Senate President Dick Codey's response to the NJ GOP's Choice for Change is shameful and embarrassing. In a press release (not an off the cuff remark) issued today, Codey said,
"This is the same platform the Republicans ran on 16 years ago. History shows us that during the 10 years they ran the statehouse, they did none of this. Now all of a sudden they want to be reformers? That’s like saying Britney Spears is tired of partying and wants to be a cloistered nun."
For Codey, who once threatened a NJ Radio host with violence for making fun of his wife Mary Jo's mental illness, to score political points by making light of Britney Spear's all too public breakdown is disgraceful. Spears was recently ordered by a California family court to submit to twice weekly drugs tests and weekly psychiatric counseling.
