EDISON - Some residents think that New Jersey politicians seemed angrier than ever this year in their attack ads.

It may be the state of the economy or tea-party candidates who want to change how government runs, but this year's election could be remembered most for "The Politics of Anger."

On election night, Rep. Frank Pallone (D-N.J.) called victory before his opponent, Anna Little, was ready to concede.

When the votes were in, one of Little's supporters gave an angry post-election interview in which she said "I feel sorry for New Jersey and this country. Well, we did win in some other places, but New Jersey will just have to learn."

In his congressional victory speech, Jon Runyan snubbed his opponent and didn't offer a congratulations to Rep. John Adler (D-N.J.) for running a good race.

Political analysts say these and other examples are a sign of just how much anger is out there.
