I can't imagine this little nugget hasn't been posted before, but it's short, sweet, and needs no comment:
That's John Catsimatidis, Hillary Clinton fund-raiser and possible Republican mayoral candidate, getting chummy with Queens County Republican chairman Phil Ragusa and state GOP chair Joe Mondello.
Catsimatidis, a registered Democrat, was there to receive the Abraham Lincoln Award, while Mondello received the Teddy Roosevelt Award.
During his acceptance speech, Catsimatidis said that he had spoke with local Republican leaders and "told them I will help them do whatever is possible to help build the party."
