Rumor has it that Nick Langworthy, the incompetent GOP Chair in Erie County, wants to be elevated to state chair. However, the Peter Principle states that people rise to the level of their own incompetence. Nick is already at his level.
Let’s quickly review his year.
He backed Jim Domagalski for Volker’s seat. Jim lost in spite of spending a quarter of a million dollars.
He talked Jill Rowland out of beating Brian Higgins so that sure loser Roberto would run.
He was unable to get Carl a speaking gig at the state convention and Carl got few votes there. Camp Paladino have convinced themselves that this wasted trip to NYC helped Carl. Huh? Much money was wasted and the sucking up to the GOP machine contradicted what should have been Carl’s populist message of FU to the machine.
Now, let’s look at Nov. 2nd.
All statewide candidates lost, including four backed by Nick: Carl, Donovan, Wilson and Townsend.
Supreme Court: four losses out of five when Nick was offered two freebies.NOTE: THE BOLDFACE PART IS DISPUTED SO LEAVE IT AT LOST FOUR OF FIVE.
Congress: Roberto lost badly in a competitive district.
State senate: Quinn lost in a crucial race.
Grisanti ahead narrowly but given little support by Langworthy.
Worst of all, instead of working with the tea party movement, Langworthy went to war against it. Right back at ya Nick.
Instead of Langworthy, how about the Niagara County Chair, whoever that is, for state chair? After all, it was Niagara County that elected Grisanti (apparently).
Update: Add Corwin to the list.
