For Amanda






I know my friend Amanda will appreciate this.

In New Jersey, the election ended quickly for Mr. Forrester, who called Mr. Corzine shortly after 10 p.m. to concede. About 45 minutes later, an exuberant Mr. Corzine appeared before cheering supporters in East Brunswick, the Bon Jovi song, "In These Arms," blaring in the background. Mr. Corzine told voters, "Hold me accountable."
Emphasis mine.

You gotta love The Jerz.

Debbie Harry is also from Jersey...but I guess "Rapture" doesn't make such a nice campaign song.

Though I thought we were having THE rapture last night, what with all those Democrats winning...about damn time!
