Just what I want to happen right by my house
TRENTON — President Barack Obama will appear at the PNC Arts Center in Holmdel … not New Brunswick … when he comes to New Jersey for a campaign rally for Gov. Jon Corzine next week.
The Corzine campaign announced on its Web site Thursday that the rally would be moved from Rutgers University in New Brunswick to accommodate a larger crowd.
Corzine campaign manager Maggie Moran says in a Web video the move was made to accommodate the anticipated crowd.
More than 50,000 people have signed up through the governor's Web site hoping to go. About 17,500 will be allowed to attend the July 16 rally.
The Garden State Parkway will be completely shut down for hours on a Thursday in the height of the Summer Shore season.
What could possibly go wrong?
$20 says this costs Corzine more votes than it gains him.

I work in New Brunswick, so he would have gotten me either coming or going. Route 18 will be jammed to the rafters with spillover traffic. Maybe I can just stay home and sleep until Nov. 2012.

Isn't that near where Lindbergh lived when his
baby was kidnapped?Hopewell? Strange case, questions
still linger.Since they didn't yet live in that
house how did Bruno know they'd be home that night?

Politicians are stupid that way, Bing. It's all about them.

You kill me, greg. No shit. You really do.
Never in a million years would I have thought of the Lindbergh baby. Although I will admit to it flashing to my mind every time I hear Gen. Norman Schwartzkopf's name, now that I know THAT connection.
