Beyond the passionless warnings and precautionary social media pablum that accompanies the arrival of big storms, there seems to be little else a politician can do to prove themselves to be adept at feeling the pain of their constituents.

But if there’s one man who has mastered the medium, it’s Newark Mayor Cory Booker. With a tweet earlier today about Nemo, he has proven once again that he’s the best in the game.

I think we’d all love to see that Dvar Torah. It’d give us something to talk about, other than the weather.
