Dumb as a box of hammers
You have to hand it to New Jersey Senate candidate Tom Kean Jr. (R) -- he's certainly an optimist. Though Ned Lamont won a decisive victory based on his anti-war campaign, and though Kean's opponent, Dem incumbent Bob Menendez, is one of the few pols who actually voted against the war, Kean has still figured out a way to interpret Lamont's win as a good sign for...Kean.
How? Kean, who's said he would have voted for the war, said the other day that he thinks if the voters were mad enough to toss Lieberman, they'll be willing to toss incumbent Menendez, too -- nevermind that Menendez is against the war and Lieberman's for it. Who cares what the candidate's actual positions are, after all?
