OK Snitcherinos, did you hear the one about the Big Apple-based pro-gay marriage group that hired the co-author of the book, "Sarah Quaylin: Left-Wing Smear Attacks on Rogue Conservatives," as its lobbyist in Concord?

It did, and he is.

The new lobbyist for the New Hampshire branch of an outfit that calls itself Standing Up For New Hampshire Families is one Tyler Deaton, author of the "Sarah Quaylin" book. And he's the hired gun.

Why?

Turns out that the Standing Up outfit was supposed to be a deal of the New Hampshire Freedom to Marry group, which duly held a press confab to announce the new bit. But shortly thereafter the NYC-based national Freedom to Marry group and the Human Rights Coalition incorporated Standing Up as a standalone. Then they so nicely cut off all funding to the NH Freedom peeps and hired said Monsieur Deaton.

The part that irks Mo Baxley of NH Freedom to Marry most is not only that she's got the funding cutoff, but that Deaton, et al. are allowing GCers and the like to think that THEY'RE the NH Freedom to Marry group.

Bait and switch?

No, Snitcherinos, 76-0 isn't the score of an upcoming Pats-Fish game. It's the vote of the union peeps at the U***n Leader at W.L. Drive. They voted in unanimity against the contract proposal thrown in their faces by Joe the Publisher McQuaid, the quarter-million-dollar man.

Snitcherinos who pay attention recall that Joe the Publisher held a gun to the head of six employees and told the rest of the union peeps they had to accept his deal for more work at less pay or he'd pull the trigger.

They didn't. He did -- figuratively, Snitcherinos, figuratively. And the targeted half-dozen will be out of their jobs if Joe the Publisher keeps his word.

Something to keep in mind, Joe the P.: Not only did the secreted unanimous ballots include votes from some of the half-dozen, the union peeps were read a pre-vote statement from union board member Kathy Marchocki, calling on her fellows to turn down the Joe the Publisher deal.

Marchocki is one of the half-dozen.

*****

Hand it to Congressman Passbook, Snitcherinos. He met with a group of peeps who on paper he'd keep away from with a 10,000-foot pole. But he did meet with members of a group that calls itself National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare. They don't want no cuts in the programs.

No pix of the meetup, of course, to show that it actually DID occur. But a press release from the group post-meetup thanked him for his time.

Didn't say if he was actually listening, but we know Passbook is polite, if he's anything.

AG Mikey Delaney's peeps are all hot and bothered about the deal that the Nixon Peabody legal eagles worked out with the plaintiffs in the med malpractice JUA suit.

They're worked up that the N&P'ers will cash out with 25% of all the money collected by policyholders. Between $21 and $27 mill or so. Out of $110 mill. Lots of dough either way.

But were the AG's peeps all worked up about the deal cut by the mouthpieces hired by the states -- including NH -- in the suit over MTBE pollution? Those legalists stand to get 33% of the 1 billion (with a B) dollars being sought in damages.

*****

Poll numbers report, Snitcherinos: Perry, 4.1%. Gingrich 6.0% (a la Real Clear Politics average). Maybe Big Dave Carney ain't such a political genius after all.

Snitch's Words of Wisdom 

Even when you stop accepting reality it doesn't go away.

 

Mr. Snitch isn't too forthcoming about his own personal information, but if you've got a hot tip, he'll be glad to take it at mrsnitch@thelobbynh.com

Forget the polls. Money talks.

While none of the candidates raise big money in the New Hampshire - the idea is they spend it here - what they do get does indicate whether they can \205

There's nothing more pathetic than watching a guy lead a marching band down the street, only to turn around and see there's no one behind him. A la state GOP \205
