Gopal slams Bennett, Little over Christine O’Donnell appearance

Monmouth County Democratic Chairman Vin Gopal issued a scathing statement to Politickernj condemning Monmouth GOP Chairman John Bennett and 6th District Congressional nominee Anna Little for their decision to bring Christine O’Donnell to Monmouth County for a Little fundraiser next week.

“The Monmouth County Republican Party and their star candidate Anna Little are teaming up with the most extreme candidate ever to run for the U.S. Senate – an individual who openly talked about her involvement in witchcraft and who rejected the most basic theory of science, evolution,” Gopal said. “This is who extremist Anna Little and the Monmouth County Republicans are choosing to align themselves with and one has to wonder if they share Ms. O’Donnell’s views on evolution, witchcraft, women in the military and the countless issues in which she is out of touch with not just the residents in Monmouth County, but members of her own party. It becomes scarier everyday what a Congresswoman Anna Little would like.”

Gopal cited several of O’Donnell’s quotes made on Bill Maher’s Politically Incorrect TV show and the FoxNews O’Reilly Factor in making his case that O’Donnell is detached from the mainstream.

“Who do they think they’re going to get to pay $2500 to meet that lunatic?” Gopal said when reached by MMM.

Neither Bennett nor Little were immediately available for comment.

    What a classless nerd. Nobody gives a damn what this twirp has to say. Anytime a Democrat calls a Republican “extreme” it just means that the latter is a conservative opposed to the far left, socialist gospel. You want extreme Vin? How about the America-hating, Bill Ayers-loving, Saul Alinsky-imitating, Jeremiah Wright-worshipping, Muslim socialist in the White House? Hey Vin, don’t you have a business to run into the ground?

  2. Proud Democrat said at 8:25 pm on August 7th, 2012:

    maybe you just don’t care? Clearly this blogger at MoreMonmouthMusings and Politicker cared?

    Proud Republican = believing that President Obama is a Muslim?

    don’t you mean Proud Republican = Proud piece of racist trash

    Thank you for reminding me why I left the Republican Party years ago – actually i didn’t leave the party, people like you made me leave

    See you in November with an Obama, Menendez, Pallone re-election you piece of crap

  3. No approval - surprise surprise said at 9:04 pm on August 7th, 2012:

    OK, so I guess John should have called Vin to ask permission or approval. PLEASE GIVE ME A BREAK.

    When Measly had O’donnell over to his house for a fund raiser Art didn’t raise one flag or issue.


    She raised more money than Joe K has, she is a national figure. Vin is upset because it helps the conservative cause.

  4. Art Gallagher said at 9:11 pm on August 7th, 2012:

    When Measly had O’donnell over to his house for a fund raiser Art didn’t raise one flag or issue.

    Actually I did have an issue with it. I made it clear to Charles that if I attended, the event would be on the record and that I want to interview O’Donnell. She declined and wanted the event off the record. I didn’t attend.

  5. Dennis Kucinich said at 9:20 pm on August 7th, 2012:

    Vin, what were you saying about backing “extreme” candidates? And say hello to Joe Vas for me! — Your best friend, Dennis Kucinich.

  6. Bob English said at 9:24 pm on August 7th, 2012:

    I can’t imagine anyone in their right mind making Miss O’Donnell their first choice when looking for someone to appear at a fundraiser in Monmouth County which begs the question as to whether she was the only person who would agree to this?

    At any rate, I hope that someone who posts on MMM does attend so they can share with everyone details of an evening that is likely to be a train wreck.

  7. Jerry said at 9:30 pm on August 7th, 2012:

    My sources tell me that Little is claiming that this was Bennett’s idea and that she claims to have not wanted any part of this. I think Anna is telling Little lies because she surely had to approve of this, but I do believe Bennett was involved.

    It’s a disaster, just like Bennett and just like Little.

  8. how do you know said at 9:34 pm on August 7th, 2012:

    it was a first choice??.. and, hey, it’s getting some ink and i.d., isn’t it?.. what’s the phrase, any publicity’s good, if ya spell the name right?..I say: oh, Vin, in a first foray into chairmans-ville,why would you pick on a long-shot race that’s up against millions of union dollars, as always?. could it be because you have nothing to ofer in the way of county candidates, yet again?.. if I could pick which chair to be this year, it’d be Bennett over Gopal, by a very long mile!

  9. Give me a break said at 9:37 pm on August 7th, 2012:

    Typical hypocrite Democrat. They want to try and trump up some nonsense about a GOP “war on women” yet look at what these low lives do to any conservative woman. In the liberal Democrat world, if you aren’t a wild-eyed leftie they call you names like “lunatic.” And this is the lightweight who took Vic Scudiery’s place? Who, by the way, was a gentleman who would never lower himself to such a bush league comment.

