Joe Piscopo, funniest New Jesery zombie-cop (Dead Heat) ever, will announce his candidacy for Governor of New Jersey on NJN (public tv) sometime maybe. Piscopo says he was approached by ‘young businessmen’ who wish to remain anonomous, but that they like he are very concerned about the future of scandal-ridden New Jersey. Well if anyone can bring normalacy to the state it’s a zombie-cop.

This news, which broke on Friday in an on-air (CNN) interview, echoes of the Mike Ditka for U.S. Senate debacle. The new strategy of politics is if we need somebody fast, find someone famous, forget qualifications. Well that might work in Cali, but in Jersey talk of Piscopo for Governor is just dead heat.
