TBL saw Democratic Undergound's Number 1 Conservative Idiot in person this morning (there were no crowds of Dean supporters around him!)

Click here and see how New Jersey Republicans find supporters: The Top Ten Conservative Idiots, No. 200 - Democratic Underground.

In the past week I've seen 3 of the 7 candidates for the New Jersey Republican gubernatorial nomination in the flesh, Murphy & Forrester marching in a Memorial Day parade and Murphy & Schundler standing in the Hoboken train station. Their primary is today and my only regret is that only six of them can be losers. Brett Schundler may not be number one after the polls close tonight (the designated Republican sacrifice to Jon Corzine in November will probably be Doug Forrester), but I'm glad to see that Schundler was able to win the DU Number One Conservative Idiot title before his inevitable quick fade back into obscurity.

So what kind of crowd was around him at 7:45 this morning without help from Photoshop? It wasn't a crowd of enthusiatic Dean supporters. There were a few uniformed police and a couple of security types hovering (and probably a few more undercover), a young campaign worker trying to hand out literature and telling commuters, "Bret is right over there if you want to meet him!" and the man himself was standing alone as if surrounded by a force field that extended for 15 feet. I almost felt sorry for him. Almost.

Bush smarter than Kerry. Beat him at the polls and in grades. Sucks to be Kerry. He's 0-2. Got ketchup.

It's almost too bad that Bret Schundler won't be the Republican candidate for Governor; it would be fun to run ads and stories about how he stole supporters from Howard Dean via Photoshop. He came in second last night and Forrester will be the man with the honor of coming in second to Corzine in November.

(Alan S, I'm not sure what post you're responding to, but it's not this one.)

With nothing else to say in June of 2005, Alan S, a Republican bot apparently, is repeating talking poiints from the 2004 presidential election. Hee.

The Republican voters stayed away from the primary in drives this year. Seven gubernatorial candidates to choose from and they were only marginally interested. That looks good for Democrats in the fall. If the Republicans can stay apathetic, then Corzine's coattails can pull in other, local candidates. I think Corzine can have coattails if Dems turn out, too. Dem turn out will be key. I see Corzine winning this one handily anyway, but winning the smaller elections is all about turnout, because the Republicans will probably not bother voting in this one because Corzine is such a strong candidate.
