A Wave That Started On The Jersey Shore
Over 100 volunteers in Anna's Army descended upon Ocean Grove on short notice yesterday for a rally, door to door literature drop and show of force for Anna Little's interview with CNN.

I don't remember the national media ever paying attention to a New Jersey congressional race. Something is happening.
CNN's Soledad O'Brien interviewed Little and Congressman Frank Pallone yesterday. Little told MoreMonmouthMusings that she was very happy with how the interview went. Little understands that the segment will be the first part of a series on the mid-term election campaign. It is expected to air during the second week of September. No matter how CNN spins it, advantage Little. Something is happening.
Something has been happening for months. Its gaining traction. Those who subscribe to the conventional wisdom are starting to notice. They can see the wave coming.
Those who were resigned to Frank Pallone staying in congress are waking up. They are starting to invest in Anna Little's campaign. Little, who had only $16K on hand in June has raised over $200K and has over $100K on hand. That's still paltry compared to Pallone's $4 million +, but the cash is coming with the wave and Little won't need a million to beat Pallone.
As my friends as InTheLobbly said yesterday, "make no mistake -- if Pallone is defeated, that Republican wave began right off the Jersey Shore."
It's not a Republican wave. It's an American wave that rejects the Obama/Pelosi/Pallone/Holt extremism.
