Talking Points Memo nails it…again.
I wish I could be as subtle as Josh Marshall.
The money quote from the New Jersey Supreme Court ballot case came from Justice Peter G. Verniero, a former Chief Counsel, Chief of Staff and later Supreme Court appointee of former Governor Christie Whitman. “Didn’t Mr. Forrester call for Mr. Torricelli to withdraw?” he said in response to a protesting Republican attorney during oral arguments. “Was he expecting to run unopposed?”
That about sums it up.
The Forrester campaign is now headed to the United States Supreme Court, the normal recourse of Republicans who can’t win elections with majorities but aren’t inclined to see that as the end of the story.
The “money quote” slap at Sullivan was priceless.
