O'Neill Not Ga-Ga over Gaga

An early note of the New Year;

Lady Gaga’s personal assistant is suing her boss $380,000 for unpaid overtime. According to her suit, Ms. O’Neill is also seeking unspecified damages.

The authoritative New York Post reports that Ms. Gaga – real name, Stefani Germanotta, was rather demanding. She required service on all occasions, at her upper West side duplex and in “stadiums, private jets, fine hotel suites, yachts, ferries, trains and tour buses.”

Ms. O’Neill was given no time for meals, breaks “or, at times, even sleep.” She was called upon by her boss at her “earliest waking hour” or for “spontaneous, random matters in the middle of the night,” according to court papers.

The Post reported:


“Part of O’Neill’s $75,000-a-year job was ‘ensuring the availability of chosen outfits’ — no small task considering her boss is best known for wearing a meat dress to the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards and dressing like a ‘human condom’ for a February appearance on ‘Good Morning America.’”

The Blumenthal Burisma Connection

Steve Hilton, a Fox News commentator who over the weekend had connected some Burisma corruption dots, had this to say about Connecticut U.S. Senator Dick Blumenthal’s association with the tangled knot of corruption in Ukraine: “We cross-referenced the Senate co-sponsors of Ed Markey's Ukraine gas bill with the list of Democrats whom Burisma lobbyist, David Leiter, routinely gave money to and found another one -- one of the most sanctimonious of them all, actually -- Sen. Richard Blumenthal."

Dave Walker, Turning Around The Misery Index

Dave Walker, who is running for Lieutenant Governor on the Republican Party ticket, is recognized by most credible political observers as perhaps the most over qualified candidate for Lieutenant Governor in state history.
He is a member of the Accounting Hall of Fame and for ten years was the Comptroller General of the United States. When Mr. Walker talks about budgets, financing and pension viability, people listen.
Mr. Walker is also attuned to fine nuances in political campaigning. He is not running for governor, he says, because he had moved to Connecticut only four years ago and wishes to respect the political pecking order. Very few people in the state think that, were he governor, Mr. Walker would know less about the finance side of government than his budget chief.

Murphy Stumbles

U.S. Senator Chris Murphy has been roughly cuffed by some news outlets, but not by Vox, which published on April 16 a worshipful article on Connecticut’s Junior Senator, “The Senator of State: How Connecticut’s Chris Murphy, a rising Democratic star, would run the world.”
On April 15, The Federalist mentioned Murphy in an article entitled “Sen. Chris Murphy: China And The World Health Organization Did Nothing Wrong. The lede was a blow to Murphy’s solar plexus: “Democratic Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy exonerated China of any wrongdoing over the global pandemic stemming from the novel Wuhan coronavirus on Tuesday.
“’The reason that we’re in the crisis that we are today is not because of anything that China did, is not because of anything the WHO [World Health Organization] did,’ said Murphy during a prime-time interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper.”
