OK, he did it. Torricelli dropped out
. According to Stephen Green
, this was done at the urging of Bill Clinton and Terry McAuliffe. Of course, according to Scrappleface
, The Big Me has changed his legal residence to the corner table at the Paramus Starbucks. (It figures. Two hours after I mention him, he comes up with an absolutely hilarious take on the whole mess and gets yet another Instalink.)
Still no word on who the sacrificial lamb (replacement candidate! I meant to say replacement candidate) will be. This article
assumes that McGreevey gets to appoint someone to run in Torricelli's place. That seems unreasonable. Why would the Governor of New Jersey get to appoint someone to run under the rubric of the Democratic Party?
Does anyone out there really know?
