The County Democratic Party Committee meeting was a snoozer tonight as the moribund committee could not muster the will or lacked the desire to mount even a modest challenge to Larry Bulman’s chairmanship. The highlight of the evening came as Bulman asked Andrew Bernstein the unofficial Press Secretary to Ron Kim to leave the room do to his position as a part time reporter for the Saratogian. Seems Larry doesn’t hold Andrew in the same esteem as Peter Martin who made a mousey comment to Larry about how young Andrew was one of the good ones. Al Turkheimer gave the city committee report which basically said. Hey we lost but we all did a great job and it’s nobody’s fault. I also heard a few murmurs that Ron Kim would like a shot at Tedisco. I second that as it’s always fun to see Ronny get his ass kicked. I guess he and Turkheimer didn’t get the memo about Kim losing by 1500 votes.
Know of this bodes well for City Democrats in future City elections for as long as this progressive fringe controls the city party and the selection of future city candidates the Republicans will dominate city government to an extent not seen since the sixties. We will have to wait and see what happens at the Saturday morning meeting of the city committee. And for those waiting for me to say I was wrong? I WAS WRONG.
