I’m feeling inspired by both huntsu’s call to action and a bit of confusion, as evidenced by my title.
When I first became increasingly in tune with state politics, PoliticsNJ.com was always the first site I turned to; for some time, it was the only site I referenced for insights, updates, etc. about the happenings of New Jersey politics. Suffice it to say that that I was upset when Steve Kornacki departed for greener pastures at Roll Call. I always felt like I was a step ahead of the masses after reading his columns, and that I had my metaphorical finger on the pulse of all things political occurring between Ramsey and Pennsville.
Despite my concerns, I continued my readership of PoliticsNJ.com unabated as Bill Albers took the helm. While I mixed in BlueJersey in equal measure, I never failed to return to what was tried and true for me. At first, there wasn’t a significant difference between Albers and Kornacki, but at this point, readers are lucky to get one original column a week. Recently, the site has posted spinning press releases from both the Kean and Menendez campaigns right up on the front page where those columns used to be, and right now, you can find the text of some remarks Bob Menendez made at the 2000 convention in praise of Joe Lieberman. I almost wish to take over the job, even if it were pro bono – my interest and passion for state politics is that great.
I was hoping that perhaps someone could shed light on the recent inactivity of PoliticsNJ.com? While the weekly posts of David Rebovich and daily (but only occasionaly relevant) entries of Wally Edge are informative, they always leave me wanting for the glory days of the past. I welcome empathetic comments, as well as potential insights.
