2010 Marks Three Years of Dwindling Active Enrollment Under GOP Chairman Eaton

December 31, 2010

While this might have been the year of Scott Brown and the Tea Party, the GOP in Brooklyn is atrophying at a sad rate.

Since he became chairman, Craig “The Duke of Bay Ridge” Eaton has seen thousands of active Republicans disappear from the party’s ranks, confirming much of the criticism the writers of Atlas Shrugs in Brooklyn have directed at the failed “leader.”

We have some new numbers, and we thought we’d share them with you.

The truth of the situation is lost on the Bay Ridge GOP apologists and thuggish bouncers like District Leader Russell Gallo and his sidekick at the GOP’s faux radio program.

They say that all is well in the party and that this year has seen nothing but growth and prosperity.

If only those lies were true.

Rather than increase active enrollment, as I previously indicated, Eaton has seen it shrivel up, even in a year where the GOP saw major gains nationwide.

As of November 2008, there were 116,985 active Republicans in the borough. In November of 2009, that number decreased to 115,083. Then, just this past November, more bad news came as the number dropped to 114,671. (Thanks to one GOP insider for bringing these specifics to our attention.)

This is progress?

Meanwhile, the number of Blanks in Brooklyn increased significantly, which means the GOP is not effectively making its case to win over Independents.

In fact, the similarities between Craig Eaton and big government supporters are becoming closer and closer: both claim to be doing miraculous things, are spending a lot of money to do them, and “achieving” losses rather than solid gains.

As if we needed further evidence of the party falling apart during his reign, this brings the realities of the situation into perspective.

So, as we come into a new year, I say (with genuine sarcasm) thank you Chairman Eaton for ruining my party.

This new year, allow us to return the favor.

    Hi Luke, Hi Britta, how’s Katonah, did Britta find a job yet, or do unemployment benefits come in handy when it comes to blogging?

    Say hi to Jonathan for me in a twitter message, I am sure he’s partying with some cheese and is lightly buzzed by now.

    Kiss, Kiss.

    Everybody is entitled to their own opinion — but not to
    their own facts. Remember what we’ve said, “The numbers don’t lie,
    but TJIUA and AAA do.” They say the numbers are up…we say they
    are down — Remember, “A” and “not-A” cannot “exist” simultaneously
    in the same time, and place, and sense. As Spock (Mister not
    Doctor) would say, “It’s not logical.” We accept the dreary ASIB
    numbers, because they are right. We reject the happy horseshit
    TJIUA and Brooklyn Blog Radio numbers, because, happy or not,
    horseshit is still horseshit. Use it for the flower beds.
    Nonetheless, there is good news as we ring down the old. Tonight,
    New Year’s Eve 2010, an informal committee of existentialists* has
    chosen to formally elevate two other aspirants to the rank of
    “Existential Threat” to the Brooklyn GOP Establishment, the KCRP
    Leadership, the Bay Ridge Cabal and the Grand Master of Illusion
    and Duke of Bay Ridge, Craig Eaton. Now fully vested as
    “Existential Threats”, with all of the rights, emoluments and
    entitlements attendant thereto, are: Roy J. Antoun and James P.
    McCall. These two knights errant, without armor and with woeful
    countenance, join the two worthy Paladins who have gone before —
    Jonathan J. Judge and Il Dottore-Professore Arnaldo Ferraro.
    Felicitations, Salutations and Congratulations to the “Few …
    Happy Few… Band of Brothers…” (W.S.) __________________ * We do
    include as “existentialist”, any Christian Existentialist of the
    style and brand of Søren Aabye Kierkegaard.

    Are you guys admitting that you are working to destroy the
    republican party when you say: “So, as we come into a new year, I
    say (with genuine sarcasm) thank you Chairman Eaton for ruining my
    party. This new year, allow us to return the favor.” Are you
    democrats or republicans? Also, your numbers are deceiving. Active
    status means nothing. Our candidates consistently achieve higher
    vote totals and percentages than the party enrollment stats
    throughout the borough while the democrats do not. If you guys were
    republicans you would know this. Happy New Year

      Someone’s missing a few screws. In a Republican year, EVERY GOP candidate lost in Brooklyn. What about that fact is deceiving. And actually active GOP numbers is the best indicator there is. It avoids having to deal with numbers bloated by changes of address and deaths.

