Pain And Humiliation

Thouught today was going to be an easy one, even with us blogging from Mexico City. Archclown got in the papers again, causing clueless Manhattan-based w*nkers to sigh "ah bless" yet again. We're persuing the papers, and it turns out that Brooklyn party boss Clarence Norman got convicted for a couple of small fundraising violations, but with all sorts of juicy judge-tampering to be alleged in future trials. If you ever wonder why we're so hard on Markowitz, a man with even less power than shame, it's because, as a Democrat, and given that he got elected with a nod from Norman, he's the amiable front for one of the most corrupt county Democratic parties in the country.

Normally we'd riff on this a bit longer, and we will confess we are slightly more amenable to Norman's upfront roguishness than the seediness of his nemesis Joe Hynes. But then the puffy-eyed influence-monger Tom DeLay got indicted, and we remember, that while me may not get to vote for any of these freaks, it's more fun to watch some toe-rags go down than others. Norman, Markowitz, you're tossbungles, but you're friends with angels.

We've already almost forgiven you, petal.
