The latest in the Repo conga line for nomination seems to be Governor Christie of New Jersey, though he keeps saying he's not saying. No wait, he is saying. No wait, he's not.
Chris Christie is a big ass. This is the guy who wants to cut state workers' salaries. Who wants to cut pensions and not let people retire when they've put in their decades of work. Who wants workers to continue taking unpaid days off but still carry their workload. This guy, in short, wants to gut the working class, the middle class and anyone else he can gut. But apparently he feeds his own gut pretty damn well.
I can't help but think what my Dad's and uncles' reactions would be to this list of psychos running for the Repo side. Romney the "tie the dog to the top of the car" guy; Palin, who couldn't even finish her one term at governor; Bachmann, Paul, Pawlenty, Santorum, Huntsman, Perry and -Jesus Christ!- Gingrich? Gingrich? Are you freakin kidding me? This is the Best of what Repos have? Holy crap! My Dad would be furious. Uncle Bert would turn in his card. Uncle Les would give up on voting altogether. And Nana? Nana would be on the phone 24/7 bitching at every Repo Club she could find about how bad this is making the party look They're all lucky Nana's gone.
It's a shame, really. They all make Obama look like a genius.
