The future of the “electable” and “inevitable” GOP stable, establishment favorite Chris Christie…

…agrees with New York Governor Andrew Cuomo — “WHO NEEDS TEN BULLETS TO SHOOT A DEER?  YEAAAARRRGGGH!” — 98% of the time.  Because staunch.

Reached for comment, a defensive Ann Coulter muttered something about Jon Edwards’ “gay hair,” then quickly ducked into a Panda Express, where she hoped her PR team could get a photo of her slapping a Muslim.

  1. Eric Bolling is off my list of respectable news guys. He said on Friday that he was all for a guy like Chris Christie.

    Maybe living in New Jersey has started to effect Bolling’s sense. Stick to the market, Eric.

  2. Panda Express doesn’t offer brown rice they do not care about my health very much I don’t think

  3. Fageddaboudit, Jeff – it’s Joisey!

    Stupid and useless is what they do.


    Oh, is that what he said? I thought it was “Who needs to shoot more than ten bullets a year”?

  5. Remember when Christie told union members in exacting detail where they could stick it?

    Good times.

  6. What is this urge to crown our next Republican presidential candidate so soon after their last pick was such a failure?
    Fine. Go ahead and talk up Christie. That’ll give the MSM someone to actively undermine for the next few years. No way is he getting the nomination.

  7. whoever raisers the most moneys will get the nomination I bet

    if I had to guess

  8. Karl the Rovester, the guy who gave us our last two FAIL picks, will tell us what to do.

  9. As worn out as Rove is, this is just plain stupid.

  10. 5 letter word/ clue-Actress ___ Davis
    Thought it was Bette-but it was Geena
    That’s it, fuck it, I’m done-no hope-food seems tasteless now

  11. Ann who???

  12. Pablo, I think that’s what happens when our side tries to use Alinsky’s rules. It just ends up looking dishonest.

    If we profess to promote liberty, we must understand personal virtue is a condition, honesty (including the intellectual kind) being primary.

    Rove is no fascist. If I had to peg him, it would be he’s a corporatist.

  13. Rove is the B-side of the fascist government. He’s the private sector stooge along with the Immelts and the Dimons who play ball with the government fascists to make their cronyism and control of markets possible.

  14. (hit Submit too early)

    Rove enables the fascists to be who they are, and he accepts the orts and leavings his government masters fling to him.

    He’s a lapdog.

    Screw him.

  15. Rational: “He’s the private sector stooge along with the Immelts and the Dimons who play ball with the government fascists to make their cronyism and control of markets possible.”

    Irrational: “Rove is a NAZI!!”

  16. Rove is no fascist. If I had to peg him, it would be he’s a corporatist.

    He’s neither.

    Rove is a dinosaur, a leftover bit of chewy morsel from the post-Goldwater, “We must put a human face on conservatism” days.

    The old Nixonian two-step: talk like Patrick Henry, govern like Woodrow Wilson.

    He represents the past, not the future. At least, not the future of a viable conservative movement.

  17. As I understand it, fascism is different from communism only in that government controls private industry instead of owning it outright.

    I don’t think Rove wants industry to be controlled by government, but he thinks government should be run like a corporation. In other words, he believes in top down control by central authority, but…oh, I see, side B…

  18. poor geena she hasn’t had real work since she played the hoochie president on abc for to help hillary

  19. The internationalist (i.e., universalist “scientific” character) component of communism as over-against the more circumscribed nationalist character of the various fascisms plays no small role in the distinction between the two as well.

  20. I don’t know, ‘feets. You ever been a crossword clue? Not an easy gig to get, that there is FAME!

  21. No way is he getting the nomination.

    But it’s his turn!

    <Don Rickles shrug>

  22. that’s a good point really

    but the whole idea of fame makes me queasy I don’t even do facebook

  23. True Sdferr. I think that is the component our commie in chief and his crew hold on to while imagining this time will be different. I think they have no trouble believing a global government is possible, and the ducks are lining up nicely…

  24. Another way to think about Karl Rove (and a way I hope would actually better fit with his own view) is to note the distinction between political science and political philosophy, or the difference in simpler terms, of a professional campaign consultant (one who believes solely in the worth of mathematical applications to politics, i.e., as “science” it’s all about the measurements or metrics as the newspeak has it) and a statesman (as the highest form of politician, i.e. a politician of the character of a Churchill or Reagan or Thatcher).

    Rove is a child of political science (which in this respect, isn’t unlike Freudian psychology insofar as it doesn’t grasp the full range of the phenomena it nominally seeks to understand, but is on the contrary content to write off (simply ignore) any attempt to understand what it cannot measure). Of course to the extent that the scientific students of politics would make a claim to have understood the truths about their subject, yet fail continuously to attain reproducible results by means of their study, the adequacy of their science should necessarily be drawn into question.

  25. I think the science in political science should be in quote marks.

  26. In a sense my aim is to make the quote marks present in every appearance of the term political science, whether the quote marks are printed or not. Only then would the message have been received, I reckon.

  27. I generally pronounce “political science” thusly: puh-li-ti-cal vu-du.
    And I speak as a degree holder in that shit.