      No one in good conscience can actually say the party has grown under Chairman Eaton, and this year, I’m sure a variety of forces will conglomerate to take on the failed Chairman.

      That’s clearly what the blog author is talking about. But to explain that fact to someone who is pro-establishment, such as you are, would require brain surgery or an exorcism, depending on whether you’re a member of the Cathedral Club or not lol

    • Brooklyn GOP in retreat in face of reformers attacks permalink
      January 1, 2011 11:29 am

      Craig Eaton’s hate bloggers and possibly Chairman Eaton
      himself have reversed themselves over and over in the face of
      attacks by the Real-Republican Reformers. *** The most recent
      example is their reversal of their several-months-long boycott on
      commenting here at ASIB. One must conclude that this is their
      acknowledgment that very few people are reading their stuff at the
      Eaton-supported hate blog “The Jig is Up Atlas”. Please note that
      TJIUA’s claims of higher hit totals and “value”, etc., were
      contemporaneous with the return of Eaton’s commentariat to these
      precincts. The Real-Republican Reformers’ attacks will pick up
      steam as we move into the 2011 Republican Organizational Primary
      year. *** Prediction: “The Jig is Up Atlas” will be taken down by
      some time in Sspring 2011 (if not sooner). This will be directly
      due to frontal attacks by several Real-Republican Reformers on
      TJIUA’s very essence – lies, constituting scandalous, slanderous
      and libelous material. *** Let’s see what happens next.

        “Atlas Judge” took something “We’ll get you, ….., and your little dog too hahahahahahahahaha” from WOO (which TJIUA did big time for part of their “iconic” graphic webscape).

        Guys when you use it, remember where it came from and what happens next — how did things turn out for ykw after she said “We’ll get you, ….., and your little dog too hahahahahahahahaha”? — hint) “…melting…”

    As someone on the ground in the party, I haven’t seen things this bad ever. Eaton has fostered so much discontent, I’m confident a whole variety of people–including people in his own faction–will movie to kick him out of his chairmanship.

    Kiss it goodbye, Craigy. They’re coming to get you 😉

        LRP was done in 2010.

        Freddy M was done in 2010.

        Arnaldo F was done in 2009.

        Susan C and James Mic are the zombies of Brooklyn politics. They are not alive but not quite dead. Mark Fisher can’t say the same though.

        LRP is done? You’d have to ask her that.

        Fred M? You’d have to ask him that.

        Arnaldo F? I don’t think so.

        As for your other comments, well, you’re a bit of a slimeball, aren’t you?

    Hey isn’t Jonathan good pals with Al Cleary?

    You know the same guy involved in that Mark Fisher death, who used daddy’s millions, to buy him out of trouble, and some.

    Jonathan’s other good pals George Smith, who Jonathan even defended once his criminal past came to light.

    Jonathan’s other good pal of course Arnaldo Ferraro the master tax cheat, and who’s son of course tried to snuff out a police officer, good thing he failed kind of like Jonathan did at getting on the ballot.

    Jonathan keeps good company with Brooklyn’s most wanted.

    But it must take one slimeball to know one slimeball, although in Jonathan’s case that must be more than one can count.

    Speaking of flogging for political gain, is James McCall still attacking his fellow parishioners, and priests.

    What a slimeball that guy is, no wonder Ralphie boy keeps him on the short leash.

    Though I hear, Justy is in line to next walk the dog.

    One must wonder how much cash did McCall infuse to Justy’s new club.

    Talk about anti-catholic, anti-religious money to say the least.

    I think in the coming months for McCall it’s going to be 2 minutes for roughing on the blogs, 2 minutes probation for carrying the Democrats water, and my favorite 5 minutes for political game misconduct.
