In Joisey, Money Grows on Trees

These guys must be nuts. In the New Jersey gubernatorial race, Republican businessman Doug Forrester and Democratic U.S. Senator Jon Corzine have already spent over $46 million between them to get elected. Can you imagine how much good these guys could do for their perspective constituents by simply agreeing to spend no more money on the campaign, and instead diverting it to programs and benefits for those constituents? And now, with the race considered a dead heat, the two will likely be spending tens of millions more in the final month. I can tell you one thing for sure, the spending of these huge sums simply to secure power is something that I find personally offensive. I cannot wait until this race is over in a few weeks, and I no longer have to look at their tired faces and hear their vitriolic TV and radio ads. In Joisey, apparently, money is growing on trees!
