Howie Carr, the Boston Herald columnist and conservative talk radio host, gave his take Sunday on the two former Arlington politicians who have recently been in the news for the wrong reasons.
In his Sunday column, “Partying like the moonbats,” Carr wrote about former state Sen. James Marzilli, who is facing new accusations in Watertown but no new charges, and former Selectwoman Annie LaCourt, who, along with her husband, is being charged in connection with an Oct. 19 underage drinking party at their Chatham Street home.
For the moonbats of Arlington, these are the best of times, these are the worst of times, to coin a phrase.
On the positive side for the pony-tailed, trust-funded, Birkenstock-clad geriatric hippies of Menotomy, there was Dear Leader’s 50 percent landslide last week.
On the downside, two of Arlington’s leading loony limousine liberals – moonbats’ moonbats, you might say – have found themselves ensnared in the criminal justice system.

Needless to say, these two tragic events have caused quite a stir in town. The blow-in drifter moonbats, who would love to live in Cambridge but don’t have large enough trust funds, are shocked, shocked.
The “townies,” on the other hand, the locals who actually have real jobs and work for a living, are more than somewhat amused.

Marzilli back in court?
Marzilli could be back in court on Tuesday, Dec. 4, for a judge to determine whether he violated his probation, according to a Boston Herald report. His defense attorney, however, is fighting the hearing, the article states.
Roughly three weeks ago, on Friday, Oct. 26, Marzilli allegedly stood in the doorway of his Watertown home, wearing only a dress shirt, and watched a female neighbor do yard work, according to a Fox 25 News report. After about 10 minutes, the woman called police when Marzilli touched his bare thigh, Fox reported.
Marzilli told police that he was wearing shorts at the time of the incident, but the neighbor disputed this claim, according to the report.
Marzilli, who was also a member of the state House of Representatives and Arlington government in his career, pleaded guilty last year to lewdly harassing four women on the streets of Lowell in 2008.
