A DaTruthSquad Commenter Who Seems To Have It Right

Recently, a comment left by someone who posted as "Manalapan 1st" left some interesting perspective about da recent Manalapan election, da one-time alliance between da Queen and Land Baron Andy Boy, and what is and what may not be irrelevant. Let's look at what issues "Manalapan 1st" brought up, and what it may mean to Manalapan in da future.

MANALAPAN 1ST - The alliance. Even though nobody in the Republican heirarchy will admit it you were correct about it. It was obvious to everyone there was power sharing toward the end of 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009 and the start of 2010. It got what each political party wanted. They got to keep power with their top people and those who tried to step in were eliminated. It worked until two Republicans decided they didn't need Roth and Ward sticking their noses where they didn't belong. The Roth's knew it but couldn't get anyone to believe it.

DaTRUTH: More than one person has made da claim that there was not just an alliance created on da two-fold premise of maintaining power between a limited few, but to also combat someone they believed was a common enemy - da Mosked Man. Da Alliance allowed for both da Queen and Land Baron Andy Boy (LBAB) to become mayor, to lay da foundation for da highly publicized "Lawsuit to Nowhere" and da now-infamous First Amendment lawsuit that brought scorn and ridicule to Manalapan. It was inevitable that da alliance would end - it was a matter of who would end it for their own gain. This year, da gain was for LBAB, and he took full advantage. In one fell swoop, he took full power in town, won an election giving his Republicans a majority, made da Queen look bad and her Capo look like an amateur. In this issue, "Manalapan 1st" hits da nail on da head.

MANALAPAN 1ST - The Yorktowne Club. They wanted political power like they once had. They had become irrelevent. They wanted power back. Getting Jordan in was the lynchpin to making that happen, which was why he was selected to run this year, and why Roth became expendible. They never trusted Locricchio or Cohen to do what they were told. Now watch and see as two more members of the Yorktowne Club will run in 2011, and soon the MTC will be dominated by Yorktowne Club members.

DaTRUTH: There was a time when it could have been said da Yorktowne Club was a place where a bunch of old men got together to smoke cigars and reminisce about Ronald Reagan. Now, it appears its leaders have a new agenda - politics. This year, da #1 darling of da Yorktowne Club joined da Manalapan Township Committee, with LBAB, giving da Yorktowne Club membership 40% control of da Manalapan Township Committee. With two seats up in 2011, what are da odds that at least one of those seats are campaigned by a member of da Yorktowne Club? A winning Yorktowne Club member in 2011 will give da Club a majority control fo da entire political order of da town. Not bad, "Manalapan 1st."

MANALAPAN 1ST - You. The alliance made the Transcript irrelevent. The breakup of the alliance made Ward irrelevent. Kathy Barrata and her 3 person blog was irrelevent 2 seconds after she started it. Roth has become irrelevent on the MTC and will be next year as even Don Holland won't come to her rescue. Soon there will be a new leader of the Manalapan Republicans, and even McEnery will become irrelevent. Even though they tried twice and failed both times to get you, don't be surprised if they try again, this time introducing a new blog to go up against (Stu) you.

DaTRUTH: Interesting hypothesis there Manalapan 1st. True, da Snoozer certainly isn't what it used to be. Da alliance ending made da Capo di Tutti Capi seem like a political 2nd grader. It seems like Manalapan 1st was giving too much credit to KB and her site. M-1st also may be on da mark about da Queen and Farmer Don. With da Manalapan Republicans on a winning streak, da job of Iron Girth McEnery seems intact for now. Then, there's da "new blog to go up against" daTruthSquad.

DaTruth is, we at daTruthSquad always welcome new bloggers to da blogisphere. If "Manalapan 1st" wants to be a new blog, we would be happy to have you. There's always room for everyone's opinions.

MANALAPAN 1ST - If Roth is smart she'd not even bother to run in 2011. Nobody would be foolish enough to run with her. Much like Lucas she has chewed up and spit out those who ran with her and the Democrat dominance in Manalapan is now a distant memory as her power has been stripped to nothing. On January 1, 2012, there will be 5 Republicans on the MTC.

