Doggerel for Forrester

Um. Is this some kind of joke?

Doug Forrester’s campaign Web site has a prominent link to A Lyrical Tribute to Doug, which turns out to be an extraordinarily bad poem by one Habibullah Saleem.

It’s also a very long poem, so I’ve edited out the slower parts. But really, read it all:

The price for Governor is loyalty and trust
The price for Governor is the absence of lust
Thoroughly qualified Doug Forrester for sure
Bringing to the voters the requirements for cure…

Down to Earth whether Black or White
Doug Forrester as Governor an amazing delight
With nothing to hide devoted and clean
Vote for Doug Forrester and not some scheme
Understanding New Jersey is to be alert
For health and economics he’s willing to work
Putting in place collective education
Inclusive strategies with appropriate inspiration
A family man with righteous support
Unauthorized characters we must abort…

Knows how to provide and care for our elders
Forrester’s character is that of a welder…

Really. Read it all.

2. The general election. In November, whichever two candidates make it out of the gubernatorial primary will face off to become the next New Jersey governor. While Phil Murphy (pictured) is the presumed favorite in the race due to current New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s dismal approval ratings tanking Republican credibility for many NJ voters, the results are still up in the air. Additionally, with 11 months until the race, there is still ample time for a dynamic shift that could leave another candidate at the top.
