Reader says Booker is running purely on celebrity because he has little else positive to show for his time in office.

Instead of seizing the bully pulpit (pun intended) and appoint a member of his own party as a replacement senator for the unexpired Lautenberg term (as any noble Democrat would have done), Christie swallows the poison pill and calls for the special election. He knew Booker would take the bait and Christie would be insulated from a moderate Democrat with a high name recognition value. Booker is running purely on celebrity because he has little else positive to show for his time in office. There is a reason NJ is the punchline for so many jokes (and setting for HBO series shows on corruption) – it’s the politics.

  1. Really? What has the guy done? I think there was a story some years ago how he ran into a burning building to help save lives. What a fantastically serendipitous PR opportunity. It’s almost absurd to acknowledge that Newark was statistically better off under Sharpe James.

  2. Newark, aside from Camden, maybe the last place in N.J. to live, with Paterson catching up. It did not just get that way and he was in charge.

  3. The ONLY reason why this ass-clown continues to succeed is because of a lack of honest and unbiased media.

  4. #2 don’t forget Irvington and Trenton, both are the butt holes of NJ

  5. And lack of political talent. Nothing but an opportunist.

  6. The above comments may or may not be true but what is the alternative?

    1. Jeff Bell get with the program already

    There really isn’t one. He’s backed by the mainstream media, has celebrity backing, and in the low-voter turnout for anything less than a Presidential election, his apparatus will make sure he gets what he needs.

  8. He’s got the pigment and speaks eloquently.
    Whoops, we good fooled by a good ‘orator’ before.

  9. #9 – you are clearly a bigoted lowlife. Got a broad brush, paint everyone with it.

  10. Get up to speed, #1. The burning building business was manufactured. Its just that the lie is so audacious that nobody can imagine someone saying it and getting away with it, so they conclude it must be true and are as unlikely to be budged from that position so as to entertain a position that is the opposite of what they think they know.
