Grinning douchebags in fresh suits smirk mightily about the chess game they're planning in office and vow to crush "uppity jigaboo."  Next slide, please.

Lonegan who's trailing by over 10 points in a usually blue state with a week till the election while Republican numbers plummet?  Yeah, let's pay attention to what that guy has to say....

Even Jon Runyan doesn't believe in the shutdown.

Lonegan is sacked for a 15 yard loss.

TuteTibiImperes: trailing by over 10 points


in all but the most unskewed of polls.  I saw one Fox News poll that had him at like 3 or 5 points behind, but he's on average back 13 points.

That right there.

Lonegan seems to be doing more trolling than campaigning.  I mean, shifting the power balance in the Senate would affect the President's tactical position but it won't allow Obama to "omminy-domini" the shutdown to a close.

Impressive for Lonegan because he is blind and hasn't actually seen the trademark grin in person.

Lo, these many centuries ago, a decision was need as to whether Staten Island should go to NJ or NY. The outcome would be decided by having a sailboat circumnavigate the island. If it took less than 24 hours, NY would be the winner.

/CSB

So glad the sailboat had fair winds and following seas.

If Cory Booker loses to Steve Lonegan, I will go Andrew WK on my face and refuse medical treatment for it.

Once Lonegan is elected, President Romney will end the Obama shutdown.

His "internal" polling says it's neck and neck.  You know who else believed their internal polling?

FTA:He cited internal polling that shows the race between Lonegan and Democratic Newark Mayor Cory Booker to be neck and neck, but the campaign did not respond to requests to see their numbers. Most public polls put Booker ahead by 11 to 13 points.

"internal numbers" means he asked his staffers who they would vote for.  50% of them still said Booker.

So wait, according to this Obama can just reopen the Government when he "folds"?

FTFY.

Booker's going to win, but he hasn't run the best campaign and Lonegan has kept a much higher profile.  It probably comes out at like 55-45 in a race that by all rights should be 65-35.  Lonegan is well to the right of NJ's Republican congressional delegation, except for that farktard Scott Garrett.

And, over in Freeperville (c'mon you know you love this):

"love the guys confidence.. It is great. "

"I've seen past elections where a GOP surge in the polls turned very flat on Election Day so I put nothing past those Dems. But if Lonegan is the nominee, what becomes of the RINO that Christie was putting up last summer?"

"I voted for him in the GOV primary, knowing that Crispy Kreme was a RINO... I may have to drive 6 hours on Wednesday to get to my polling location and get in my vote... don't live there, but it's where I am register to vote."

"What are the means for the d's to steal the election? That is the only question that matters in elections, these days."

"Ballot-box stuffing. Assassination. Getting Al Sharpton to spike up turnout to 147% of registered voters (half of whom live in Bedford-Stuyvesant).
Getting the NBPP to Mau-Mau the honkey vote.
Want more?"

"I like his confidence too. When he wins, maybe he can spread it to the rest of the GOP."

"In many historic battles, the guys who flinched first lost. And the Democrats actually have more to lose, don't they?
If the GOP can stand firm and get the Demogogue Party to stand down, the victory will change the political landscape."

" His staff should watch for voter fraud. Let's not forget - we are talking about a deep blue state here. "

"Nathan Bedford's first law of American politics: all politics in America is not local but ultimately racial."

"Sadly, Boehner may be afraid that Lonegan could win in a very low turnout and that would put pressure on Boehner not to cave. Caving is part of Boehner's nature. Of course if Lonegan wins, he loses big in 2014, when more liberals turn out."

If I repeat it enough, it becomes true.

My wife and I were both undecided, but leaning towards Booker.  Hadn't looked into Lonegan yet.  Did a quick search on his views:  Get rid of Obamacare, get rid of the IRS, ban abortions....decision became easy.

There are still undecideds?  At this point, all you have to do is think "Do I hate others who are different than me?"  If yes, vote GOP (but only if you are like them) and if no, vote Democratic.

Holy. Crap.

Because New Jersey LOVES them some Yosemite Sam (and Jersey doesn't have potentially-explosive chemical plants that need some deregulation). You know what else they love? Smug, midwestern-born pricks who've never seen a city as big as New Brunswick (let alone Newark), who lump Jersey in with NY and carves them out of "Real America". Oh, and both of them dislike Christie, who remains popular with the NJ GOP.

That shiat might play in Southern and waaaaaaaaaaay Northern Jersey, but the people in the middle (politically, and anyone who lives anywhere near the Turnpike or Parkway) are not going to be moved. There are plenty of Obama/Christie voters in the Garden State.

Even for you, that's lazy. Though you're not whining about Booker, so I guess it's an improvement.
