Cory Booker's Talent for Fiction...

Cory Booker, currently a mayor, is running against Steve Lonegan for a U.S. Senate seat. Lloyd Marcus summarizes that race:

"National conservative and Republican leaders are lining up to help propel Conservative Republican Steve Lonegan to victory in the upcoming Special Election for U.S. Senate.
If we win this race it will be extremely difficult for Harry Reid and the Democrats to maintain their majority in the U.S. Senate.
 
The key issue in this race is money.  The liberal Democrat candidate, Cory Booker, has been endorsed by Barack Obama and is raising millions of dollars for his campaign.
 
We must pool together the contributions of thousands of patriots such as yourself to level the playing field.  To pitch in, simply make a contribution of any amount from as little as $5 up to the maximum allowed contribution of $5,000 - CONTRIBUTE HERE.
 
"

And what are Mayor Booker's qualifications? I've not been in New Jersey for many years and don't know either of these gentlemen, although Lloyd Marcus has been campaigning on Steve Lonegan's behalf, and as Marcus readers know, Rand Paul has also expressed support for the Lonegan campaign. However, Becket Adams has some details about Booker's potential talent for writing fiction:

Composite characters, especially the ones that differ by only 1 to 2% from a stereotype every reader could draw, are the stuff of which commercially successful fiction is made...but New Jersey voters may want to ask one another whether that's the talent they want in the U.S. Senate.
