Daily News, indeed
The NY Daily News came up with another one of the NJ TV ads, with a twist,
Hi. I’m New Jersey Gov. Jim McGreevey. Surely, you saw me in commercials hawking the state’s “Do Not Call” registry. And you may remember I was in the news a lot way back in August, when I came out as “a gay American,” acknowledged an adulterous affair with a man and resigned my post effective Nov. 15. Well, that day has arrived. But a lot has happened since I pledged to step down.
My ex-beau Golan Cipel decided not to file his threatened lawsuit. And people from around the country say being gay is no reason to resign the governorship. So, to the riled Republicans, backstabbing Democrats and nattering newspapers who whined that it would be wrong to saddle my state with an unelected governor until 2006, I say this: I’m here. I’m queer. I’m staying. Get used to it.
He wouldn’t dare, would he?
He’s daring, alright. I can even hear My Way playing in the background.
