Technorati is indexing me again! They had to make a code change to fix the problem with my blog getting stuck in their queue. Kudos to Eric M. and the guys at GetSatisfaction.com where they have "community powered support for Technorati".
Well, they're "sorta, kinda" indexing me anyway. It's on a 24 hour tape delay or something. So I never get picked up by Memeorandum because they pull from Technorati and Technorati has stuff I posted yesterday listed as my latest blog entry. And that's old news to Memeorandum.

OK, that headline isn't entirely fair. Every waking moment, and most of the time while I'm asleep, I wonder about the sanity of the guys running the NJ GOP.
Of all the Republicans we could have picked to run against Bob "corruption is my middle name" Menendez, they dug up Joe Kyrillos? What, Diane Allen said "no"?
Look, I follow NJ politics pretty closely. I couldn't pick Joe Kyrillos out of a lineup. If you held a gun to my head I'd be hard pressed to name three things he's accomplished.
But it's his turn, so hey, let's nominate him for U.S. Senate. And who cares if he's A-OK with raising taxes, the country club Republican set has never felt comfortable with those Tea Party nuts anyway. Go along to get along, right?
And the NJ GOP wonders why I don't send them Dime One.
Thankfully I'm not alone. Meet Congressional candidate Eric Beck.
Eric Beck, a Republican businessman challenging incumbent U.S. Rep. Rush Holt (D-12th Dist.), said he disagrees with Kyrillos's remarks published in The Record this morning. Kyrillos said he would not sign Americans for Tax Reform's anti-tax pledge and would be open to raising some taxes on wealthy residents but did not get into specifics.
"I like Joe. I respect him. I will definitely be voting for him as our next United States Senator. But I disagree with his recent statement on raising taxes," Beck said. "We need to talk about growing the economy and creating jobs, not raising taxes."
Eric, you got stones. I admire that. I sent you a few bucks. Because after today the NJ GOP is gonna forget you ever existed. That's how they roll; just ask Anna Little.
Eric Beck for Congress! Because Joe Kyrillos is a putz.
