Holiday Memories: Bay Ridge GOP Wishes Everyone a Merry Christmas
As the spirit of the season fills the radios, store fronts, and even the political discourse (how many Senators and congressmen have used the terms “grinch” and “Scrooge” lately?), I recalled this video that popped up as a comment on our blog just about a year ago.
It led many of the authors of our blog and our readers to engage in fits of uncontrollable laughter.
The video features images of Brooklyn GOP Chairman Craig “The Duke” Eaton, political consultant Gerry O’Brien, District Leader Russell Gallo, Marty Golden consultant and alleged GOP hate blogger Jeffrey Kraus, and Urban Elephants guru Jay Golub singing a medley of Christmas songs in high pitched voices dressed as elves.
Indeed, it was Mr. Golub who first noticed the video and gave it some prominence on his blog, proclaiming that he had been “Elfed by Atlas Shrugs in Brooklyn.” That page has been viewed over 1350 times since then.
As I indicated to Mr. Golub, none of our Atlas writers claimed responsibility for the video, which was anonymously posted. (I can only imagine Mr. Golub was “Elfed” given his then negative statements toward our blog and reform movement at the time, to which some of our readers took offense).
But, looking back and thinking of all the laughs it inspired, we sort of wish it had been us. 😉
