CHRIS CHRISTIE  2:19 pm October 4, 2011

Vulgar Corporate Pig Officially Not Running For GOP Nomination

by Kirsten Boyd Johnson

Look for your corpse-of-Reaganite messiah elsewhere, teabagger turds.Well, that’s it! The Republicans’ “Jersey Jesus” of capitalism, gigantic space blob Chris Christie,¬†announced all super-formal like that he will not run for President despite a year’s worth of weepy pleas from the club of Republican insider weiners who begged him with platters of diamond-encrusted donuts and filthy Kochsucker cash to rescue them from the nightmarishly incompetent field of wax-figure knobgoblins stacking the current GOP presidential field. This is Christie’s “definitive” response following a few weeks of tense, feverish piddling from the media over whether he would join the race, which means we should be reading another “Will Christie run even though he is fat?” headline in a couple weeks.

From NJ.com:

At a jammed Statehouse news conference, Gov. Chris Christie announced today that he would not seek the Republican nomination for president in 2012.

“What I felt was the right decision remains the right decision,” Christie said. “Today is not my time.

“I will not abandon my commitment to New Jersey. I will fix a broken New Jersey. I’m proud of the work we’ve done, but I know I’m not nearly done.”

Yeah, there are a few well-paid teachers and small kids with state health insurance still miraculously wandering around New Jersey in 2011. HIS WORK IS NOT DONE. [NJ.com]

The good news is we won't have to buy a bigger Air Force One to fly him around in.

memzilla October 4, 2011 at 2:29 pm

And he is three times the man I am… literally.

Air Force 3X.

Ugh. Please do not mention XXX and Christie in the same thread.

SorosBot October 4, 2011 at 3:04 pm

Well he's already publicly fucked all of New Jersey's teachers and school children.

Tundra Grifter October 4, 2011 at 3:13 pm

Air Force One is plenty big enough.

If it makes two trips.

chicken_thief October 4, 2011 at 3:48 pm

Christie needs no plane – just fill the fucker with helium.

Ayn Rand Paul Tard October 4, 2011 at 4:51 pm

But if he were President deficits wouldn't matter so he could buy a fleet of the biggest, most expensive, pimped out Lockheeds with cracked open Social Security and Medicare funds.

Poindexter718 October 4, 2011 at 2:21 pm

"You won't have Christie to roll around anymore."

Gratuitous World October 4, 2011 at 2:31 pm

ha. we'll never get to ask, "Who will answer the phone at 3am…when Christie calls for pizza?!?!"

Barb October 4, 2011 at 2:22 pm

"At a jammed Statehouse news conference….." Governor Christie stood alone in the room.

ifthethunderdontgetya October 4, 2011 at 2:40 pm

And now Obama can't run as the Anti-Christie.

Fiendishly clever as always, G.O.P.!

I of course first read this as "At a jammed Steakhouse news conference…," which made total sense.

He can't run. Seriously. Waddle for President would of been his best.

Instead of "throwing her hat into the ring," Snooki will be throwing her bump-it into a hot tub. And you better vote for her or The Situation will throw you through a plate glass window.

It's bad news for the Rethuglican fund-raiser catering industry, that's for sure.

I'm sure they're actually relieved. They could never get enough margin to cover the food bills at a Christie fundraiser.

ManchuCandidate October 4, 2011 at 2:27 pm

I can see Christie rolling, waddling and Rascal riding, but never running unless it was to the nearest Countrytime Buffet.

Oh right, running for preznit.

James Michael Curley October 4, 2011 at 11:15 pm

They closed down our Countrytime Buffet in my area of NJ. Don't know, never went there. It was replaced by a Texas Roadhouse which sounds even less appealing as, having road a motorcycle in Texas for months, I am always reminded of Texas Roadkill.

"I will fix a broken New Jersey." What, did he sit on it?

Lionel[redacted]Esq October 4, 2011 at 2:28 pm

Further proof that Gov. Christie is mortally afraid of anything that involves the word "running."

