Hiram returns to the fold

From the Daily News:

Sen. Hiram Monserrate has switched sides - again.

"I'm coming home," the Queens Democrat told the Daily News in an exclusive interview on Sunday.

Monserrate stunned the state's political establishment and paralyzed the Legislature a week ago when he rebelled against his own party and voted with fellow Democrat Sen. Pedro Espada Jr. of the Bronx to hand control of the Senate to the Republican minority.

The mercurial Monserrate is set to announce at a morning press conference on Monday that he is returning to the Democratic caucus - without Espada.

His decision creates an astonishing 31-31 deadlock in the Senate and further muddles the question of which party controls that body.

He needs to dump the bullshit Scientology and start seeing a shrink now. The crazier he gets, the richer he gets.

Hiram doesn't need to walk away from the dems.. he just needs them to see things his way. So, Hiram, why don't you bitch-slap your boy Malcomb, pull his hair, and smash a glass in his face?

That's negotiation- the Hiram Monserrate way.

Hiram, you get fatter, uglier, and dumber every day.

And stop pickin' your nose in front of the Rev. Al!

What a joke!

Monserrate goes and kisses the ring of Al Sharpton, and now things are suddenly fine and dandy?

When did Al Sharpton acquire respectability?

Maybe he didn't think he had enough publicity after he cut up his girlfriend's face?

Again, why is he not in prison for that?

He should be in jail and not in any kind of political office.

because he hasn't been convicted yet?

So what? If he was destitute, he'd be in Rikers right now awaiting trial.

Rev Al and the Sharp Tones.

Bloomberg started this.

The public wish is merely something to be danced around.

Ambition, now that's the ticket!

Really? Poor people don't get released on their own recognizence when the complainant wants to drop the charges?

Is he out on bail or was he ROR'ed?

He probably cut a nice deal with the county to have his indictment dismissed in exchange for him coming back.

Hiram is a disgrace to Latinos said...

Dear Queens Crap,

Just want everybody to know that piece of crap Hiram Monserrate do not truly represent the Latin American people. Most of us are not stupid, incompetent, or violent like Mr. Monserrate. Fuck Mr. Monserrate. He is an embarrassment to all Latin Americans and to all New Yorkers. May he reside in a cesspool.

Sincerely,

Jose

I notice the Reverend Al Sharpton taking precious time away from his ecclesiastical duties to get his face in the paper! A bucks a buck, right Al?

PizzaBagel said...

Yup. As Mayor Mike said several months ago about the Right Reverend Al, he is truly a "calming influence on the city." Ha! That bag o' crap should have had zero credibility years ago and faded away -- gracefully or not -- but still he maintains his stranglehold on the media and the pols.

UNREAL he's on the WNYC replay right now.
The radio station is playing "Welcom back Kotter" song Newsday, Dailey News and Albany Times is calling in calling him god and kissing his ass.

Just last week WNYC was frying him on the air for cutting up his girlfriend.
What gives ?
