"We hold these truths to be self-evident" . . . $40 please

William Vastine and Martin Marks are GOP candidates for State Assembly in the 22nd district. They are celebrating the fourth of July with a "community reading" of the Declaration of Independence at Brookside Park in Scotch Plains. Among the featured "invited" (which means they probably won't show up) guests are Congressman Leonard Lance (who more likely will be hiding in his basement to avoid wingnuts outraged over his vote on "cap and trade"), State Senator Tom Kean Jr., Chris Christie, Steve Lonegan and Assemblyman Rick Merkt.

Their campaign committee is charging $40 per person ($20 for children).

Just think how much money the founding fathers might have made if they charged for reading the Declaration of Independence.
