The folks at NJN News are taking an exceedingly, exit-poll-informed pro-Christie view, so in the spirit of the evening let’s just call — oops, we’re informed by our boss (Gene Evans in Park Row) that they’re calling Jersey for Chris Christie. That’s odd, NewsMax just told us that ACORN was “gearing up to tip the scales and re-elect the beleaguered incumbent in the hard-fought New Jersey gubernatorial race.” Maybe it was a little late to start gearing up. Looks like the voters’ hatred of Corzine finally animated their voting arms. Chris Christie, congratulations, ya big tub-o-guts!
Corzine is expected to retire to an island fortress and plot conquest of a less bankrupt principality.
