‘Double Down’ Campaign Book: Mitt Romney Made Fun Of Chris Christie For Being Big Gross Fatty

There’s a new book out about the 2012 election that made Barack Obama dictator for life (again) and exiled Mitt Romney to the wolf-stalked beaches of Southern California. It’s called “Double Down,” probably after the KFC bacon and cheese and two hunks of fried chicken instead of bread sandwich, because like the sandwich it appeals to a small group of antisocial gluttons while nauseating everyone else. “Double Down” is by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, the guys who wrote “Game Change,” a book that got made into a movie about Sarah Palin and how she is terrible. LOL DIDN’T READ is what we said to that, and we won’t be reading this one either, because the liberal media has already done it for us. Here’s a taste: “I’m tired of you people!!!” the book quotes Christie as saying. “Leave me the [expletive] alone!!!!” Christie said this to some Romney lackey after Christie was criticized for making his GOP convention speech all about himself. You want more? Yeah, yeah you do. You want it bad. Read more on ‘Double Down’ Campaign Book: Mitt Romney Made Fun Of Chris Christie For Being Big Gross Fatty…

‘Country First’ John McCain Sticks To Story: Sarah Palin Was ‘Best-Qualified’ Candidate

So did you all like Game Change? Well Sen. John McCain simply did not care for it, despite having not seen it, from what he heard! Speaking to Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday, he reiterated the cold FACT that half-term Alaska governor Sarah Palin was the best-qualified candidate for vice president on his team of mavericks, mostly because of her ass. But Chris Wallace pushed back! What would you say to campaign strategist Steve Schmidt, who babbled to anyone who’d listen that Palin “had trouble with the truth,” henghhhhh, John McCain? Henghhhhh? McCain then dropped a positively chilling, “I regret that he would make such a statement.” In other news, Steve Schmidt was found murdered in his bed last night by person or persons unknown.

Open Thread For HBO’s Politics Movie ‘Palin & McCain Lose An Election’

Tonight: HBO is debuting its Hollywood motion picture about how John McCain waddled over to the Google machine sometime in the summer of 2008 to find a “hot political babe” to run the country after he croaked during his first 10 minutes as president. He settled on an Alaskan lady who shot guns, which was the entirety of his research. She turned out to be an idiot, and she continues to shame and grift the nation to this very day. Here is your open thread for the Wolf “Like Pauline Kael But Good” Blitzer-approved GAME CHANGE, starting at 9, which is basically now. Ol’ Walnuts has been asleep on his Ambien since 6 p.m., so he won’t be watching. ALSO: Here’s an unreadable Wonkette Archives post from 2008 about all these bickering McCain campaign characters, if you’d like to read it.

Wolf Attacks Theater: A Special BLITZER’S BLOG Review Of ‘Game Change’

Your Wonkette woke up at 3 a.m. this morning and has been refreshing CNN’s Situation Room blog every 9 seconds without interruption since, longing for that glorious moment of release when the page would load and there, sitting atop the earlier, lesser posts, would be a fresh new entry to BLITZER’S BLOG offering Wolf Blitzer’s take on HBO’s new film, Game Change. The adaptation of John Heilemann and Mark Halperin’s collection of nutty and occasionally factual anecdotes from the 2008 McCain campaign debuts tomorrow night on HBO, and we’ve been holding off our decision on whether to watch it until reading BLITZER’S BLOG’s take. So here, at long last, is the verdict of Wolf Blitzer’s ghostwriter from the local kindergarten work-study program: Movie picture good not bad.

Thune Un-Presidential-Candidately Honest About Presidential Ambitions

John Thune is thinking about running for president. Of course he is. But no, really, he actually admits he is! That is not allowed. Every potential presidential candidate is supposed to be coy. Anything else should be illegal and punishable by death. Still, he isn’t sure if he will run. “It’s a different scenario maybe than some of the other candidates who don’t have a job,” he says. Haha, yeah, everyone in your party is a loser who makes a living going on Fox News and writing a book for their PAC to buy copies of. This man is stealing our joke talking points. Anyway, all Republicans think he is a total hottie and should not listen to his dumb wife, who “read Game Change” and doesn’t want him to do it.

Forgotten Political Book Now Free With Two Packs of Camel Lights

Our dearly departed Juli Weiner sends this New York street scene of a newsstand that doesn’t show nearly enough respect to TIME magazine’s “The Note” blog-to-book, Game Change. Come on, can’t we put this important work somewhere better than, say, next to the pimp/old man cigars? Shouldn’t it be on a pedestal of sorts? Maybe by those little crack pipes disguised as “plastic roses” or whatever? [Thanks Juli we miss you!] Read more on Forgotten Political Book Now Free With Two Packs of Camel Lights…

Harry Reid Can Stay, FOR NOW, Says Powerless Mitch McConnell, Who Doesn’t Care

Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has said a brave “the fuck I care” to his friends, Some Republicans, who are demanding that McConnell order Mark Halperin’s PR rep. Harry Reid to step down as Senate Majority Leader. “‘I think that is an issue for the Democratic conference,’ McConnell said at morning press conference at the Capitol. When pressed by CNN as to whether that means he does not agree with Republicans calling for Reid to be ousted, McConnell simple repeated, ‘I think that’s an issue for the Democratic conference.'” [CNN Political Ticker] Read more on Harry Reid Can Stay, FOR NOW, Says Powerless Mitch McConnell, Who Doesn’t Care…
