Who wouldn’t be interested if the governor of your state for whatever reason of their due process thought [you were] worthy, in their opinion?
Please Run Al! It would be hilarious to see Corey Booker get 90 percent of the vote.
he was appointed by Christie to the New Jersey Hall of Fame Advisory Commission and placed on the board of the New Jersey Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund last year
he shows the kind of career path people sometimes have to the Senate, from celebrity and volunteer work.
And speaking of the SAG, has Leiter had some experience in the MLBPA leadership? I can't really remember, but it seems to me he was a player rep, at least.
George Murphy, who had solid credentials as a movie hoofer, became a Senator after directing the entertainment at several Presidential inaugurations (and doing not much else besides, except show up at other events). Murphy, however, had at least been president of the Screen Actors Guild (like Ronald Reagan). But he shows the kind of career path people sometimes have to the Senate, from celebrity and volunteer work. Heck, Leiter might already have more public-service experience than Arnold Schwarzenegger did before running for Governor :)
Of course, one has to admit that movies are slightly more important to the economy of California than the Mets are to the economy of New Jersey …

Ahnold was an interesting governor it turned out. California has such deep structural problems, it kind of needs weirdos like Arnold and now Moonbeam to try to work things out.
he doesn’t much care for what he calls “the degradation of society,’’ due in large part to “liberal aspects of our media and culture,’’ where “young people are just disrespectful.
He seems like a somewhat intelligent man, which is good of course, but we should want more of a senator than being somewhat intelligent.
My only conclusion about people like Leiter is that they have some sort of inordinate fascination with internet pornography and/or hip hop and/or gambling that they portray as stern disapproval.
What's his position on jerking off in the bullpen?
In general, though, it's not that important to be super-bright in Congress. Rush Holt is probably the smartest and he's a fine Congressman whom I'd be proud to have represent me, but he's not like a super-Congressman running rings around the rest. Much of his intelligence is basically wasted on the job.
Partisan silliness aside, Leiter does seem pretty lightweight compared to someone like Booker.
