Christie Lets the Loonies Churn

By Cole

What part of “I’m not running for president” don’t the Republicans understand? New Jersey governor Chris Christie has told them for the MILLIONTH time he doesn’t want the job.

If Republicans hadn’t humored Tea Party wackos, they wouldn’t have ended up with the motley collection of fools and misfits who have risen to the top of the party like swamp scum.

Now they’ve got to live with it.

Meanwhile, Sarah Palin in her garish bus is popping wheelies in Walmart parking lots all over Nowhere, USA, trying to get somebody’s attention and praying for the Tea Party to come and beg her to be the savior who drives Obama out of office.

Her requirements for the job are simple:

  • No participating in debates
  • No interviews or Q&As she hasn’t scripted
  • No running in pesky primaries

If Palin had it her way, there would be no election, either. She’d just be anointed — and probably get bored and quit 2 years into her term.

I have no idea how good or bad a governor Chris Christie is (I’m sure reader MorganLF can fill us in), but his refusal to let himself be talked into running seems like a sign of integrity, which is unheard of in a politician.

Of what remains, here’s my feline take …

  • Michele Bachmann – Talked herself into oblivion, thank goodness.
  • Rick Santorum – Invisible Man.
  • Mitt Romney – Sleeps in a coffin.
  • Newt Gingrich – Senile.
  • Rick Perry – Keeps letting his mouth shoot him in the foot.
  • Ron Paul – Flake with a few good ideas.
  • Jon Huntsman – My favorite, but reason and common sense doom him.
  • Herman Cain – Hmmmm…

Cain’s star is rising, but could the Tea Party ever stomach a race between 2 black cats?

I suspect TPers would stay home in droves on election day, finally dispelling any doubt they’re a bunch of racists. If it came down to casting a vote for ANOTHER black man (I mean, where’s it going to end?), they’d just let Obama stay in the White House.

    The gas bags, like the neo-con right wing nut Monica Crowley who is a regular commenter on the Mc Laughlin Group and a Tea Bagger shill, have been gushing about him since day one. Our Governor fancies himself King, and has set himself to the task of protecting the extremely wealthy, while union busting and trying to take over the North Jersey water commission (that does not receive state funding) by making demands for “transparency” when it is an efficient operation that serves over 3 million people and does not need to be brought to heel by his majesty.
    His experience in government includes a stint as lobbyist. He lobbied the Securities Industry Association to block the inclusion of securities fraud under the state’s Consumer Fraud Act. His record as Governor so far includes awarding big fat no bid contract to a friend that declined to prosecute his brother in a huge SEC investigation in 2005.
    He is morbidly obese a heart attack waiting to happen. For Chrissakes he is in the public arena can’t he drop a few? Clearly he has no self -discipline and a ton (pun intended) of ambition. He did not jump in because he does not have the money and no one knows him, yet. If Lord Blubber makes it through his first term alive we’ll see him run.

    Thank you, Morgan. We knew you’d be able to sum up Christie so there’s no mistake. OK, it sounds like the GOP was just grasping at another species of scum to throw into the pot and we all dodged a bullet when he said no.

    Zappa, I think Herman Cain is either a genius, or the biggest idiot ever to make it into national politics having nothing but pizza on his resume.

    And just when you think it can’t get any more ludicrous, Virginia’s own governor, Bob McDonnell, is allegedly harboring dreams of being a contender for the VP spot on somebody’s ticket, which sent him on a jaunt to New Hampshire. He’s about as dumb and backward-thinking as you can find, next to Palin.

    In a politically divided house, the GOP side of the Moore voting contingent opines that the lack of a viable candidate will ensure another Obama term. We shall see but as Cole articulated above, this seems to be a probability. Good grief, is this the best the US can do in terms of GOP candidates? What a farce. Strange times that we have such derisiveness and, frankly, lunacy in terms of those thinking about throwing their hat into the ring. Our best and brightest are clearly staying out of the race…credit to their wisdom not to engage in a really nasty state of affairs. Sad part is, when we need that wisdom the most, those who might bring it choose to stay out of the mix.

    Britta, the inmates are definitely running the GOP asylum these days. And the Democats aren’t much better.