Ok I held my toung long enough on this so.

The clincher in his decision came when he was told his helicopter could not land directly on the stages he would speak from. Apparently there was to be "walking" from the landing area.

After that recent earthquake, do we really want Governor Christie Creme overloading the seaward side of that fault?

If there was a 'Salamination' he would run for sure. or at least walk briskly.

elviouslyqueer October 4, 2011 at 2:31 pm

"I've made this commitment to my state," the governor said. "I'm just not prepared to walk away.

Translation: I've got a sweet, sweet deal here in Joisey, and besides that, I'm physically incapable of doing anything so plebeian as "walking." That's why I've got those State Police helicopters on permanent retainer. Duh.

LesBontemps October 4, 2011 at 2:32 pm

"Much as I woud like to, I simply cannot eat all of the current field of candidates. At least not in one sitting."

kissawookiee October 4, 2011 at 2:32 pm

I was so hoping for a Christie/Palin ticket, if only for the inevitable performance art that would ensue every time she felt compelled to eye-poke Michelle Obama by stuffing ever more more more french fries into his gullet and then waxing poetic about the emissions, for freedom.

"My job in New Jersey is my passion. New Jersey, whether you like it or not, you're stuck with me."
Poor New Jersey. So far from God, so close to Chris Christie…

It's the gravitational force. Like with a black hole, Jersey can't escape.

Chichikovovich October 4, 2011 at 3:02 pm

And remember, New Jerseyites, especially any who may be of Christie size yourselves, don't get too close: remember that gravitational attraction varies inversely with the *square* of the distance.

Lucidamente1 October 4, 2011 at 2:35 pm

Governor Christie added, "I want to spend more time with my family's dinner."

Callyson October 4, 2011 at 2:36 pm

Also:
He once jokingly suggested that he would have to commit suicide to convince people to stop asking him to run.
Not necessary, Governor, but if you insist…

Monsieur_Grumpe October 4, 2011 at 2:37 pm

Am I the only one whose is disappointed that he's not running? He takes vulgar loud mouth to new level that we haven’t yet seen at the debates. I could see him at a debate holding a bucket of KFC with extra chicken skin talking with his mouth full on how stupid everyone around him is and why he won’t answer any questions about his children going to private schools will he cuts funding for public schools.

Drumthwacket the Governor's mansion, or Dumfucket as it has been known since Christie moved in, has some rare three legged Louis Something or other chairs which, if Christie sat on them would have to be surgically removed.

Mumbletypeg October 4, 2011 at 2:41 pm

Just in case y'all remember, or forgot but would like to remember, an astutely rendered observation of this corpulent Behemoth before he dunders back into lesser office:

"Christie is driven around in the front passenger seat of a Cadillac Escalade. Last time I saw him get out of it I swear he makes the same sound that jellied cranberry sauce makes when it finally slides out of the can. His seat is mounted on a swivel track and looks like it is mounted with no leg room in the rear. (Sorry about that, mentioning rear and Christie in the same post.)"

Thanking you still, James Michael Curely, and by way of association Rileywaggs, for his post about the maggot-riddled chair-fused bottom-dweller freak, which generated multiple Christie references.

With Rick Perry now running alongside the pizza man, Mittens must be feeling pretty good about now. It is amazing what guys named Rick can do in a campaign to run it into the ditch simply by being themselves. Santorum will never be associated with anything other than anal sex leftovers and Perry with the hunting camp and being tenderhearted (I know, the baggers actually consider perry soft on immigration?) to the brown folks. It is funny to see the fundies shitting their collective pants at the thought of a Mormon leader. But then again, it is also kind of scary from the other side of the intellectual spectrum as well.

DemonicRage October 4, 2011 at 2:59 pm

In an alternate Universe somewhere, Governor Christie is standing at the back door of the White House as the Obamas trudge out, and in his hand is a 5 Napkins hamburger with cheese and bacon on it. Fat is dripping down out of the hamburger, and he is sneering as his eyes lock with Michelle's.

