Largest inaugural bash this side of the Hudson

Inauguration parties were held far and wide Tuesday after Barack Obama was sworn in as President of the United States, but organizers of one local bash believed they would have the largest celebration on this side of the river with roughly at least 120 individuals expected.

The party was held from 7-9 p.m. at the 95 Bar and Grill, located at 95 Ferry St., and was put on by the Rensselaer County Young Democrats, Moveon.org, and the Presidential Inauguration Committee.

"We have kind of aligned ourselves with throwing a bash to celebrate the inauguration of President Barack Obama," said Rodney Wiltshire, president of the Rensselaer County Young Democrats, who noted that the organization's members had done a lot in the past two years to get Democrats elected on both local and nation levels.

"This is really the culmination of our hard work for the past two years and we just want to celebrate and really give people a venue in Rensselaer County where they can go and have a good time."

Good stuff, on the local scene Clem Campana has been seen with his newest advisor. Rabbit Riley has been seen spending agreat deal of time with the council president. Given this relationship the Troy taxpayers can only expect good things again this year from the council democrats. Rabbit is well known in Troy circles for his bizarre behavior. We can only assume clem will be putting forth more of his bizarre actions again this year. Happy new year!

It looks as though Troy's Republicans are feeling especially mean-spiritied these days. When local Republican "heroes" like Bruno, Sweeney and Powers are being brought down, it must be difficult to remain chipper. When they are insulting people, however, is it too much to ask that they identify themselves. Do they want to be known as both sore losers and cowards?

That's obviously not Kevin Reilly from Stow hill because he's afraid of his own shadow, just ask Gene Eaton. Kevin went through an entire box of kleenex when he was fired from the city council office. Oh was Kevin a member of the GOP then?
