“This Will Mean I’m a Real Candidate!”

It’s now official.  Michael Cino, Model Republican, has a website

And, he gives us ten reasons why he’s better than Scott Garrett – though he somehow confuses a list with math and comes up with the statement that he is “10 TIMES MORE QUALIFIED TO SERVE THE PEOPLE OF NORTHERN NEW JERSEY IN CONGRESS COMPARED TO HIS OPPONENT”.

Hint #1 – caps are the internet’s version of screaming.  Don’t be a screamin’ flamin’ ass.

Hint #2 – lay off the math

Megalomania will Embarrass You – But You will Enjoy It

Michael Cino is no stranger to us here at Blue Jersey.  He has, shall we say, entertained us to no end.  I’ll be sad to see the primary come and go because “The Gas Man” as he likes to be called will then be running on empty.

Now, the formal name for Megalomania is “Narcissistic Personality Disorder”.  It is characterized as a “dramatic, emotional or erratic disorder”.  Here is the official list of symptoms:

*is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love
*believes that he or she is “special” and unique and can only be understood by other special people
*requires excessive admiration
*strong sense of entitlement
*takes advantage of others to achieve his or her own ends
*lacks empathy
*is often envious or believes others are envious of him or her
*arrogant affect

Now, I’ve never met Mr. Cino, and I’m not qualified to diagnose him even if I do meet him.  Still, take a look at his latest press release desperate grab for attention and decide for yourself.

Mike Cino and the Case of the Disappearing Candidate

Jinkies!  A real mystery!

Here’s the latest is a sad, sad story about a sad, sad man making a sad, sad ass of himself:

Michael J. Cino for Congress

Demarest , NJ  07627
(201) 768-4468

Dear Sirs:

Please accept this letter as confirmation that I am challenging the Nominating Petitions for Member of the House of Representatives in the 5th Congressional District of a “Scott Garrett” on the basis that the person named on the Petitions is NOT registered to vote at the address stated in the petitions and apparently DOES NOT EXIST as per Court cases and case law which is presently on the books in the State of New Jersey today.

Thank you very much.

More Threats from the Cino Campaign (w/poll!) – feel free to add your own tags

Remember when Michael Cino (NJ-5 Republican primary opponent of Scott Garrett) threatened us with a lawsuit for repeating things that were in the press? If you don’t you can read all about it here. And here. And here. And here.

Short story: Cino tried to blackmail Corzine a few years back: ”We have so much dirt on him we can’t decide which to throw out first.” He got upset that we repeated that fact, and threatened to sue. Repeatedly.

That was almost two months ago and I thought they had gotten over it. I was wrong. Earlier today I received more threats of a lawsuit from Cino’s campaign manager in an instant message exchange we had:

miata7: I’m going to request one more time that you pull all those lies off your website  our case is strong  and you think you may be in a strong position but you are not.

me: I’m going to request that the next time you want to contact me, you do so through an attorney. Please do not email or instant message me any more.

miata7: give me your attorneys name
miata7: I will call him and send him a letter

me: you can send it to me. I’ll forward it if I need to.

miata7: Listen man  do yourself a favor  give me your attorney’s name let me talk to him and forward to him the Court cases

me: Don’t assume it’s a man, and I’ll forward it along if I think it’s worth the time. I’m pretty familiar with the case law.

miata7: ok  let me get some info for you
miata7: give me your name and address so I can send it to my attorney

me: (gave name and address)

miata7: send me email  Im going to find this stuff  we have to sue you man  Im sorry  I wish you would just make it simple

me: The next time you contact me by email or IM about this topic, I will block your screen name and add your email to my junk mail filter. If you want to talk about other things, that’s fine. This is the last time I’m going to say this.

miata7: DREAM ON
miata7: Only one “m” in defamatory  we will have the lawyers correct that.

(He has been blocked and added to my spam filter, so unfortunately I probably won’t be able to report on any more of these fun exchanges unless I actually get a letter from an attorney. Stay tuned…)

Poll Hint: It’s not Ann Coulter

Update: Wow. You guys are creative with those tags.
