It’s raining today in a lot of places on the East Coast, which I noticed earlier when I went outside to walk to my polling place to vote and got wet. Most other people noticed it, too, as they were carrying umbrellas (I wasn’t) and generally trying to avoid being in the rain, but boy, Cory Booker. Now there’s a guy who doesn’t mind a bit of weather.

Booker, the New Jersey senator whose...

Democrats have a very good shot at winning the House and are competitive in Senate races in Texas and Tennessee, and yet, HuffPost reports, they’re playing defense in New Jersey—one of the bluest states in the country—because they stuck with the hilariously corrupt guy.

Of all the things you can say about former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie—that he’s a corrupt embarrassment; that he debased himself as Donald Trump’s errand monkey; that he’s the worst thing to happen to the Jersey Shore since The Situation got busted for tax fraud—you’ve gotta give him credit for being utterly shameless when it comes to screwing over his former constituents.

There is perhaps no more entertaining feud in politics—for me, anyway—than that between former New Jersey governor and Donald Trump bootlicker Chris Christie and Trump’s ventriloquist dummy son-in-law Jared Kushner.

Here we have two very bad men (well, one man, and one man-child) whose well-documented antipathy toward one another can best be equated to the antipathy a person would feel upon...

Good riddance to New Jersey Rep

Good riddance to New Jersey Rep. Tom MacArthur, the author of the amendment that would have effectively destroyed Obamacare’s ban on preexisting conditions. MacArthur became the latest Republican to lose his House seat today, losing to Democrat Andy Kim. Sucks to suck.

In riffing on them, Stewart offered up a most apt review...
