I am thankful for my new Congressman John Adler who will go to Washington and stick up for what I care about. I am especially grateful that I was a part of the team that got Adler elected. It's very satisfying to play -- and win -- on your own home turf.

What's got you counting your blessings?

The Comeback

I've been away since April doing some campaign consulting work (we won! I have a new Congressman, YAY!)  

It was a great experience I would never trade but it meant kinda subverting my opinions for a while.  It's a professional courtesy in the business, I reckon.  

So the election is over and I'm working myself back into the routine.  Which means tapping out a few paragraphs on the keyboard to get the feel back.  

I'm sure it won't be long before I rediscover how fun it is to have a soapbox.

George Bush, Chris Myers and Leonard Lance

George Bush is coming to NJ in a desperate attempt to raise money for Chris Myers and Leonard Lance, who are running for Congress. Myers and Lance are basically broke.

Life on a US SENATE campaign: Road Rules edition

Lefty blogger hooks up with unfettered access to US Senate candidate (and Congressman) Rob Andrews. Wackiness -- and wonkiness -ensue.

(I think this is one of the coolest things I have ever done blog-wise.)

Lautenberg: ON BUSH's TRAIN

When it could to Iraq, Senator Frank Lautenberg's either being forgetful or ...... dishonest. Thankfully, New Jersey voters who want to shake things up now have a choice: Rob Andrews for Senate.

Andrews vs. Lautenberg.

Another Dishonest Clinton Booster

Just another Hillary Clinton booster with an "any means nescessary" kind of attitude.

At least this story ends with a well hung hooker to rhe rescue.

Frank Lautenberg: out of touch, out of time

That's the choice New Jersey democrats have on June 5th when they choose their party's candidate for U.S. Senate.

I choose Rob Andrews over Frank Lautenberg for an ever-growing list of reasons.

The lastest: a petty snub that suggests he's brittle and his staff is spooked.

One word: Boo.

Rob Andrews or Frank Lautenberg?

The last time a New Jersey Senator was from South Jersey, Frank Lautenberg was, like, my age.  I am all about Rob Andrews in the June primary because "all politics is local." 

And for me, it doesn't get any more local than the Delaware River.

    Obama Rising

    Hillary Clinton may be the Queen of the Polls, but with the concerted efforts of the Activist Class of the Netroots and Grassroots Barack Obama will score a robust share of NJ delegates on February 5th.

    If Hillary think this is in the bag, then she should pass me some of whatever she's smoking.

    It's gonna be onle heck of a tsunami super Tuesday.
