Gee, what a shocker. No one could have ever predicted that Chris Christie would be a mean-tempered, revengeful bully who would misuse the powers of office.
Wouldn’t it be ironic if Christie’s next job involved moving traffic cones?
Nice bridge you have there mayor; it would be a shame if it should suffer an acute blockage if you do not endorse me. Godfather Christie.
The state of Oklahoma brought it on themselves when they wrote the law which set this system up. They were trying to avoid a First Amendment lawsuit. What they got was the Law of Unintended Consequences.
5. From Morning Plum: GOP has another chance to declare independence from Tea Party by Greg Sargent; The-Historian (15 likes)
“Republicans are now professing openness to the general idea of extending this lifeline — having moved away from their ideological objections to it — and are now claiming concern over how to pay for it.”
Aaah yes, how to pay for prescription drug plan, tax cuts, two wars of choice ….. the hypocrisy is astounding.
