    This will only serve to make his position stronger. It creates a huge contrast between himself (the wonderful caped crusader) and his opponent (a bitter old man resorting to attacks).

    Not my personal opinion per se, but I'd imagine that many individuals will see that contrast.

    •  That's the thing (6+ / 0-)

      Booker is so disgustingly obvious in his egotistical crusading for danger and heroism and cheap public stunts to get positive media, in a way that no other politician in the whole damn country even comes close to matching, and in a way that is uncomfortably similar to Putin's cult of personality attempts.

      Booker has been doing this sort of thing for years, while not being particularly progressive, nor doing a particularly good job as Mayor Newark. He talks and talks, and generally spouts some interesting or nice sounding ideas, but what's he actually done? I haven't seen any discussion of Booker's accomplishments in Newark, just his theatrics.
