NJ.com managing editor John Shabe, who’s on vacation, couldn’t stay away from yesterday’s big Garden State news, so he found an internet connection and did a roundup of how bloggers around the state handled it. Gigglechick, who is clearly better at Photoshop than the Barista (especially when the Barista’s art director is on vacation), came up with McGreevey holding the gay pride flag, along with this observation:
okay, so it’s not a where were you when kennedy got shot, reagan got shot, space shuttle blew up, wham! broke up, princess diana died, jfk jr died, the other space shuttle blew up or anything… but i was at the vet.
Other space shuttle?
That old pol, the Prop, who was actually in Trenton when the news broke, said he’s heard these rumors for years:
Didn’t anyone notice all those slim, well-groomed men he was appointing to various boards and commissions?
Shabe, who was leaving a Red Sox game when he got the news by cell phone from his wife, South Orange blogger Tracey Randinelli, thought she was joking. Several Barista readers, who first caught the news here, had the same reaction.
(Whisper: Yes. Yes it is. And everyone in the media is playing along. McGreevey gay, yes… that’s the ticket…)
