Election Day Odds and Ends

We’ve long suspected a fair number of voters in New Jersey really don’t care about political corruption. This quote from the New York Times Empire Zone election blog explains the rationalization of these voters:

Karen O’Leary, 45, said that she had no concerns about Mr. Menendez’s ethics - which Mr. Kean made a central part of his campaign.

“You know what?” she said. “I don’t even care. He stands for stem cell research, he’s for a woman’s right to choose. I don’t care if he takes money under the table. Those other things are more important.”
Ms. O’Leary also falls into another unfortunate voter category - the totally misinformed. Tom Kean is pro-choice and supports federal funding for stem cell research.

Then there are New Jersey voters who will vote for a Democrat no matter what:

I see the war in Iraq, the state of the environment, the state of our education system and progressive scientific research, and i think to myself “I want out!” The only way to change things is to turn one branch of our government blue, and if that means electing a serial killer so be it. — Posted by Munier Salem
There are allegations of voting machine rigging in at least 7 New Jersey polling places in Passaic, Union, Middlesex, Camden, and Hudson counties.

Upon entering the voting booth, individuals have encountered machines that are pre-set to vote for Menendez, causing serious confusion. In some instances, the voter has been unable to de-select the pre-set Menendez vote using the touch screen.
It’s tough being a Republican in New Jersey.

It's the air, it makes the people really stupid. No other explanation for the
rationale of "not caring about corruption"

- I have had it with this state, maybe I will stop paying property and income taxes
and put them in and escrow account until the state changes

O yeah. You try it! We'll come to your house with armed men and take your stuff. Resist? Sounds like a hostage situation. Pay and STFU or we'll kill your crazy right-wing ass. This is NJ not Georgia.

Yeah, the genocide of millions of unborn children a year is more important.

Repeal womyn's suffrage!

Worse than reading comments from people that say corruption is not as important in an elected official as an abortion stance, etc. is actually talking to them - no amount of rationale works. One can actually easily win a civil debate with them, but it won't change their view one bit. those people are scary....and in that way no different than the fanatics they like to rail against

Representing innuendo and misrepresentations as if they were truth, does not make them true.

Try being a conservative for 40 odd years. Well the kids are grown and we're checking out houses out of state each weekend, so it won't be long for us either.

I'm a gunny and Jersey has become a place nearly impossible to enjoy the sport.

It won't truly have success, I believe this way.
