heh … heh … heh… – – promoted by Rosi
The following is a deep thought from the Department of Strange And Unlikely But Hey, This Is Jersey We’re Talking About.
Those who live in and around the 12th Congressional District might’ve noticed the lawn signs that went up last week. Not so much in lawns as in the ground near intersections and traffic thoroughfares. The signs are either for multimillionaire Republican hopeful Scott Sipprelle or his “Tea Party Approved” primary opponent, David Corsi.
Sipprelle has the money, has the creepy wide-eyed ads, and the total support of the GOP establishment since Mike Halfacre bowed out. Corsi, on the other hand, has an eagle-loaded website that looks like a Firecracker ice-pop.
In all, Sipprelle should be the shoo-in. The only hitch he might face? Corsi’s name.
While I immediately knew who Sipprelle was, seeing the lawn signs for Corsi also rung a name-recognition bell. Then it struck me: Jerome Corsi, that crazy red-faced racist dude who wrote books saying Obama was born in Kenya and Kerry was really a coward. The Republican base loves that psycho-crank — both of those books were New York Times bestsellers. What if enough Republican primary voters think Corsi is in some way linked to Corsi? Will it make the primary result crazy?
