Save My Home State!

I'm not a political news junkie, but Matt Bai's piece on the upcoming New Jersey gubernatorial election is just fantastic. A preview:

[Corzine] can no longer conceal his own defensiveness. With voters, [he] sometimes punctuates his answers with a single word — seriously — as if they otherwise might take him for a jokester. During our conversation in his office, I prefaced a question by acknowledging that Corzine had, indeed, gotten quite a bit done in his term. To my surprise, the governor leaned forward and cut me off. He seemed to think I was patronizing him. “No, Matt, I don’t know whether you believe this, but I think we have gotten a lot done!” he said, clearly exasperated. “That’s the thing people don’t get.”

I'm going to bother my family about this post haste.