You had me at "5 Napkins Hamburger." Pray tell, where do I find that?

Sounds good…

Rotundo_ October 4, 2011 at 5:27 pm

He emits a low, long, growling fart which gains in volume and frequency as it breaks free from the prison of Christie's perianal region where it trumpets like Satan's own Gabriel sounding a hellhorn. In a torrent of foul wind, laced with scatol, sulphur dioxide and rancid grease the newly elected president smiles, bits of burger and bacon trapped helplessly between teeth and says "Gimme da keys and get da fuck outta here!" and walks through the door, falling through the floor to his death and making it the shortest presidency to date. The End!!!!11!!!

fuflans October 4, 2011 at 3:25 pm

Are we sure the Cristie hasn't eaten the corpse- of-reaganite messiah?

mumbly_joe October 4, 2011 at 3:28 pm

In other news, the iPhone 5 also announced that it wasn't going to run for President, today.

This is bad news for both Apple fans, and for Apple Pie fans. A la mode, also too.

hilacious October 4, 2011 at 3:28 pm

Cakes are done. People are finished. You of all people should know this, Christie.

SockBunny October 4, 2011 at 3:31 pm

Rats. No Presidential Hoveround.

weejee October 4, 2011 at 3:34 pm

With Christie it would take a forklift – a big one at that.

Gleem_McShineys October 4, 2011 at 5:17 pm

How awesome would that have been — Forklift One.

I was thinking more along the lines of a Super-sized Pope-mobile.

So… is that his way of announcing his nuclear weapons program?

SayItWithWookies October 4, 2011 at 3:36 pm

Republicans are so disappointed — Christie was the last remaining potential candidate they could fall swoonily in love with and then three weeks later accuse of being a filthy liberal RINO. This was like the cattle-call phase of American Idol, and from here on out it gets steadily more on-message and top-40 sounding and just plain tedious. For the next fourteen months.

Vulgar Corporate Pig Officially Not Running For GOP Nomination

So they have no candidates at all, now?

BaldarTFlagass October 4, 2011 at 3:40 pm

Maitre D: And finally, monsieur, a wafer-thin mint.

Mr Christie: No.

Maitre D: Oh sir! It's only a tiny little thin one.

Mr Christie: No. Fuck off – I'm full… [Belches]

Maitre D: Oh sir… it's only *wafer* thin.

Mr Christie: Look – I couldn't eat another thing. I'm absolutely
stuffed. Bugger off.

Maitre D: Oh sir, just… just *one*…

Mr Christie: Oh all right. Just one.

Maitre D: Just the one, sir… voila… bon appetit…

*takes cover*

meatlofer October 4, 2011 at 3:46 pm

If he was a foot taller he'd be round.

Biel_ze_Bubba October 4, 2011 at 3:47 pm

Still several months to locate that "generic Republican" that the voters say they prefer over Obama.

OT, but oh dear God, holy shit, fuck, someone, help me, help me, I never thought this day would come, Ioh, god someone, I am not kidding, I am really seriously telling the truth, this just happened, just this minute, I went out to get the mail, and, and, oh fucking fuckety fuck fuck fuck, there was a letter, . . . .

From the AARP

prommie October 4, 2011 at 4:14 pm

Do I get to drink earlier, or more excessively, on this day of passage to a different time of life?

proudgrampa October 4, 2011 at 4:34 pm

Welcome to the Dark Side.

"Relax, have a cigar, make yourself at home. Hell is full of high court
judges, failed saints. We've got Cardinals, Archbishops, barristers,
certified accountants, music critics, they're all here. You're not alone.
You're never alone, not here you're not. OK break's over."

The answer is both: start drinking earlier and drink more. It's a rite of passage.

PalinzADummy October 4, 2011 at 7:53 pm

Oh, fuck, yeah. I celebrated (ha) by getting untranslatably drunk and fucking my brains out. You should too.

