I can’t speak for Virginia but I lived under Jon Corzine and the miserable Democratic leadership in The People’s Republic of New Jersey long enough to say: good riddance. It’s about time New Jersey started taking out the trash. Who knows if these new Republicans will be any better but it’s hard to imagine it getting any worse – at least in New Jersey.

Julius Bloomberg in New York calls himself a Republican but that’s rather like calling the World Series of Poker a sporting event just because it appears on ESPN. Talk about creative labeling. We can only hope and pray that he doesn’t try to parlay his success into a national campaign – especially a Perot style third party run. The last thing this country needs is another two term Democratic President elected by a distracted plurality of left wing voters while a third of the electorate is enamored by yet another self important billionaire ego maniac who thinks government should be “run” like General Motors.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for a third party but unless the names Ron Paul or Newt Gingrich appear on the ballot, you can probably count me out. Even Ron Paul carries the lunatic conspiracy wing of the electorate as baggage whether he likes it or not. Enough crackpots with spaghetti strainers on their heads talking about UFO’s and secret world governing organizations is sufficient to sink any campaign. Besides that, third parties usually lead to the worst of the two major party candidates getting elected.

Republicans may be excited about tonight’s victory but 1.) it’s very bad in politics to peak too early and 2.) if the term “Republican” indicates a continuation of the watered down George W Bush type of statism, the best idea may well be to move to the Caribbean somewhere away from it all.
