I found a tape!

GOOD NIGHT AND GOOD LUCK

I CANT BELIEVE THE AP!!!

Clearly an example of the liberal media

Terry P,C
Can't you let Jon Corzine bask in the glow of a win before the scandals begin. Give the guy a break.

 
At 9:44 PM, Blogger Media In Trouble said...

Yeah, I mean you ought to see the orgies going on over at the Corzine camp.

It is rediculous... The pay to play. I think they were doing stem cell research at one of the cold cut tables.

 
At 9:45 PM, Blogger Enlighten said...

Media,

It is what is is. The voters have spoken - Corzine will be the next Governor and we wish him the best.

 
At 9:45 PM, Blogger Dave said...

Way to lose, loser.

If only they found the video tape in time!

 
At 9:50 PM, Blogger Enlighten said...

Dave,

That's quite a comment for a reporter. Somehow it doesn't surprise us.

 
At 9:55 PM, Blogger Media In Trouble said...

The liberal media really did Doug in by calling the race so damned early.

Enlighten. Maybe now they will dump that tape out on your lap..

 
At 10:01 PM, Blogger Dave said...

Enlighten - That's quite a comeback for an anonymous, discredited smear-peddler.

 
At 10:16 PM, Blogger Media In Trouble said...

Heh indeedy Dave!

 
At 10:28 PM, Blogger TomP said...

We don't wish him the best - we wish him a quick exit (a la McGreevy) and hold onto our hopes for a few more years of benign rule by Codey before we get another chance at the governorship.

 
At 10:30 PM, Blogger Media In Trouble said...

Well one thing is for sure, if he goes out, he can't go out McGreevey style, what with all them ladies chasin him.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

 
At 10:33 PM, Blogger terryp said...

Wait, I lost the tape. SHIT!

 
At 10:35 PM, Blogger Media In Trouble said...

I know where it is...

 
At 8:13 AM, Blogger WjcW said...

I hope you guys were right, I really do. We'll see if Adler gets the AG postion and then we'll know if Corzine is in Norcross's pocket. I sincerely hope we aren't here posting 'I told you so''s.

 
At 8:15 AM, Blogger Eric Blair said...

Watch for Senator Codey.

 
At 8:41 AM, Blogger Ken said...

Actually, I have an announcement. I have seen 'the tape' and I would like to confirm enlighten's rumors... that aliens are amoung us... RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!!!!

 
At 10:16 AM, Blogger Counter Trey said...

Enlighten,
Thanks for all of your hard work. It probably narrowed Corzine's margin of victory this time. Next time it might kick him out of office.

 
At 11:03 AM, Blogger Glass House said...

Dave, et. al. - Nothing like a magnanious winner.

I can't even imagine how really nasty you'd be if your candidate had lost.

 
At 11:18 AM, Blogger Dave said...

Glass House - I probably would've refused to apologize for the bogus rumors I spread about the winner, then spent a day bitching and crying into my pillow.

Wait ... that's what you guys are doing, isn't it? Carry on.

LOL...that sounds more like last year's election to me!

 
At 1:44 PM, Blogger DBK said...

Dave, you hit it right on the money. But this has been the way of this blog since the very beginning: bitterness, nastiness, personal attacks, smears, and distortions. It was what it was created to do. It is a bitter little pill of a web log and it's notion of humor is to bludgeon something. I say, "Good luck with all that."

Winner's laugh and loser's cry, "Deal!"

 
At 3:53 PM, Blogger nightfly said...

Actually, losers correct the winners' grammar (you're using apostrophes for plurals). ;) And considering some of what I've read over at your blog, I think you're criticizing the mirror again, but eh. It's a large Internet with room for all kinds.

But seriously, Forrester campaigned poorly, didn't he? The ex-wife thing hurt him, and he was absolutely killed by those radio spots using his quote about Monmouth County being governed well.

I hope that Corzine, having been elected, has exhausted his ambition for the next four years and decides to simply enjoy the office without using it for much. New Jersey might be better off that way.
