brokebackWhat did Chris Christie tell Barack Obama, while they canoodled on the phone for seemingly hours? “You hang up.” “No, you hang up.” “You hang up first,” they both repeated fucking endlessly, until they fell asleep with their Blackberries cradled under their drooling, open mouths. And what did he tell Mitt Romney?

Nothing. He sent him an email.

This has been your five-o’clock Schadenfreude.

        true…they once had an episode of "Unsolved Mysteries" trying to locate Christy's junk…Robert Stack just couldn't fucking find it and gave up. Leonard Nimoy is convening a "History's Mysteries" search for it…but once that search turns up nothing, Geraldo is going to use drills and explosives ala Al Capone's vault. Eventually it'll be declared likely dead and missing like Jimmy Hoffa forcing Christy to appear on an episode of "American Justice" talking about the saga of how he ate his dick to death.

    Obama should appoint Christie to the position of Secretary of Sammiches.

      Good idea.

      That is if the Dept of Sammitches mission is to ERADICATE all sammiches.

    • Jerri

      That is exactly what I told my husband yesterday! "Mark my words, it'll be a Christie/Rubio 2016 GOP ticket. MARK THEM!" I said.

      Luckily, I was really tired and hungover so if I'm wrong I'll have a (lame) excuse to weasel out of that declaration.

      • bobbert

        I'm not so sure. A lot will depend on how things go in Jersey during the next couple of years. And Rubio is gonna have to actually DO something to offset the whole "Well, my folks didn't exactly flee Castro" thing.

        • Jerri

          That's true. It is mercifully a long way off after all.

    • horsedreamer_1

      I am thinking the race to replace LAMEDUCK Obama already began with Rmoney's concession. Too, I have Jon Cornyn, Sam Brownback, Terry Branstead, Jindal, Nathan Deal, Bob Corker, Mitch Daniels, Rick Snyder, & Jeff Flake as likely to appear at a Reagan Library forum sometime around Presidents Day 2013. (Of those, I think Brownback, Jindal, Corker, Daniels, & Snyder are the only ones likely to get traction.) &, let's not forget, a darkhorse: I see Ted Cruz doing the Iowa dinner party circuit even before he's sworn in as Senator. He's Cuban, like Rubio, but won in a state where most Latinos are other than Cuban. So, bonus.

      … &, sure, Cruz 2016 would bring with it as much federal experience as Obama 2008, but, y' know, Republican. So, OK.

      • Redgyal

        Cruz is a good idea. Two things to look for however. First, how many Latinos are willing to vote against their own interests? Just like other ignoring groups they don't tolerate fakes. Second, how will the image of a Latino president play on a national scale right after an African American president? My guess is that there will be some Americans who will see that as "they're taking over" and vote against him. Because in some minds the whole minority wining the election thing was an accident. To that end, the Democratic party has a better chance running another minority candidate than the Republican Party. It fits their image.

    • Negropolis

      I really thinkg Rubio is damaged goods, even before his name was brought up during the GOP primaries as a possible VP pick.

      • 102415

        Doesn't he have some kind of money stealing problem?

    ollowing his resounding defeat by Democrat Tammy Duckworth Tuesday, Tea Party-affiliated U.S. Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) is considering what his post-Congress life might entail.
    In an interview with the Daily Herald published Wednesday, the congressman did not rule out a 2014 gubernatorial run as he suggested that "Democrats have ruined" the state of Illinois while weak Republican leadership has "allowed them to." He also left the door open to the interviewer's suggestion that he consider becoming a television pundit.

        You know, even if Obama had lost the election, he probably would have been just have classy & grateful to his staff.

    • mille derps

      I guess David Axelrod must've been wearing an onion on his belt, as used to be the fashion.

      It even had me tearing up a bit…

    • viennawoods13

      Damn, I love this man.

  • LibrarianX

    Kudos to Governor Christie for doing your job, but Mr. President? Seriously – you can do better.

  • EllenStranger

    I dunno. That was quite the political hit. I'm thinking a spherical sort of Nucky Thompson.

  • sati_demise

    oh gad, what a tub o' lard. can he even find his private bits under all that?

  • GeorgiaBurning

    This is a perfect time for Christie and what-passes-for-moderate Repubs to engineer a complete split in their party. The nut jobs want to drive off the cliff going more conservative; time to jump off the bus and let them. It wouldn't take much for a Pro-Rape-Life-War-Job Creation party to form up and leave the Republicans if Limbaugh and Karl Rove can make money off it. Christie is sneaky enough to have thought about it.

