New Jerseys

Some ideas for McGreevey-inspired T-shirts:

“I Am A Gay American”

“I'm Not Gay, But My Governor Is”

“I Broke My Leg in Cape May Under Mysterious Circumstances, and All I Got Was This Lousy T-Shirt”

“Ha Am Im Ha Golan”*

Anyway, following a weekend of reflection, here are a few more notes on this story:

- I’ve been arguing this in the comments of various other blogs since Thursday, so I might as well say it here too: I see no reason why McGreevey should have to resign early, simply because he’s the one who chose to quit, and should therefore be allowed to dictate the terms of his own resignation himself. Unless the Republicans can come up with some smoking-gun impeachable offense in the next 30 days, but I somehow doubt they can.

- I was expecting to see McGreevey-gate on the covers of both newsweekies, but the scandal lost out to “Big Cats” on the Time side, and “When Fat Attacks” on Newsweek. Nice to see they have such important topics to cover, in the middle of both an election campaign and a war.

- There’s a Garden State Blog, by actor/director Zach Braff in connection with the aforementioned movie of that name; Zach has some thoughts on McGreevey as well.

- And finally, I think it would be really hilarious if Dina Matos-McGreevey followed the Arianna Huffington career path, and suddenly became a radical political activist on the opposite side of the spectrum from her now-gay former husband.

*This is the message on the Hebrew bumper sticker below. All the rage during the Oslo process when Israel appeared set to return the Golan Heights to Syria, the sticker translates to "The People are with the Golan." McGreevey's alleged lover, you'll remember, is named Golan.