  10. the problem is, said at 9:40 pm on August 7th, 2012:

    we have so many “experts” who know- all, have absolutely no idea of how to run a campaign, take themselves far too seriously, are way- overly judgmental with little to back it up, and have zero sense of adventure,fun, or humor, at all!!..wow, what tight—–es we can be, for Pete’s sake! – lighten up, for once,and focus on getting rid of all the socialists, ok?

  11. If I was Anna right now, said at 9:43 pm on August 7th, 2012:

    hell, I’d go with it, and get a hundred little wisk brooms at the dollar store, put my name on them, and invite people to “come fly with me” to Washington, where we can start to “sweep that cesspool clean”!

  12. Concerned Citizen said at 10:41 pm on August 7th, 2012:

    This is so embarrassing.

  13. Justified Right said at 7:44 am on August 8th, 2012:

    Would love to pick Vin’s brain about what he actually knows about evolution.

  14. Schwoops said at 7:47 am on August 8th, 2012:

    I love how we get so defensive over the truth. Get attacked. Pivot. Deflect onto something about the accuser. To defend this action, one side says “well, the other side is doing it to us, so…” Wash. Rinse. Repeat. An endless Vicious Cycle.

    Note that no one actually defended O’Donnell, just a pivoted attack on Gopal, Gallagher and whom ever else points out the lunacy & embarrassment of having this person headline a fundraiser.

  15. Freespeaker1976 said at 8:34 am on August 8th, 2012:

    IMHO the real story is that it doesn’t matter of O’Donnell does the fundraiser. Anna Little is NOT going to win. I think it’s just about trying to cover that negative balance with the rabid wing of the Tea Party.

    The joker is the $2500 ticket price. From what I know of the Tea Party people in the area, they seem NOT to be the kind of people who have that kind of money

  16. Freebies for all said at 12:55 pm on August 8th, 2012:

    How many tickets will be “freebies”?

  17. truth hurts said at 3:02 pm on August 8th, 2012:

    O Donnell is a terrible person to align yourself with. As a Republican, you have to admit she is out of touch, horrible public speaker and interviewer and a known train wreck for conservatives. Good luck to all that think differently.

  18. joe killeen said at 4:44 pm on August 8th, 2012:

    Most disturbing is the intensity of the emotions and the paucity of reasoning. It should be a time of people narrowing their options and putting the magnifying glass to the issues. Instead the headlines go to another effort to raise more funds to provide more opportunities to waste time and money and an excuse to avoid anyone having to make a stand, take some simple straight forward positions on which to be judged.

  19. neptune said at 5:40 pm on August 8th, 2012:

    How about the fact that Gov. Christie would not support this woman because of how radioactive she was? (Odonnell)

  20. Proud Republican said at 6:13 pm on August 8th, 2012:

    Ok “schwoops” I’ll defend her. Her beliefs in lower taxes, smaller government, pro-life, a strong military, secure borders, no government takeover of health care all sound good to me. You know why liberal Democrats hate her? Because she doesn’t buy in to open borders, removing the work requirement for welfare, putting a suture into the back of the head of a fetus, punishing society’s most productive citizens, calling two guys and a glory hole a marriage or any of the other “mainstream” ideas that our America-hating, Muslim president is enamored with. Since the liberals can’t beat her on the field of ideas, they have to go back to her high school days to try and manufacture some silly issue.

  21. Whoa said at 6:45 pm on August 8th, 2012:

    Art – this guy looks like a Bollywood pimp!

  22. Star Candidate???? said at 7:12 pm on August 8th, 2012:

    Is he for real? By no means is Anna Little the star candidate of Monmouth County. She the LAST thing we wanted.

  23. Bob English said at 7:52 pm on August 8th, 2012:

    The guy (President Clinton) who signed the bill calling for the work requiremts for welfare has noted the Romeny ad is not true. So please spare everyone for the next 3 months and dont keep bringing up another Romney campaign lie.

  24. Proud Republican said at 9:55 pm on August 8th, 2012:

    Bob English – you are wearing me out correcting you. Dick Morris, the guy who actually wrote the bill, said that not only is Romney right, but Obama’s action is illegal. Obama probably promised Clinton a few hot interns in exchange for covering our Muslim president’s butt. How’s this for a lie Bobby – Obama’s latest ad tries to blame a woman’s death on Romney. Here are the facts – Romney left Bain in 1999. The steel company the woman’s husband worked for closed in 2001. The woman had her own health insurance for the family from her job from 2001 on. She got sick in 2005. Now you tell me, how is that in any way Romney’s fault? Don’t bother, it’s just more of the same from the worst, most destructive and dishonest president this country has ever seen.

  25. Bob English said at 11:53 pm on August 8th, 2012:

    Proud: I don’t like that comercial. Wish you could say the same on some of the flat out lies/ads that have come out of the Romeny campaign.

    The best moment of the day though (if not the entire campaign) was Romeny’s spokeswoman said on Fox this morning “To that point, if the people had been in Massachusetts, under Governor Romney’s health care plan, they would have had health care.”

