It’s been a big week, and the fallout from New Jersey’s congressional redistricting, which Democrats lost when tie-breaker John Farmer picked the GOP map, is still, well, falling out.
Rothman picks Turf War with Pascrell over Holy War with Garrett. Unhappy Democrats swiping at each other. Reports of DCCC gazillions offered to Rothman for one really, really expensive sword to fall on. Heldrich Hotel, Homebase Hotspot. Mike DuHaime runs Team Dark Side. Jun Choi out, Ed Potosnak in for 7th District race with Leonard Lance. And Runyan constituents feeling like chopped liver, waiting for the political press to turn its attention to them. This is Haiku: Congressional Redistricting Edition.
You know the rules. 5 syllables, 7, 5 again. Write your haiku on the suggestion of the poet before you; leave a suggestion for the next bloke. I’ll start:
Take the 5th
Tea Party fan mail
Piled on the desk, spilling over
Scott Garrett, breathes deep
