D'Amato Versus Damato
No, Al is not getting divorced -- again -- but we thought it could be fun if, just days before the November 6th elections, the former United States Senator (and Town of Hempstead Supervisor cum husband of Hempstead Town Zoning Board member, Katuria D'Amato) would jump back into the limelight to take up the issues of the day -- or night (you choose).
And so, as only The Community Alliance could do, we have arranged for a debate between Alphonse D'Amato and none other than Junior Damato.
The latter a columnist for Newsday and an expert on machines. The former, appearing regularly in Newsday and, er, well, an expert on machines.
Watch the Great Debate, never on cable but only online [the webcast will be restricted to viewers who are registered vegetarians -- sorry], at http://rageagainstthemachine.com/.
We'll await the post-debate "spin" before we comment on who emerged victorious. Though we will say this: If in doubt for whom to pull that lever on Tuesday, November 6th, cast your write-in vote for Damato -- Junior, not Alphonse.
