TOPIC OF THE DAY: Barnegat election

Too hungry for victory
When my daughter ran for class office last year, she bought 200 Dum Dum lollipops and put a label on each one that said, “Don't be a dum dum, vote for Stephanie for president!”
I thought it was cute, but I am shocked at the level the candidates for Barnegat Township Committee have stooped to. I recently received an invitation to attend a free, all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast sponsored by the Barnegat Republican County Committee.
Are you kidding me? How hard up are these people? They have distanced themselves from the GOP and the Bush Republicans by forsaking the traditional red, white and blue along with the elephant from their campaign signs, instead using green and yellow. Hey, why don't they just borrow from FDR and say “A chicken in every pot,” and a grand for every vote.
I know it is said that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach, but I'd rather eat humble pie, myself.
