The past several days of Newark Mayor Cory Booker’s life have been painfully amusing to watch.
Painful because Booker, a rising Democratic star, is such a good guy. Amusing, because rarely are Americans treated to such premier seats in the political theater of truth and consequence.
That is, tell the truth and beware the consequences.
Mind you, if you read the whole thing you’re left with the impression that Ms. Parker is mostly worried that the current oh-so-partisan division in this country will interfere with her long-term career strategy of appeasing the Washington cocktail circuit. Still, sucks to be Cory Booker right now, huh?
