Behind the spin

You've got to love how some politicians spin the news. Take, for example, Assemblyman Joseph Cryan, D-Union, the Democratic State Committee chairman. In response to campaign finance reports Tuesday that showed the Democrats had $4.2 million in cash through the end of March while the Republicans had $1.4 million, Cryan attributed the difference to public approval of the job his party has done controlling the governor's office and both houses of the Legislature.

No, it's not. The Average Joe and Jane New Jersey aren't swelling the party's coffers. It's the big-time campaign donors and special interests currying favor with the party in power. They enjoy having the ears of the Trenton power elite and want to make sure they return after November's election. It's hardly a performance endorsement.

I agree. The party in power always gets more in donations. Who does Cryan think he's fooling?
