One of the most delightful developments of the past week has been seeing New Jersey Governor Chris Christie get evicted from the Republican Party for the crime of being respectful and grateful (in the wake of a hurricane that devastated his state) to the president of the United States, who is a known black person. (Christie is one of the last remaining Republicans who operate in actual reality — for instance, he believes global warming is real and we need to shut the fuck about the terrifying Musliny threat — even though he does spend an awful lot of time yelling at teachers.) First he went on Fox & Friends and blew their minds when he was all “nah mang, don’t got time for Mitt Romney’s ass,” and then everybody flipped out! Rush Limbaugh called him a big fat idiot! IT. WAS. GLORIOUS. And according to Christie, Romney was all like, “Indeed, fellow, I quite understand that the well-being of your state comes before the needs of our politickal campaign,” but Romney’s staffers are another (more butthurt) story entirely!
Bring the pain, HuffPo:
“I told Governor Romney at that time that if the storm landed as predicted that it was going to be catastrophic to New Jersey and unprecedented,” Christie said. “I said to him, ‘Listen, Mitt, if this storm hits the way I think it’s going to, I’m off the campaign trail from here to Election Day.’ And he said to me, ‘Chris, of course. That’s what you have to do. Do your job, don’t worry about me. I’ll take care of things.’ So all this other noise, I think, is coming from know-nothing, disgruntled Romney staffers who, you know, don’t like the fact that I said nice things about the President of the United States. Well, that’s too bad for them.”
“He told me last Sunday night that he expected no other political travel or help from me over the course of the remaining time between then and the election, if in fact the storm hit the way it was projected,” Christie continued. “If it missed us, I would have been happy to go out on the road and help him. But it didn’t.”
Politico reported earlier this week that Romney insiders were unhappy with Christie’s praise for Obama, which one described as “over the top.”
A source inside Romney’s campaign also told Jon Ward that Christie should have attended a rally in Morrisville, Pa., 20 minutes from Trenton, the New Jersey capital.
“You can’t tell me he couldn’t have gone over there for a night rally,” the source told Ward.
You know what, “source”? Shut the fuck up with your waaaah. Nobody likes a whiny bitch.
