"Keely Magee" sounds like something Leslie Knope would call someone she's mad at when she's flustered.

Please. Doesn't the Murphy campaign know how you do things in New Jersey? Unless you offered them gold bars and cars, you are getting nothing!

Does Tammy Murphy possess any qualifications besides her MRS degree?

Expand full comment

She owns a pro sports team and worked for Goldman Sachs, no previous elected or government work, so I'd say she's anti-qualified.

of course they'll throw a young woman under the bus instead of admitting their strong arm tactics

As a suddenly not-proud resident of NJ, couldn't be more pissed about Murphy's intrusion or her campaign's tactics. Ready to go to the wall for Kim. He's smart, diligent and not whatever the Murphys are. Freaking privilege never takes a day off, apparently.

I have no idea why Tammy Murphy wants to be a Senator. Her and Phil are extremely wealthy. Not billionaires, but their net worth is around Mitt Romney’s level of wealth.

Phil’s a good governor.

His term ends next year. He can’t run again because of term limits. Can’t serve more than two consecutive terms in a row, but he could run again in 4 years.

Other than wanting to get involved with the big wheels in D.C., I’m not sure what Tammy gets out of being a Senator. She’s never been overtly political before.

Maybe she supported his campaign and now it is time for him to support his.

They wouldn't have to move ... and that her hubby runs after her one term. It's an "Amelda Marcos" level move.

To continue to subvert our democracy. Power corrupts yada yada.

Time was, nobody paid any attention to political spouses (almost always women) except to applaud them when they beautified something.

I'm thinking we should rethink that custom.

No Stuart, that was odious and sexist.

Her campaign did a thing. Your response is tee hee silence women.

Not ok.

OT. My health.

Already my CT scan came back positive, in that they actually did detect a brain, which allegedly is working normal. High blood pressure, though I did have 3 cups of coffee beforehand, but they gave me tiny little pills anyway, which is the first time I've ever taken drugs (except in the 1970s from the street, because that was the fashion back then).

Finally got the hospital to release my blood test results. Only reason I got all this testing was because I fell down and couldn't get up for a couple of minutes (Cool Hand Luke: What we have here is a failure to communicate, re the brain signal to the legs.) Only reason I pressured for the blood results was because my neighbor just wouldn't stop pestering me to get them.

Gawd they test for everything. All numbers within operational limits of the aircraft. No nanites detected, no nanobots, no midi-chlorians, no enhanced 5G from my Covid vaccines, no recent evidence of poisoning from tetrodotoxin or sodium cyanide. James Cagney in White Heat: "Top of the world, ma!"

But were there any Bill Gates tracking microchips. That could be the problem, one of them shorted out.

OK, all good except -- why did you fall down????

Expand full comment

Because brain and brain, what is brain? (Signal source to legs suffered some man-in-the-middle attack; that's what I'm going with.)

So, since all tests show I'm tippy-top, I guess that makes me a one-time dork. I got better, and am now my James Dean cool self. Whew. Missed a bullet there. Would hate to think the dork syndrome was a permanent condition.
