Garrett doesn't want to run away from his extremist mentor Dick Cheney. New Jersey doesn't want another Dick Cheney in the House of Representatives. We need to boot Ernie out.
We trust that Scott Garrett showed up on time.
Vice President Dick Cheney was the speaker Friday at a $1,000 per plate fundraising for Garrett at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York City.
Recall that when Cheney came to Newark to raise money for the U.S. Senate campaign of Thomas H. Kean Jr. earlier this year, Kean showed up late. He said he was caught in traffic, but many thought Kean wanted to avoid being photographed with Cheney, whose approval rating in New Jersey is about 30 percent.
Garrett, whose congressional district includes Warren and parts of Sussex counties, is probably the most conservative congressman from New Jersey. That puts him in the same corner -- philosophically -- as Cheney.
Contribute and volunteer to Paul Aronsohn. By the way, I am interviewing Paul on Friday, so put your questions in the comments section so that Paul can hear about the concerns of the netroots.
