I guess the recorded voice of Rudy Guiliani was too tired from calling me everyday for the last week, so the recorded voice of Joe Piscopo filled in.
Joe says I should vote for Tom Kean Jr. because he's a great friend of the Italian American community. Joe bases this declaration on the fact that Tom Kean Jr. supported the Supreme Court nomination of New Jersey goomba Samuel Alito. Democrat ("My party," Joe called them) Bob Menedez not only voted against Alito, but supported a filibuster movement against him.
So fuhgeddabout him!
I'm of 100% Irish descent. I think Joe Piscopo has a steroid-enhanced lump of mutton for a brain. And I think Tom Kean is a liberal jerk. But I'm voting for him on Tuesday. Because he's "our" liberal jerk and at least he doesn't take bags of cash for official corruption just like his opponent Bob "Little Torch" Menedez.
Wow! I got one of those calls from Rummy telling me to vote for Snowe and Woodcock.
...but I think maybe it was Rich Little doing it for him
Right he is our "liberal" jerk and we need him to win right now, but don't you wish things weren't this tight and we could get rid of all the loser RINO's? Word this morning is there is an uptick for Chafee in recent polls.
Thomas Kean is not the ideal politician, but compared to Menendez, he is AN OFFER YOU CAN'T REFUSE!!!
Yep, I got one of those calls as well. Amazing, apparently Joe (a liberal) was none too pleased at the treatment Alito received.
Honestly, I hate to see us lose Santorum and DeWine (who has been with us on everything), and keep Chafee.
However, I just want Republicans to win. The faces of the media will be priceless.
Laura Bush called me, but it was to get my neck/sleeve length for an order of shirts Dubya (ssssh, it's a secret) is surprising me with at Christmas.
She wouldn't say who they were from, but she said he had a Dubya in his name.
While we were on the phone, we updated each other's addresses and e-mails.
She's email@example.com, in case anyone needs it.
"You are blind as a bat, and I have sight!
Side by side, you are my amigo,
let's not fiiiiiiiight!"
Sure do... but it won't happen overnight and more important, that is a Primary fight. By the time the general elections come around, it's too late.
in some states you deal with what you have, none of us vote for perfect candidates and as a Libertarian I have to vote pragmatically...that means for whoever the republican candidte is.... So....GO Kean.
HEMMER: You're a lifelong Democrat, right? And you talk about the highest property taxes in the country in your home state. Sounds a bit conservative.
PISCOPO: I know. I know. I could tell. As I go through the different items and my agenda in my head, you know, as people talk to me, of what I stand for, I am very, very conservative, but I'm a lifelong Democrat. I believe -- a proud Democrat.
It's the working man's party, and New Jersey has its roots in working class. Immigrants came from all over the country and they settled in New Jersey. Like my grandparents, they couldn't even speak English when they first came here.
So yes, I'm a Democrat, very conservative, but highest property tax in the country, highest insurance, car insurance rates in the country, and I can't understand how a great state like the one I'm in now, Florida, Texas, Nevada, they have no state income tax. How do they do it and why can't Jersey do it?
Who is Joe Piscopo?
I got a call from a nice young Republican volunteer. I told her she can count on my wife and I pulling the 'R' vote columns this Tuesday. I'll talk to real live callers, but I hang up on tape recordings.
If anything, Joe "I'm from Joisey" Piscopo would turn me off from voting for Kean.
I just got a call telling me that the Democrats are going to repeal ALL the tax cuts and not to vote for them. At least they're out there working the phones.
Ben Stein called me yesterday. I wasn't home at the time, but he was kind enough to leave a message.
"You shouldn't vote Republican, Johnny. My mother voted Republican once.
I think he did some TV comedy about 30 years ago.
The Hildebeast left a message on our phone the other day (we live in California). I answered the phone yesteday and it was a taped message from Slick Willie calling for the Rat Lt. Governor candidate. I wanted to fling the phone across the room.
Speaking of Slick Willie, he's in NJ today shilling for Menendez.
Bubba called me as well, something about Maria Cantdowell. I hung up before I heard the whole thing....
Robert Redford called my mom.
Yeap I got my call this morning during Mass. I love it when he said I am a democrate but voting for Tom Kean.
"ARE YOU FROM JEU-ZEEE ! ? "
He was a regular on Saturday NIght Live for some years.
My cousin was security for one of the casinos in AC, and said he was one of the most personable celebrities, down to earth and no aires.
Face it, mickey, you look like a Vito.
No way i vote for RHINO Tom Kean especially after his
disparaging remark about Rush Limbaugh. That was the final straw in my book. The cesspool plantations in northeast NJ
will easily elect Menendez. I'd like to have a dollar for
every dead Rat and illegal alien that will vote up there.
If they call me, if they leave a message, I hang up or immediately erase. I know who I'm voting for and I don't need their help or encouragement!
LOL. Linda Lingle has called me TWICE! (Hawaii's governor)
Texas sent us absentee ballots as well - we thought as soon as we registered in another state (Hawaii) that Hawaii would notify Texas of our change in residence. Guess not.
Mason Dixon has Chaffee ahead.
Joe called me, also. I have zero Italian blood, but I still plan to hold my nose and vote for Kean on Tuesday. I'm not thrilled with Kean, but he's better than the alternative.
The phone has run four times so far today, and all four were computerized messages. At least I heard from a real live person yesterday.
I'll raise your Ben Stein to a Clint Eastwood stumping for Bruce McPherson.
Saw Joe on Cavuto
he's a decent guy
I hung up before he could talk me out of voting Republican.
You get all the cool callers.
"This means fargin war!"
REASON #1 TO SUPPORT THE GOP IN EVERY SINGLE RACE (*)....
"Bob Menedez not only voted against Alito, but supported a filibuster movement against him."
IT'S THE JUDGES, STUPID!
(*) EVEN IN CT
Tom Kean Jr isnt a 'jerk' at all... he's just a moderate RINO. But he's not jerk and he's no crook and he's not a partisan hack on the other side like Menendez - Menendez is a corrupt sockpuppet to Schumer, Hillary and Kennedy who is against almost all that we stand for. Fire him.