  • Sassomatic

    They had crushes on each other the whole time! I knew one day these two would get together.

  • And Obama is saying, "Stick with me, and I'll introduce you to the Boss."

  • Blueb4sinrise

    Okay. A heads- up for everybody.
    I just got word from U.N. HQ that starting next week your local trash pickup and recycling services will be dropping off 300 gallon sky blue containers

    at all residences [with logo of course] . Everyone is asked [sic] to put all their guns and ammunition in these containers for pick-up. If you think you might need a larger container, please call 202-863-8500 [former RNC ] and request one.

    Your co-operation is appreciated.

  • Negropolis

    Their bitter, bitter tears…they sustain me. More, MORE.

    I love the smell of imploding right-wing political parties in the morning; it smells like freedom.

    I think we're going to need a bigger copter, though.

  • Negropolis

    You know what gets me? I keep hearing that Republicans from the base up to the highest peaks of the party didn't see this coming. This absolutely blows my mind. Usually, any base is shocked at a loss, but we're hearing that Romney hadn't even written a concession speech and his staff was "shellshocked". They really are insane. I mean, for as much as we though Kerry had a great chance of winning, we also knew that it was possible that he could lose. Most challengers always realize they have a chance at not unseating an incumbent, which is why this complete denial of the polls by the GOP has taken be aback, a bit.

    • viennawoods13

      Well, and the whole no concession speech thing just goes to show that these people didn't watch West Wing. They shoulda listened to Toby

      • BerkeleyBear

        Well, Josh took it to another level in season 7 – I think they wound up with 8 different flavors of victory/concession before they were done.

        • viennawoods13

          I thought was Janeane Garafalo. Josh was too busy with Donna on Erection- ahem, Election Day.

    • to be fair, the power of prayer isn't as strong as nate silver's witchery.

      (but yeah, me too. that's the most shocking part of this election. stunning. and not at all reassuring…)

      • Negropolis

        What with all of his gah and blah magic, and all.

        I mean, I knew we we were dealing with folks whose straircases stopped halfway up the groundfloor, but it's still pretty shocking to witness it when it happens.

    • bikerlaureate

      Well, the Hoarse White Prophet did have the most incompetent campaign staff EVAR (or the most traitorously subversive).

      • NellCote71

        Perfectly capped off with the President-elect Romney transition team website. Delusion isn't just a river in Egypt.

    • bobbert

      Dude, it was THEIR TIME, doncha know?

      • Negropolis

        It's always their time…except when it's not, poor bastards.

    • Their entire business model is based on denial of reality / wishful thinking / what Orwell called "collective solipsism". It just crashed.

    • BoroPrimorac

      Imagine Karl Rove is a stripper and his donors are a bunch of dudes at a strip joint. Does Karl the stripper tell his donors to get the fuck out of the champagne room while their wallets are wide open?

      Rove didn't get rich by being stupid. He played those donors like a piano because he knows more about politics than they do.

      • Negropolis

        I still don't get it. He worked way harder than he had to. Karl whored himself before he even had to in your analogy. Not that I'm complaining, but a smart operative would have offered hope that Romney could pull it out, not an assurance so ridiculous that it's not to be believed. But, I guess he calculated that the people he was speaking too were dumber than him, so he sold them the moon and threw Pluto on for free.

    • BadKitty904

      I'm seeing a lot of chatter on this online: Was Rove in it to win or to make a profit?

      • Negropolis

        They were talking about this on Morning Joe, today. David Frum made very clear that there are some cons and hucksters out there, and someone on the panel pressed him to name one – impying Rover – and he said that there were more than he could count.

        The few intelligent Republicans left know that the Music Man just came through town. Too bad that no one said shit for the GOP when it mattered. The GOP is a fucking mess with a strange mix of genuine as hell ideologues, corporatists funders, and snake-oils salespeople who will say anything for their personal bottomline. It is probably not even accurate to call it a party; it's a fascist cult with sycophants around the edges.

    • BlueStateLibel

      Yeah, insane. Even Willard was reportedly "shell shocked." So no one on his staff could read polls? Nate Silver wasn't the only one forecasting an unlikely Mitt win, so were many other political scientists.

      • Negropolis

        Even Republican-as-hell Rasmussen Reports had got it back down to a 1 or 2 point race in the last few days. In fact, in the last few weeks, only Ras and Gallup had Romney up by anything over two points, and even other Republicans were saying that those two were outliers. I could understand if Romney had consistently led in the last month or two, but he never did. It just goes to show the total disconnect from reality.

      • AutomaticPilot

        See, there's the trouble right there: "scientists."

