Vallone really proud of Machine endorsement

From the Times Ledger:

The Queens County Democratic Party has endorsed Councilman Paul Vallone (D-Bayside) for the upcoming municipal elections. As the incumbent, Vallone represents northeast Queens, from Flushing to Douglaston, and faces community activist and land use expert Paul Graziano in the Democratic primary.

Vallone received unanimous support from the party and expressed gratitude to the Queens Democratic chairman, U.S. Rep. Joseph Crowley (D-Jackson Heights), for the standing by him.

“To stand side-by-side with our fellow Queens Democrats and our leader, Congressman Joe Crowley, and receive their unanimous endorsement will always be one of the proudest moments for me and my whole family,” Vallone said. “Representing my district has been the best four years of my life. We have put northeast Queens not only back on the map, but on top of it!”


Getting the nod from the corrupt Queens Machine is one of your proudest moments? That sure tells us a lot about you.

Crowley is an air-head. He even looks and sounds uneducated.

Is Vallone morphing into a Cone Head?

What's with the shape of his head?

Was this taken at a bald politician convention?

Jeez, he looks like a Dick Tracy villain with that chrome dome. Either that or Beldar.

Dr. Evil doesn't get that Crowley's endorsement is a kiss of death in 2017. What an idiot.

How do you run an election campaign?

If I were Stephen Colbert, I'd wonder what kind of services Stinky had to provide to get Crowley's endorsement. Oh, that's right - he just bends over for the developers.

I noticed that pointy head a while ago, I knew I wasn't imagining it.

Primary this bald asshole.

If Graziano wants to "up" his numbers, he's got to lop off that stupid ponytail. Appearances matter. Or the race will be ponytail vs pate? The ponytail loses.

Classic Queens. Read this discussion.

Now try to drown a gnat in it.

People generally deserve the reps they get. After all, tho it might seem logical,

Martians did not put those people there.

We did.

"The ponytail loses."

Unfair but very true.

Perhaps he should have an auction for his chopped 'tail and donate the proceeds to the St. Baldrick's Foundation. Good publicity.

Gary W said...

Perhaps Vallone is a Zika baby.

Paul your a disgrace! You have done shit for whitestone. The village is filthy. You never come by unless its a photo-op. You must be so proud to stand with the queens mob Don of pols. Keep on being a nothing. You will never be your dad. He's saved and made you and jr, otherwise neither of you wouldn't be anything.

I SWEAR AL CENTOLA NEEDS TO RUN ALREADY. HE CAN BEAT VALLONE. GRAZIANO SEEMS LIKE A GREAT GUY AND I KNOW AL LIKES AND RESPECTS HIM BUT I DONT SEE THE SHEEP BEING SWAYED. AL ON THE OTHER HAND IS THE ONLY ONE THAT CAN PULL IT OFF.

Now, you can call both of these cradle-to-grave, government-bozo parasites all of the names that you like, fellow peasants, but the 'friendly robbers' are fleecing your pockets in broad daylight, and your ONLY civic call to action is to publicly lampoon them, as they are both crying all the way to the bank--with YOUR taxpayer funded money, no less?

The reason why you have these two hyper-corrupt, entrenched, establishment-rigged hustler/sociopaths in the first place is because of decades of missing activism, protest, rally and resistance in the communities that these weasel f**kwads continue to betray with impunity--COMPLIMENTS of public fools taking jabs at them like you--the REAL losers of your district! Delicious irony, indeed!

Do you have a pony tail too, George? At least Graz has hair and doesn't look like a Sicilian salami head!

Salami did you say?
That's Valone-y baloney....developers' lobbyist and Crowley's stooge!

I agree the pony tail could cost some votes !

As the old saying goes: You can't make a first impression a second time.

First time I saw Graziano, I thought WTF is that floppy thing on the back of his head?

It distracts from his message.

Look, Vallone is naturally bald. He shaves his pate to conceal this fact. Baldness is endemic to the Vallones. (Peter, Sr.wore a wig for years and then had a transplant.) If Paul Vallone let his hair grow, he would look like a diminutive laughable dwarf. His faux-macho Mussolini mien is consciously constructed to influence the easily-fooled-by appearance district voters.

Graziano, bite the bullet and ditch already that ridiculousl-looking horse schvantz.

These sophomoric attacks are just sad, and they say so much more about the idiots on this thread than they could ever say about two corrupt, cradle-to-grave government politicians, both of whom have remained unchallenged for years——but it's easier to make derogatory names online than it is to show up in person and protest.

