The party switch of Suffolk Executive Steve Levy is creating its share of amusement along with the political fallout.

From Newsday's Rick Brand:
When Huntington Conservatives honored former Suffolk Legis. Michael O’Donohoe with a lifetime achievement award earlier this month, Edward Walsh, the Suffolk chair, praised the former lawmaker but also noted he had a reputation as a “bomb thrower.”
When O’Donohoe got up to accept the award, true to form, he did not let Walsh off easy for supporting Democrat Levy for governor.
“I know Ed Walsh is busy and has to leave early,” jibed O’Donohoe, now commissioner of jurors. “He has to go over to Steve Levy’s house and scrape the Obama bumper stickers off the county executive’s car.”
