Democrats spent most of the decade of the Nineties trying to tell us that character doesn’t matter. Now they’re taking the opportunity of the New Jersey Senate race to try to reinforce that lesson:
NJ.com is certainly no fan of Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ). Three years ago, the news outlet’s editorial board called on Menendez to resign over allegations of corruption. But now, that same editorial board is telling readers to “choke it down, and vote for Menendez.”
Yes, that dude should have totally resigned over his corruption, but only if he was going to be safely replaced by another Democrat. If there’s a chance we might lose power to a Republican, you should “choke it down” and vote for him anyway.
