I really had to laugh at Bergen Republican chair Bob Yudin the other day when he called BWC a “political communist.” For one thing, what the hell is that? I get it – he was unnerved by the Bridgegate anniversary, which taking place in his county is a scandal embarrassing his party, and the Democrats’ big guns standing at the GWB, talking GOP scandals. DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, NJDSC chair John Currie and BWC on that bridge is unsettling for somebody in Yudin’s position. Though, in my opinion it was a pretty routine moment of political opportunism the Dems had every right to engage in, which probably didn’t move anybody’s opinion.
Yudin also said “nobody pays attention to what she says.”. Oh, really. In just weeks, Watson Coleman will be a congresswoman-elect. And the reliably Democratic district she’ll rep will bouy her bedrock progressive instincts and willingness to stick her neck out.
She’s already shown integrity standing behind Barbara Buono last year as campaign chair, when lesser Democrats undermined and backstabbed the candidate, smiling for the camera and jockeying for their own positions. (Your pal Christie doesn’t look so shiny now, does he, boys)?
Now this: MSNBC profiles BWC as one of the most dynamic women candidates running this year. Don’t tell Yudin, but people are listening.