DaTRUTH: This was a very interesting scenario. True, da Queen is up for reelection next year, and equally true, unless Lawrence of Manalapan runs with her she'd probably be hard pressed to find someone who would think da Queen would have their back for three actual years. Add to this da fact that da Democratic Party in both this town and this county are as about as demoralized and beaten down worst than in long memory, then da likelihood da Queen will win in 2011 is as likely as Glenn Beck saying Ronald Reagan was a Socialist and President Obama is the best President we've ever had - and Bill Clinton was a close second.

Maybe "Manalapan 1st" is onto something here. If I were da Queen (who's to say), maybe da best thing she can do is not run in 2011, and let da Capo di Tutti Capi, da Boss of all Bosses Gerry "Anyone spectacularly unqualified want to run as a Democrat this year?" Ward pick another two spectacularly unqualified candidates that da Manalapan GOP can mop up da floor with. Maybe times will be better for Democrats in 2012 in da presidential and congressional election year - and da Queen can seize that.

DaTruth is, da Queen has serious concerns for running in 2011. Da Manalapan GOP smells so much blood in da water that there they feel like it's an "All You Can Eat Democrat Buffet." Add to this da way they recently beat down da two garage sale afterthoughts Gerry Ward dragged up from his basement to run against da establishment GOP, you can only imagine how he'll top his election Blunder of 2010. Now, add to that da arch enemy of da Manalapan GOP is running in 2011, and you know they will pull out every rabbit from their GOP hat to demoralize da Queen.

Finally, we would be honored if more blogs enter da Manalapan blogisphere. As both we and da rest of da blog writing world has shown, and despite comments from a certain former Snoozer editor, blogs and blogging isn't going away - it isn't a fad - and bloggers are not just a bunch of malcontents or people who "pull da wings off flies" or "dry gulchers." We are in fact da people who bring you da news of da new millennium. We have surpassed weekly coupon clippers as da place where people can get their news, and in many cases, we have da news before real actual newspapers do - and discuss that news and information in an honest forum open to debate without fear of retribution or scorn - and we are equally proud and honored to provide this service "For All Da People."

So, if you are really interested in blogging, on our website you will find links from da Electronic Frontier Foundation on blogger's rights, because da last thing you want is from some town's politicians to try to take your First Amendment rights away.

And that daTruth.

Hmmm, 14 comments on last week's issue; maybe this one will get you to 15.

Now here-s the rub--

"Even though they tried twice and failed both times to get you, don't be surprised if they try again, this time introducing a new blog to go up against (Stu) you."

By failing to take issue with this quote from "M-First", you have at last admitted that DTS is "Da Thing of Stu."

Manalapan First sounds very Republican to me.

I would doubt that anyone would try to blog in Manalapan. KB tried and her blog failed miserably despite those nauseating lawn signs. The Squad is the best there is and will always be remembered for putting the Transcript out of sight and mind.

Or maybe by now everyone has figured out that only a completely spaced out, senile, paranoid, obsessed security fraud would think Stu is datruthsquad, so there is no reason to debate the issue.

I don't really think it matters who the DTS is. What really seems to matter is that the DTS definitely gets under someone's skin. I wonder what that person has to hide that they don't want the DTS to find out?

Congratulations to Andrew Lucas and Jordan Maskowitz on their victory.

I think this Manalapan First brings up a very telling point about Michelle Roth. IMHO I think it was her party leader that may have sold her down the river. Now she has no power where she once ran everything. And in the minority in 2011 and even with no backing from her former running mate, she's powerless to do anything not just next year, but even if she manages to get reelected for years to come. Maybe the Democrats need new leadership?

And still no people of color in the Yorktowne club!

How many people of color belong to the Men's Club at Sons of Israel?

"How many people of color belong to the Men's Club at Sons of Israel?" Only someone from the Yorktowne Club -- reknowned for their anti-semitism -- would drag Sons of Israel into this thread out of nowhere. You have to be a total anti-semite to compare Sons of Israel, which accepts all Jewish members seeking to join, with the Yorktowne Club, which is invitation only and has notoriously excluded African Americans, Hispanics and Jews. Isn't it interesting that the writer targeted Sons of Israel, and not St. Thomas, or Old Tenant Church?
