Just when I thought I could not be any more pessimistic about Jon Corzine serving as our governor, I see that Governor-Elect Corzine is consulting with Senator Charles Schumer (the New York Lens Louse) and Harry â€œCadaveryâ€ Reid about who Jon Corzine should appoint to fill his vacant Senate seat. Let me repeat that. Jon Corzine is consulting with a Senator from New York and a Senator from Nevada about the choice of a person to represent the citizens of New Jersey. How does that grab ya?
It turns out that Chuck Schumer has already â€œinterviewedâ€ all the candidates â€“ â€œat least the ones whose names are out there.â€ Those names would include Democrat Congressmen Robert Andrews, Rush Holt, Robert Menendez, and Frank Pallone, as well as Governor Richard Codey.
Chuck Schumer said that he talked to Acting Governor Codey when he â€œbumped into himâ€ at the October 30, 2005 New York Giants home game against the Washington Redskins. It is interesting to note that Senator Schumer and Acting Governor Codey were but two of the 80,242 spectators at Giantâ€™s Stadium that day and yet they just happened to â€œbump intoâ€ each other? I donâ€™t know about you, but that spiked the needle on my Bullshit Meter.
I agree with Roberto at DynamoBuzz when he states, â€œWho cares what Schumer thinks. Corzine’s (sic) should select his own replacement and the idea is that the pick is supposed to represent the people of New Jersey, not the partisan views of a left wing sleaze ball hack like Schumer.â€
Itâ€™s bad already, and I fear that things will only get worse.
