Blue on Blue: 43-year old New Jersey Democrat Cory Booker needs “a spanking” because he’s being “disrespectful,” according to 89-year old New Jersey Democrat Frank Lautenberg. Why? Because Booker has stated that he’s running for
Lautenberg’s Senate seat the people’s Senate seat that’s currently being held by the Jurassic Lautenberg after swapping places in 2002 with disgraced fellow NJ Democrat Bob Torricelli:
Lautenberg aides previously told Politico that Booker, a rising star in the Democratic Party, is “disrespectful” for openly seeking Lautenberg’s seat prior to the 88-year-old senator officially announcing his retirement — which still has not occurred.
“I have four children. I love each one of them. I can’t tell [you] that one of them wasn’t occasionally disrespectful, so I gave them a spanking and everything was OK,” Lautenberg said, after an Inquirer reporter questioned him about his aides’ comments Tuesday.
You run with that position, Frank — run with it all the way until November of 2014. Don’t let anybody talk you out of it.
