(Christie) What Club Did You Think You Joined?

It's a bit amusing watching Peter King and Christie freak out because the assholes in their asshole club are acting like assholes. And it's too much to ask for them to generalize their current situation - sometimes people are down and need help, even without a hurricane.

1. authoritarians often treat each other like dirt. they think the right response is to rise to the top

usually by stepping on your buddies on the way.

5. I like to call authoritarians, bullies. They live to pick on those weaker than themselves.

And will quickly turn on each other if weakness is shown. The Repukes bullies have turned on Christie and King and now their constituents are suffering. I hope other constituents take notice. This is what happens when you hitch your star to a bully.

2. Christie KNEW GOP was soul-less when he joined them, campaigned FOR them, pushed their policies,

and would be siding with them today if this storm had hit the west coast instead of HIS coast.

3. Christie is a proud Republican simply playing his part in the GOP bluster show.

Here is some material from his RNC Keynote 4 months ago about how he sees the two Parties:

"Here's what we believe as Republicans and what they believe as Democrats.
We believe in telling hard working families the truth about our country's fiscal realities. Telling them what they already know the math of federal spending doesn't add up.

They believe the American people are content to live the lie with them.

We believe that if we tell the people the truth they will act bigger than the pettiness of Washington, D.C.
We believe it's possible to forge bipartisan compromise and stand up for conservative principles.
It's the power of our ideas, not of our rhetoric, that attracts people to our Party.

It's time to end this era of absentee leadership in the Oval Office and send real leaders to the White House.

America needs Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan and we need them right now."

4. I think I will from now on refer to the GOP as the Asshole Club.

And yeah, I mean, it's great that they are standing up for the people of their states in this time of crisis, but there are those who were in crisis before the hurricane and by signing up with the Repugs, you are basically saying that you want to ignore those people at best.

6. He joined the hair club for men, because he wants to be president (and also, a client).
