NJ Politiko posts some thoughts about the Forrester candidacy for the Republican nomination. The essential argument in the post:
The conservative junkies constantly point out that Jon Corzine is too rich, and uses his money to achieve his political goals. There's no denying that he's loaded. My response to that is, so what?It's fairly obvious from the overall tone of Politiko's blog (in favor of raising the minimum wage, for example) that the author is not a member of the VRWC, but rational thought from the other side should always be considered. The vast majority of the posts in the NJ Governor category are anti-Forrester hit jobs, but pretty well written.
Guess what? Doug Forrester is loaded too. They're both millionares. Here's a hint for those who haven't noticed a trend in politics today: Politicans tend to be rich.
This is a blog that bears watching. It goes in the Blogroll. (update: or it will, when blogrolling.com decides it wants to talk to me).
