out.

If this were a show, and I was directing it, I'd tell everybody exactly the same thing, listen for your cues, hit your marks and deliver your lines --- and don't worry about the other guy(s) doing his/their bit.....

Anonymous said...

Good points GM but have to say it is beyond creepy we have operatives who aren't even from around here following us around and conducting photo/video surveillance just to get on Golden's good side.

Which operatives “aren’t from here”?

RESPONSE: THE "I STILL DON'T HAVE ANY IDEA" EDITION

TO: "ANONYMOUS SAID... AT 11:25 AM"

THE UNIVERSAL "EYE" OF CELLULAR DEVICES HAS ELIMINATED ANY "PRIVACY" IN A PUBLIC SPACE..... ALL THAT'S LEFT IS A LITTLE BIT OF "ANONYMITY" --- BUT ONE INSTANCE OF RECOGNITION ELIMINATES THAT

Whether Bob was alone or travelling with somebody else is not clear --- although the story told by the picture's content and layout does make it look like he's alone. I'm sure Bob has some idea about whether he was accompanied or not, or whether he knew that somebody who recognized him was nearby.

Also when was it that this photo was taken ??? One of the oddest things about this is how a copy of the photo got into the hands of somebody who could use it against Bob a this particular time.

Any facts whatsoever would help build a context for this flap --- maybe even give it some real meaning. At least something more than the routine name-calling.....

Anonymous said...

Interesting points GM. It’s not at all complicated it is a very simple but kind of lengthy account. Bob and the boyfriend girlfriend duo of infamous Manhattan operatives were at same Manhattan GOP event some kind of party. They boyfriend also son of powerful well known GOP lawyer claims to have seen Bob hitting the sauce pretty hard. Says it was a coincidence that Bob and them got into same train car. Claims he saw Bob drinking a beer and that he took pictures. Was telling this story to anybody who would listen for over a year but wouldn’t show the picture to anyone. Most thought it was bs. Fast forward to when Manhattan duo relationships sour with Manhattan GOP and they can’t get much business, they become increasingly reliant on their good conservative buddy in Brooklyn. Very long story short they give him picture in hopes of landing goodwill and gigs on a Brooklyn campaign of an incumbent state senator.

Yes the powers came together to keep bob under continuous surveillance until they caught him in a gotcha moment.

Or its just a picture of a fat guy drinking beer.

I doubt much went into getting a picture of bob so it could be put on a twitter account.

You held on to that picture for a year, if it wasn’t important why post it right after Marty couldn’t get the Reform line? Alexandra and Robert you’re not from around here get over yourselves.

No one gives a shit if Bob Capano had a beer on the train. If you think they do, you are stupid.
