Peggy Patronizing Toward New Jerseyians

Peggy Noonan who seems to be suffering from A.D.D. lately still manages to provide a pretty amusing and IMO accurate description of New Jersey voters:

“New Jersey continues to be blithely uninterested in charges of personal or professional corruption, assuming that politics itself is corrupt and draws a certain kind of practitioner. They’re like Southerners who used to support Huey Long and Edwin Edwards, only without the dizzy assumption that all will be well. They too say, ‘Come on baby, let the good times roll,’ only with a certain pessimism, and dour expressions. This makes them, to me, quite loveable.”
