Check out Kellyanne Conway’s post Badlands
on National Review’s Reconcilable Differences blog. She gives her take on New Jersey’s recent governors, starting with Jon Corzine. Just a taste below.
Jon Corzine was inaugurated as New Jersey’s 54th governor yesterday, a fact that should make everyone in the Garden State grab their wallets and expect four more years of life as an extra in the movie Groundhog Day.
The only good thing about this is that he is no longer in the United States Senate. Corzine, an independently wealthy former head of Goldman Sachs who has been a reliable liberal vote in Washington for five years, pledged yesterday to reduce property taxes, clean up corruption and restore public trust in state government.
I was impressed that Corzine could say all of this with a straight face and while the Bible upon which he swore his oath was still nearby.
