Yesterday Howie Carr committed journalistic man on man rape on Judge Thomas Connolly.
Judge Connolly is the Superior Court Judge assigned to hear the request for the injunction bought by the state Republican Party to prohibit the Governor from exercising the emergency rights to accelerate the effective date of legislation granted to him under the state’s constitution..
As David correctly pointed out this was a lay-up for the injunction opponents. If Dick Cheney was the judge he most likely would have denied the request.
Connolly, by the way, was a highly successful trial lawyer before becoming a judge. He is worth millions. He is one judge that doesn’t need the job. And he is by the accounts of hundreds of lawyers that have appeared before him one of the best judges in the Superior Court.
So Howie goes after Connolly and brings up the same crap. Political donations to this and that and blah blah blah.
But here is the rub. Connolly is an ex-seminarian and Howie makes a reference to all the perverts that came out of the seminary and gives the guilt by association hint.
He then does a little more hinting that the former seminarian is either a pervert or homosexual (not that there is anything wrong with that) or someone extremely sympathetic with perverts and homosexuals thus bias from the bench.
Catholics and gays right supporters should be up in arms that a major daily allows their columnist to indict individuals with veiled accusations of sexual abuse of children or sympathy to child rapists. Howie does this while at the same time throwing homosexuals into the same group of sexual deviants.
Time to Boycott Howie advertisers. Off hand the only ones I can think of are the auto insurance guy (the Commissioner), Barry Armstrong (the financial guy), the olive oil company and the vet he has on every so often. Let’s start collecting names of Howie’s WRKO advertisers and have a BMG and friends Boycott until Howie starts acting nice. That’s right, “nice”. All these small time business that support his show should be taken to task by the local blogging community.
Howie Carr, the guy with the first failed marriage, first set of kids he never talks about, sealed divorce records, does not believe contracts apply to him, committed fraud by drawing his own name in the license plate lottery (at very least a conflict) and BTW puts his daughter Charlotte in the public eye but constantly referring to her on his show and having her in studio. Howie my boy, by putting her out there you allow her to become a legitimate wordsmith target by some blogger willing to go down to your level. How about your upper crust boarding school producer Sandy? Who is she dating? What’s in her background?
So Howie, my suggestion is to see a shrink and get to the root of this deep seeded hate and anger towards those who have succeeded in life. Perhaps hypnotism to bring back those events at Deerfield that obviously scarred you for life. (Something in the locker room or shower perhaps?)
Question Howie, how do you write the way you do and expect your kids to still respect you as they get older and wiser? What does your first set of kids really think of you?
