Blue Jersey Friday political haiku

Still unfolding fallout from those political corruption arrests just 15 days ago. A shiny new Supreme Court Justice. A feisty Democratic LG candidate shaping up as Corzine’s pit bull. Christie grandstanding on ethics. Christie’s trackers popping up with signs … everywhere.

Oh, there’s plenty to work with, in this week’s Friday installment of daily politics in verse.  Rules are simple: You compose a haiku (5 syllables, then 7, then 5) on the topic the last poster suggests. Then you get to set the next topic.

First topic: Sotomayor only the 3rd woman appointed to Supreme Court

The Supremes need more

I am woman, hear me roar

Frank and Bob said yes

Next topic: Feisty Loretta Weinberg
