The 23rd gets another right wing zealot

Just when you thought the 23rd Assembly district was safe, up comes another right wing zealot.

Mike Doherty ---pro-life, pro-gun, anti-marriage equality, doesn't-believe in global warming [and maybe questions evolution, too] is out. And now John DiMaio is in. Mr. DiMaio also is a "pro-life, pro-gun, anti-marriage equality, doesn't-believe in global warming" kinda guy. Don't know his stand on evolution, yet.

Unlike Mike, this guy used to be a Democrat. How'd we ever let him get away?

Technically, he will replace Marcia Karrow. But in spirit, he's closer to Doherty.

From the ever thinning Courier News:

Republican county committee members from Hunterdon and Warren counties voted Saturday to have John DiMaio of Hackettstown fill the 23rd Legislative District seat.

DiMaio, who serves as a Warren County freeholder, defeated two Hunterdon County freeholders for the seat during a meeting held in Clinton Township.

In the first ballot, he earned 129 votes, followed by Erik Peterson with 104 and Matt Holt with 56. That eliminated Holt and, in the second round of balloting, DiMaio edged Peterson 153-141.

However, DiMaio said he would not immediately assume his new post, citing pending matters in Warren County.

Good luck to Mr. DiMaio. We will be watching to see what you do when you do take the seat.

Can you clarify DiMaio's stance on Global warming?

Does he not believe in it at all or does he believe it is happening but not by anthropogenic means?

Joey... complete off topic but in a previous post we discussed CIA torturing of terrorist suspects.

This statement in today's WSJ seems disturbing "He (CIA director Panetta) also said that while CIA interrogations will have new limits, President Barack Obama can still use his wartime powers to authorize harsher techniques if necessary."

What does this MEAN? "Harsher Techniques" sounds like a nice way to say "torture" doesn't it??

This whole article seems to point out that little is going to change under Obama. Sure Gitmo is closing... but where are they going to send them? Yemen?

Here is the article: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB123560612118376885.html

And also might I add the article quotes Panetta as saying, "..the administration is evaluating the effectiveness of so-called enhanced interrogation tactics such as waterboarding and will make recommendations to the president on what techniques should be allowed."

Joey... what in God's name is the Obama adminstration even evaluating waterboarding for? Waterboarding is TORTURE right?

You cannot possibly agree with this?? You are going to make your voice heard and complain about this right?
