Just spitballing here

But would anyone really be surprised if it turns out that, at some level, Ann Coulter was in the loop during BridgeGate?

Rebranding!

  1. Chris Christie’s truth is that he’s an Asshole-American. Any day now he’ll admit to having sex with one of those orange221construction barrels and quit politics to become an Episcopal priest.

  2. I wouldn’t mind him being an Asshole American if he were capable of visiting a Cabela’s or Bass Pro without coming off like JFnK buying a hunt’n license.

  3. In the saddle?

  4. I fucking hate New Jersey. I wish we could lump Jersey, the New Yawkahs and all the Massholes together into a country called East California, and sanction the shit out of it for being economically unfair, racist at its core, and a lot like France. Like we do with Iran.

  5. “I’m responsible for everything that happens in this government. … I didn’t know anything about it, but I’m responsible,” said Christie. “For every person who acts in this government, I am ultimately responsible. So if you want to hear that, I’m happy to say that, because it’s true. … That’s different obviously than direct responsibility, but ultimate responsibility, sure.”

    this is your frontrunner for the republican nomination

  6. Happy speaks the truf.

  7. We love it when Christie pushes back against the labor unions and when he gives hell to the press, but do any of us doubt that he’ll also use those guns against the TEA Party instead of the Democrats?

    We don’t need another Spite House.

  8. Is it wrong that I just don’t care? This just seems like yet another distraction from all of Obama’s f@ck-ups that also – bonus points! – targets a Republican that some establishment types were touting as a frontrunner in 2016.

    Who does this kerfuffle benefit?

  9. The Bridge Too Far debacle is already the Water Under the Bridge story to anyone who is keeping score.

  10. They will get many more news cycles out of the “Bridge” story as and when needed. They have the FBI angle and a lawsuit angle. They must avoid the Hillary/Gore angle however. It wouldn’t be helpful.

    And never let the Teddy name come anywhere near a “Bridge” story either.

  11. Too late, geoffb. Doing my part for the cause, I posted the Chappaquiddick story in all its tragic horror on FB yesterday to contrast with my lib friends who were crowing about the traffic jam.

  12. Ted Kennedy’s bumper sticker: “My other car is underwater.”

  13. Ted Kennedy’s bumper sticker: “My other car is underwater.”

    If only he drove a Volkswagen.

  14. Fuck Christie, but let’s see some coverage of these scandals, not to mention the failure of the House leadership to name a Special Prosecutor for Benghazi/F&F/IRS…

  15. Great list, Drum. Also add to it these (some repeats, ‘natch):
    http://pjmedia.com/zombie/2012/11/02/why-was-there-no-october-surprise/

    Sorry, not gonna dance to the MSM’s “oh noes, a scandal!11!” tune.
    This is – wait for it – a local news story about petty state politics (unlike what they actually called local news/not newsworthy – the Gosnell trial).

  16. What’s the over-under on the Wahn scolding us during the SOTU? Will he be bitch-slapped into making an actual accounting and laying out an agenda by his “team” or not?

    My money is on him making an ass of himself.

  17. “Over-under”, as in “number of times” or “at what minute during the speech will he first do so”?

  18. I’m going with what minute in the speech. I think he’ll manage about 8 minutes before he can’t stop himself.

  19. Leigh, he’s going to spread all sorts of “Obamacare is a success” stats and give his usual, “I will not rest until….[laundry list of everything he still wants, including immigration reform, income equality, blah, blah, blah].
    While claiming to simultaneously focus like a laser on jobs, of course. If only those damn Republicans would just let him already.

  20. It’s going to be a chore to watch, that’s for sure.

    Now, who will M’chelle have sit with her? Who is the cause de jour?

  21. My money is on him making an ass of himself.

    “Making”…?

  22. Now, who will M’chelle have sit with her?

    I’m betting it isn’t gonna be the Danish Prime Minister…

  23. I’d bet Robin Roberts since she checks so many boxes: minority, cancer survivor, just came out. Probably also some random military family since that’s one of her pet causes. The Obamas like their citizen props!

  24. Methinks Libby will be proven prophetic because Lady Michbeth and her gang are so pathetic.

  25. What’s the over-under on the Wahn scolding us during the SOTU? Will he be bitch-slapped into making an actual accounting and laying out an agenda by his “team” or not?

    If Boehner actually had a pair, word would have been sent to the White House that from here on, the House will follow historical precedent and require that the State of the Union be sent as a letter:

    In 1801, Thomas Jefferson discontinued the practice of delivering the address in person, regarding it as too monarchical (similar to the Speech from the Throne). Instead, the address was written and then sent to Congress to be read by a clerk until 1913 when Woodrow Wilson re-established the practice despite some initial controversy.

  26. - But wait, theres more. Little Debbie, speaking twit-ese through her box hat poodle interpreter clesred everything up today. Has a mind like a steel hinge on a toilet seat, that woman:

    CNN’s Don Lemon made Fox News proud on Thursday when he asked DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz about the “difference” between New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie not knowing his top aides shut down a highway, and President Barack Obama claiming not to know about issues surrounding the NSA and Obamacare.

    When Wasserman-Schultz, a Florida Congresswoman, answered Lemon’s question, she said the difference is that the issues Obama claimed to be unaware of were policy issues, while Christie is denying a scandal.

    “A scandal that leads right to his office,” Wasserman-Schultz said. “In which his staff — and possibly him — exacted political retribution and retaliation for a Democratic mayor in Fort Lee [NJ] refusing to endorse him in his reelection.”

    - The correct response would have been “Weeeellll yeah, I know Bumblefuck is a total dickhead, but I was talking about Christie.”

    - Ohhh the ir0ny, it burns.

  27. I wonder how far the gray matter would have sprayed if Christie had merely replied, “At this point, what difference does it make?”

  28. Woodrow Wilson re-established the practice despite some initial controversy.

    For Obama, that’s an endorsement of a live SOTU.

  29. Woodrow Wilson re-established the practice despite some initial controversy.

    Another Progressive innovation! /sarc

  30. And never let the Teddy name come anywhere near a “Bridge” story either.

    I figure Teddy Bridgewater will still go pretty high in the draft. Probably to the Washington Potomac Redskins.
