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.