Frankly, Queens County deserves them both (and all others within this already ravaged-and-tonsured borough of kleptocrats, who've betrayed public trust). So, keep attacking these publicly elected fools online, morons. After all, it was your communities who voted them in (repeatedly), and now you finally awoke from suspended animation——and, all you got is attacks on their looks without challenging ANY authority? All of you are even more pathetic than the ones whom you 'Attack And Retreat, Accuse And Evade!'

Sad AND pathetic——every single one of you!

George: I have long hair. I pull it back into a ponytail. Like it or don't - I don't really care.

I'll tell you what I do care about: building on the significant number of votes I received in 2013 to win against Paul Vallone in this election - not for having long hair vs. none, but for the fact that he's been a terrible Councilmember for 3.5 years and he needs to go. I'm happy to match my 20+ years of volunteer public service against his pay-for-play activities any day of the week.

Whatever happened to Mike Abel? He never had the desire to get back into politics?

Unfortunately, some voters do. Respectfully, you're PR needs work. In the meantime, chrome-dome wins again.

PS Paul. I checked out your Media/Press segment on your website. Look at The Flickr Photo #3 (profile). You do not have long hair and in my opinion in order for a ponytail to look good, the hair needs volume and the ponytail has to flow down your back. Your head thing lacks these. A good example of a guy wearing a ponytail is the leftwing lawyer/radio personality Ron Kuby. Agree or disagree with his politics, his ponytail looks good. Check it out HERE. That thing on the back of your head reminds me of an old spinster's bun. Couple that with a suit and a tie and the voters are left scratching their heads; "What is this? Why's he doing that?". BTW, many years ago I shaved my head for that Mr. Clean look, It took me 2 hours. I gave up on it because my head was freezing in August and it was, I realized, high maintenance. In order for Vallone to shave his stupid-looking pate, he has to spend a great deal of time maintaining the look or he has to go to the barbershop for a maintenance head-shave maybe every 3-4 days so his baldness isn't apparent.

Also, the voters elected JFK because he had a nice head of hair. And Trump's "do" still needs analyzing.

Paul, either cut that knotty-looking thing off OR grow it longer with a volume-enhancing shampoo.

PPS I appear in public with a paperbag over my head.

"Vallone received unanimous support from the party"

If all the endorsements are decided by Crowley, how does it get described as "unanimous"?

The Saturday Night Live Church Lady said...

I'm voting for Graziano. So there!

Anonymous said...

Vallone is delusional - his area of Queens has deteriorated. Flushing is a hot mess of filth and grid lock, all the roadways are more congested, its getting extremely difficult to find parking, the crime rate is rising and the level of over development in our neighborhoods is frightening. Our quality of life is in the toilet. There is no intelligent life in this borough.

To the Saturday Night Live Church Lady: Alas, it doesn't matter whom you vote for anymore, when our entire electoral process is more corrupt than many Third World countries. There IS no honest, ethical leadership (that leads by example) anymore (if ever), because the two-party-machine-failed duopoly is on the verge of collapse.

Besides, taxation without representation can't get any worse than right now, because ALL politicians (not public servants), now embody a dereliction of public duty that is buttressed ONLY by the total lack of respect, arrogance and hostile environment that ever languishing constituents like me are faced with, each time I call one of their unresponsive offices of epic fail and get a hostile environment foisted upon me by one of their 'Friends & Family' payroll monkeys, all of whom are an embarrassment to ACTUAL primates! Nope—it is NEVER ending!

These two, openly practicing kleptocrats (like everyone else in politics who lie, cheat and steal for a living——easier than they breathe!), are heinous examples of what a pathological, treasonous, traitorous SCOURGE looks like——and, one that DEVALUES all honesty itself——to obliterating effect!

And, yet, there they are: Two arrogant, feigning clueless cue balls engaged in a continual loop of vile, vapid and vacuous lies, deniability (and repeating lies that are 'KNOWINGLY' FALSE), and PRIVATE SPLENDOR——versus, PUBLIC SQUALOR, adversity, beggary, obscurity and quiet desperation for their ever languishing constituency. And, the public be damned (again and STILL)!

Of course it's been the best four years of his life, all he does is pop in an out of photo ops. He doesn't have to bother with returning calls, dealing with issues in his district or solving problems. He leaves that to the civics and Tony Avella.