    Governor Crisco is launching a line of swim trunks made from a circus tent.

    • BaldarTFlagass

      "Nice suit, Chris. Is that a Saville Row?"
      "No. Omar the Tent Maker."

  • i have had the most delightful evening catching up on the day's butthurt and the wonketteria's commentary.

    seriously, this post-election season is like christmas, my birthday and opening night all roled into one and i hope it never ends.

  • 102415

    Christie, now give us back the damn tunnel you owe us.

    • Hate to say it, since I agree with your critique, but it may have been a boon that work on that tunnel had not begun prior to 12 feet of storm surge…

      • 102415

        *sigh*Okay, too soon.
        But I did get into one today and went to Brooklyn and came back again.

  • Pancho Villa

    Why email when a quick txt would do just fine.

  • BadKitty904

    DAY THREE: Still no black helicopters or FEMA stormtroopers in sight…

  • viennawoods13

    Ot, but I just watched Jon's Wednesday night show. It is hard to decide whom I love more, Jon or Obama. DAMN what a take-down of Fucks News.

  • James Michael Curley

    Lament not o ye Wonketteers fearing a long aimless trek through the non Presidential News Wilderness.

    Marco (Polo) Rubio is here to save us.
    Marco Rubio headed to Iowa. Has 2016 already started?

    • Negropolis

      And, lo! A swarthy Cuban came from the South, riding an abandoned Austrian Warmblood with much purpose to the amberfields of a mystical, white northland called Iowa…

    • BadKitty904

      Speaking as a native Floridano, I'm told that Rubi-con has *plenty* of skeletons still neatly tucked waaaay in the back of his closet. If he runs, it should get real…interesting.

      • Negropolis

        What kind of skeletons? Like, fabulous skeletons, or skeletons with dubious ethics?

        • James Michael Curley

          Skeletons that once had large handfuls of cash – including one story about him being the bag man for the "Brooks Brothers Riot".

          • 102415

            Ah, that's what I was trying to remember.

  • YerMa

    Ya know… any time I have a moment of feeling bad for taking such JOY in their misery, some asshole starts with the fucking "lazy people want free shit" meme they're running with.

    FUCK them.

    The invigorated frothing hate and contempt for the poor (especially minorities) has gotten worse since Tuesday and they've gone totally off the rails. I can't wrap my head around it, especially when people who claim to follow Christ are such narcissistic, hateful assholes who genuinely seem to want poor people to suffer and die. It's insane. And I agree with the Rude Pundit who said:

    "Let's kick these fuckers while they're down. Let's degrade them and mock them for not understanding that voters actually give a damn about the nation, unlike the Republican Party. Let's make them feel every ache, every lump, because if we don't, they are going to attempt, again and again, to get up and gut us, like every cliched serial killer in every cheap straight-to-video bullshit flick. You don't walk away when the murderer just looks dead. You cut off his head so that you know he is."

  • Mahousu

    This is almost too much Schaden for Freude:

    Mitt Romney’s staffers reportedly got an unpleasant shock directly after learning their candidate did not, as expected, win the election on Tuesday night and snag the role of President — one disgruntled campaigner from the Romney’s team said campaign staff credit cards were canceled before they could even pay for their sad cab rides home.

    • BadKitty904

      Who loves ya, baby?

  • BaldarTFlagass

    Well, it be Friday now. This has been one of the most wonderful weeks in recent memory, going back at least to the Supreme's Obamacare decision; hell, maybe even back to November 2008.

    But if this "Walking on Sunshine" earworm doesn't leave my head soon, I may lose my mind.

  • James Michael Curley

    Ran into one of those slightly clueless Republican operatives in town on election day who was proclaiming that the high turnout signaled a Romney win based on her sampling of one polling district in one ward in one town that had only 380 voters in it and at an hour before closing only 155 had turned out. As I explained that to her, since I try to be kind to the intellectually disadvantaged, her return response was that if Obama wins its because Christie blew it with meeting with Obama after Hurricane Sandy. I guess she took her over extended lunch hour to watch Fox News as I understand they started this mantra on election day.

  • neiltheblaze

    Why are all the headlines on the main page suddenly written in Klingon?

  • halfmoon01

    Chris Christie looks so desperate here!

  • ttommyunger

    Fortunately, no one (including Chris) has been able to locate Chiritie's dick in years, so it's all platonic.

  • larrykat

    I'm starting to wonder what kind of a fucking genius Christie really is… I mean think about all of this in relation to 2016. This guy might be our time's Lex Luthor or something.
