I don't usually comment on New Jersey politics, but since it is my home state, I guess I should throw in my two cents.
Can't New Jersey come up with better than this?
Forrester just ran an ad quoting Jon Corzine's soon-to-be-ex wife. The ad is an intensely personal attack, taking advantage of Corzine's impending divorce to score political points. Corzine was cheating on his wife with a union boss. Whether this says anything about his political credentials is up to debate, but quoting his wife is a pretty low blow, one that will not exactly galvanize the electorate in Forrester's favor.
And Forrester has some 'splainin to do himself.
"Have you ever cheated on your wife?" [reporter] Thompson asked.Sound a little Clinton-esque to you?
"I'm very proud of my marriage," Forrester said. "Thirty years of marriage and I expect that I will be married for another 30 years, so I'm very proud of my conduct."
"But... have you ever?" Thompson asked.
"I have not, if, if what you're asking is if I have sex with somebody else -- no," Forrester replied.
Just once, I want a Jersey governor I can be proud of. Governor Bruce Springsteen? Governor Jon Bon Jovi? Governor Sly?
Ah. If only.
