Wow! That was quick.

Wealthy Democratic activist Beth Mason is weighing a run to fill the U.S. Senate seat vacated after the death of Frank Lautenberg, The Star-Ledger has learned.Matt Friedman, with the Ledger wrote on Friday:
Over the past several days? When Lautenberg was ALIVE?
So, when she wrote her press release for the Star Ledger on Wednesday (Thursday at the latest) she'd already been getting calls for "several days"?
Let me guess: Lautenberg contacted her via Ouija Board and spelled: R-U-N-B-E-T-H-R-U-N.
The woman just can't hep making a jackass out of herself. She cannot gracefully withdraw her name from consideration for U.S. Senate, she must invent a scenario of being important and wanted by powerful people as absurd as it may be: Democratic leaders begging her to run within minutes of Lautenberg's death. Never mind that Cory Booker is the choice of real (not imaginary) Democratic leaders. Mason's spin simply draws attention to her opportunistic grab for a dead man's Senate seat before his body is cold.
Mason must be the center of attention at all times, and if she's not getting it she creates it; chaos surrounds her and her paid entourage of thugs and political operatives. The rest of us just shake our heads and wait for the next stunt.
Hey 2nd Ward, hows that recall going?