Rosie_Scenario October 4, 2011 at 4:36 pm

You didn't open the envelope did you? I received my AARP welcome letter a few years back and it, and every subsequent missive, has been thrown promptly into the trash unopended. Partly vanity and part anger (still) at AARP lobbying Dubya for the (unpaid for) prescription drug bill.

prommie October 4, 2011 at 4:42 pm

There's a CARD in it, I didn't open it, but it says right on it, "card inside." Those fuckers, its still 6 weeks away, how do they know?

GeorgiaBurning October 4, 2011 at 3:50 pm

The teatards hate "big government" and Christie is a big governor. It wouldn't have worked.

FakaktaSouth October 4, 2011 at 3:52 pm

Welp, I know he sucks butt for teachers and labor. I know he is a bully. I know he is a fat ass that likes to use helicopters and limos for legs, buuuuut, he was the least scary to me, the least OH MY GOD WHAT HAVE WE DONE???? and now its back to nothing but Willard, Longshot "Herb" and The Hair. Good Lord.

prommie October 4, 2011 at 4:13 pm

Yeah, as long as you are rich like him, he's the bee's knees. But its documented he has been meeting with the Kochs, yup, its that brazen, these GOP lick-spittles actually appear before the Koch's on command and receive their marching orders in person. Mittens might not be worse than Christie, mittens is nearly as rich as the Kochs, they can't buy him, and hell, he passed a health care plan, hell, he even lived in taxachusetts, voluntarily. Sure, he's talking like a troglodyte right now, he has to to win over the fucktard and pigfucker vote in the primaries, but he could be ok. On the other hand, he's a fucking mormon, God, noone will be hired to work for the government who isn't a mormon (it happens to every company thats taken over by a mormon).

FakaktaSouth October 4, 2011 at 4:23 pm

My fear of Mitt is if he gets elected, it's gonna have to be in a big old Republican sweep all around and the guy truly seems to be WHATEVER you want him to be. He's like the worst prostitute fantasy ever. He just doesn't seem to have any true moral compass or opinions. (I REEEEEALLY don't believe this will happen. I go to sleep at night chanting 70/30…70/30…Barack will win 70/30)
That's a good point about the money though. No one needs to buy him, but the dude never met a thought someone else didn't give him.

SenileAgitation October 4, 2011 at 3:54 pm

With all the primary shuffling going on re: FL and SC and filing deadline for NH in less then 30 days the fat fuck didn't have time for a proper run whether he wanted to run or not. But he will remain a potent presence in conservative butter dishes for countless calories to come, as his recent call for all right-thinking Americans to join him at the Occupy a Peter Lugar's Banquette protest indicates.

proudgrampa October 4, 2011 at 4:36 pm

He could always get drafted, I suppose.

AnAmericanInTO October 4, 2011 at 4:09 pm

God help me, I though that sentence started "At a jammed STEAK house news conference…" and I didn't think anything about it. Of course, he'd have a press conference at a steak house.

chicken_thief October 4, 2011 at 4:16 pm

Damn it. I was so looking forward to all the irony laden speeches as he talked about "shared sacrifice", "belt tightening", and how "one size doesn't fit all". Maybe One L can bilk the government tit for staff salaries long enough to keep the GOP Primaries interesting.

MrFizzy October 4, 2011 at 4:20 pm

Given that the country pays for the prez's wardrobe, I think him not running could be worth a few hundred thousand a year in suit material.

PalinzADummy October 4, 2011 at 8:01 pm

Just think of the MILLIONS we'll save in not having to remodel the entire fucking WH so he can sit on the fucking terlets without breaking them. Or getting stuck in the bathtub.

crybabyboehner October 4, 2011 at 4:25 pm

We're gonna need a bigger helicopter.

GregComlish October 4, 2011 at 4:37 pm

Hey guys, can we watch it with the fat jokes? A lot of people here are struggling with their own weight and I just want to be sensitive to that. I know obesity is a serious health problem and emblematic of America's inability to deal with it's own ballooning issues, but the pervasive anti-fat attitudes really do present an extra challenge to our obese population, many of whom suffer from chronically low self-esteem and doubt their ability to make positive changes in their life.

