Yeah, I know.  House Majority Leader Eric Cantor lost his primary to a Tea Party guy.  I guess there are still some Republicans out there who are interested in saving the country.

But the earthquake I’m talking about is right here in Jersey, at Exit 14A to be exact.  Bayonne police captain and political upstart Jimmy Davis has pulled off a stunning upset win over incumbent Mayor Mark Smith.  And Davis running-mate Gary La Pelusa won his election against an incumbent councilman, Ray Graeves.

Why should this matter to us?  Stay tuned.


Mayor Smith

Happier days.  Smith, center, with some unidentified supporters in 2013.

    As far as I know the guy who defeated Cantor is an academic. Don’t look to any college professors to do the nation any good.

    I represent that remark. While I wouldn’t trust the majority of my fellow professors at The College of New Jersey there are a few exceptions. Do you favor the usual lawyers fresh out of the shark tank?
    Congrats to Jimmy Davis and the hard working folks who deserved better in Bayonne. The truth is that it is people and not dollars that vote.