    And you know what, she was honost and 100% right. So why than are all of the far right extremists in the party upset with that statement? Maybe becasue it reminded them that Romey’s greatest acheivement as Governor was Romneycare.

  26. joe killeen said at 9:47 am on August 9th, 2012:

    Proud Republican please don’t lose track of history as well as the facts, worst president in history, whatever your beliefs, he hasn’t had to wave from the door of a helicopter getting out of Dodge before the sherrif got to him.

  27. @Proud Re: Bobbie Boy said at 11:24 am on August 9th, 2012:

    Proud, we’re beating our heads against the wall with Bobbie. When he is caught in a loosing position, he switches tracks and starts attacking on something else.

    Bobbie, the fact that all you say is “I don’t like that commercial” instead of CONDEMNING IT, makes you as bad as the people that wrote it.

    Bobbie, why are we upset at the Romney camp’s statement on the “Romney Killed My Wife Ad?” Because it’s weak and off point.

    Michelle Malkin said it best this morning…


    It’s because Romney should be beating the crap out of the Obummer campaign for lying, Romney should be beating the crap out of the Democrats on Free Speech, Romney should be beating the crap out of The Great Job Destroyer on the 8.3% unemployment, ect. Instead, we get Milquetoast when we should be WAY ahead.

  28. Not Twisted Words, Or Words Taken Out Of Context said at 12:18 pm on August 9th, 2012:

    But BOLD FACE Lies From The Thug In Chief Campaign, And People Like Killeen, Bobbie & Ambrosia Refuse To Condemn The Campaign


  29. joe killeen said at 1:29 pm on August 9th, 2012:

    I condemn all campaigns. Now will you at least consider that no politician, no party or political position deserves unquestioning support or adherence.
    We talk of life being a series of compromises, I want this but I can have this, I don’t like this but I do like that, how close am I able to get to what I like.
    Compromise with the mate, the family and the garden but no absolutely no compromise with the other in politics. Derisive assertions and invectives are the baseline from where we start and where we end.
    Meanwhile the harvest goes bad and the ground isn’t turned for next years crop.
    Billions for campaign ads yet not one dollar for a substantive action for the future.

  30. Bob English said at 2:30 pm on August 9th, 2012:

    Proud: I have criticized a couple of the Obama campaign ads. The Romeny ads that were flat out lies that you have criticized or “condemned” would be a grand total of zero!!!

    Show a few guts and criticize or “condemn”the one that even Romney admited was a distortion (the first ad of the campaign where the Presidents words were totally taken out of context…where I come from, that is a lie.) Can you criticize or condemn the Romney ad that stated the President was trying to cut military voting in Ohio???Even Romneys spokesperson could not back that one up with facts.

    There have been ads on both sides or from PACS that are misleading to say the least. You would have a lot more credibility if you did not ignore the ones coming directly from the Romney campaign.

  31. Oh Bobbie, We're Talking About said at 3:16 pm on August 9th, 2012:

    A Campaign Calling A Presidential Candidate A Murder And A Felon. Apparently You Do Not See That Difference. That’s As Thuggish As Obummer.

    Shame On You.

  32. Hey Bobbie, Here's Another Despicable said at 3:38 pm on August 9th, 2012:

    Thuggish Democrat Attack Ad…


    ANOTHER Over The Top Ad From The Dumbo Machine

  33. Gee, "Thanks" Mr. Obummer said at 3:46 pm on August 9th, 2012:


    And “thanks” NOT to those that put him in office and stick their heads in the sand.

  34. Finally The Liar In Chief Comes Clean said at 5:23 pm on August 9th, 2012:


    Hey Bobbie, BIOYA

  35. Why We Despise Libs - Why We Fight said at 7:16 pm on August 9th, 2012:


    BTW, Jeff Daniels, how’s that “war on poverty” turning out some $6 TRILLION later?

    More on food stamps, more without jobs, Black unemployment rate at astounding levels. Hollywood libtards, a bunch of horse manure

  36. What a shame said at 11:28 pm on August 9th, 2012:

    Welcome to crazytown (otherwise known as Monmouth GOP). What was once the envy of the GOP across the state has now become crazytown! What a shame….

  37. Even Ed Koch Decry's The Lies said at 8:23 am on August 10th, 2012:

    From The Romney Murdered My Wife Ad & Reid Telling People Romney Paid No Taxes, Yet Bobbie & Ricky Aren’t Grown Up Enough To Do The Same.

    IMHO, That Makes Bobbie & Ricky As Bad As The Thug In Chief.

  38. Jamaica Moan said at 9:56 am on August 10th, 2012:

    If only we had a big tent republican running against Pallone. A pro-choice Republican who was not so big on tax cuts and all that tea stuff. We need someone like Christie Whitman or Tom Kean sr.
    So when are we going to see the MMM Pallone endorsement?