Also maybe we could focus our attention on substantive criticism, like the myriad scandals and dysfunction that have plagued NJ ever since Christie came in to office. For instance, maybe we could make a joke about when Christie single-handedly scuttled a vital and hard-won deal for a train tunnel connecting NYC with NJ mere weeks before the construction would begin, retarding his state's economic growth for decades to come and punishing all the working people in NYC. Something like that.

proudgrampa October 4, 2011 at 4:44 pm

"Substantive criticism??"

Greg, this is Wonkette.

Rotundo_ October 4, 2011 at 5:45 pm

Nice thought, but people are gonna hate on fat folks for a long long time. It is the last safe place where one can treat someone like shit with no pangs of conscience or worries about being thought ill of. If you *are* going to be an even mildly overweight person in public life you know what you are getting into and what will happen. For the rest of us fat folks we just feel the disgust and move on, we keep trying and maybe we might wind up looking somewhat normal someday, but probably not. For those of you who haven't had the experience of being looked at with total revulsion it actually is an experience not to be missed. You learn who the good people are without having to go to a lot of work. That much being said, since I am "one of them" I'll take a shot at someone like Christie in a heartbeat since all is fair in politics these days.

bebecca2298 October 5, 2011 at 9:51 am

Exactly, his weight is as insignificant as skin color and there are so many substantive things for which Christie can be attacked.

Negropolis October 5, 2011 at 9:48 pm

Chris Christie's so fat his blood has the consistency of gravy.

Gleem_McShineys October 4, 2011 at 4:54 pm

"Come on Mr. Christie, the presidency is wafer-thin!"

Jukesgrrl October 4, 2011 at 4:57 pm

In a Manhattan penthouse a transvestite is racing to the bathroom to wipe off his make-up, put on a business suit, and become Rudy Giuliani again. He wants it, people. He wants it enough to send his best friends to prison and dress like a man.

JackObin October 4, 2011 at 5:04 pm

I'm not running for preznit. Now someone go get me a Big Mac, large fries and a Diet Coke, for I haven't eaten in two hours. I know I'm going to have a heart attack, but I have socialized medical care.

NYNYNYjr October 4, 2011 at 5:07 pm

Antispandex October 4, 2011 at 5:25 pm

You know being huge (or, yuge, as it is pronounced in Jersey), has not stopped other men from running for President, or even winning. I think he just fears a loss of high fat foods if he is forced to move to Washington…but I have only been to Washington once, so that is just a theory.

rocktonsam October 4, 2011 at 6:46 pm

and Amerika waits for Amerikas dick tease to announce shes and her family are considering all offers, strike that , all angles, no, whats best for the cuntry.

BZ1 October 4, 2011 at 8:18 pm

… ya listenin', Lou Sarah?

Schmannnity October 4, 2011 at 10:29 pm

The final tragedy in Christie's refusal and possible election is the annual Army doctor physical and the horror show report followed by the suggestion by the doctors that he consider losing some weight.

Negropolis October 5, 2011 at 2:26 am

Well, this means that Trump is getting back in.

Can you even imagine Christie at Mass during Communion? Hey, leave some of the host for the rest of us.

ttommyunger October 5, 2011 at 6:49 am

"…won't abandon my commitment to New Jersey." Sarah Palin is saying, "Whaaaa?"

Tundra Grifter October 5, 2011 at 4:12 pm

According to Sheer InSannity (there's a reliable source!) he told Gov. Christie that Ann Coulter is his biggest fan.

I think InSannity got that one backwards.

baconzgood October 4, 2011 at 3:41 pm

I'd bite that guy's ear off fry it up, eat it on a baconz sandwich, then shit it into his other ear. HE'S GOT NUTHIN ON MY SHOUTING ABILITY!!!!

PalinzADummy October 4, 2011 at 7:10 pm
