So in response to my request for information I found this little gem in my inbox this morning. My informant received a copy of this from their Municipal Chairman who received it from Steve McEnery the Chairman in Manalapan.

This is not the forum that I would normally use for this type of info. However, this will be a very difficult election year for all of Monmouth County. As many of you may know, Manalapan will be having a more difficult year because we will be facing a primary. A few Republican malcontents and a number of rejected Democrat losers have joined together to try and split the Republican Party in Manalapan. We have become just another town to face turmoil.
I believe that the loyal Republicans from Manalapan can take a beating and survive. We can deal with our own dirty laundry.
However, none of us need outsiders helping to split Manalapan Republicans. I have heard that Jim Giannell has teamed up with the breakaway's and committed to help fund their campaign. I know Jim likes to play in the shadow (emphasis added) so nothing can be attached to him, accept the good things he likes to take credit for. I would like your help in telling Jim to pay attention to his own business and leave other Towns to work out their own issues. Start supporting the Party and stop prying things apart.
I'm not sure how to say it in Greek, perhaps some one can translate for Mr. Giannell, what goes around, comes around.
Steve McEnery
Chairman, Manalapan

Is he kidding? On the one hand this stuff makes you worry about the future of the party. On the other hand it makes great theater. You gotta love it.

Does this mean there is a plot a foot to replace the County Chair? The first step would be to take control of municipal committees. Who will be the candidate? This is interesting.

Only a few days left to get tips into the Monmouth Bull Moose. Don't miss your chance.

Steve McEnry is basically a nice person, and, no question , has some political talent.
Unfortunately, he has exhibited some very poor political judgment in the past couple years, affiliating himself with some of the most divisive people in the history of the Monmouth County Republican Party, people who will say or do just about anything in order to use the system for their own financial benefit, bringing our Party to its precarious position at the County level
If our Party is to re-invigorate itself, the smear tactics, insults, name calling, etc., affiliated with the Puharic team ( McEnry, Moretti, etc.) must be terminated and replaced with new leadership in several areas and at different levels. In short, rebuilding requires tolerance and civility; something currently lacking.
In Manalapan, Steve seems to have applied the Puharic mindset; agree with me or else!
Do as I order! Most normal Republicans will not tolerate this attitude, yet he wonders why there is a contested Primary in his community. Steve has had some good ideas in the past, I don’t know what happened to him but he should take a good look inwardly in order to determine the cause for the split in Manalapan and not try to blame others.
I have met with the leaders of Steves competition, Kalman “Butch” Budai and Steve Johnson. Two classy guys who have volunteered much of their time over the years to the Republican Party. I believe they and their team are looking to restore the values, tolerance, and civility that made the Republican Party in Manalapan so successful years ago and that contributed so much to our success at the County level
I was contributing $500.00 to their cause but after McEnrys e-mail letter I proudly gave them a check for $1,000.00. They have many good people working with them but they are running off the line and are, without question the underdogs. I know they would appreciate our help. If you can send a contribution, please send it to:
Committee to Elect Budai & Johnson
C/O Mr Kalman Budai
13 Notting Hill Court
Manalapan, N.J. 07726

Thank You for your time and consideration

Now, was a swipe at Mr. Giannell's heritage really necessary???

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
