A new poll shows Chris Christie actually gaining support with one group of voters:

Here’s some good news for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie! His support in national polls is way, way up among an important constituency: People who love assholes. Obviously, not a lot of voters self-identify as “people who love assholes,” but pollsters have a special technical term for this small but terribly influential demographic group. They call them “core Republicans.”

A new Wall Street Journal/NBC poll shows that Gov. Christie is now viewed less favorably by all voters, and even by Republican voters, than he was just a few short months ago, dropping from 41 percent positive feelings among all voters last June to 22 percent positive feelings last month. But every cloud of scandal has a silver lining:

While the poll showed a drop in the positive feelings toward New Jersey Gov. Christie overall and a drop in positive feelings even among Republicans, Mr. Christie’s numbers actually improved among more strongly partisan Core Republicans. Among Core Republicans, only 32% had positive feelings about Mr. Christie in October. In January, that number climbed to 42%.

Christie wants to spend campaign funds on lawyer's but he only has $13,000 left.

One of the reasons Christie and his staff are stalling on subpoenas, is they have run out of money for legal work. They can't even raise the money as donations to his re-election fund because he spent the entire limit (except for $13,000).

"Christie's campaign on Monday sought to exceed New Jersey's election spending cap to pay for lawyers dealing with subpoenas stemming from the scandal."

"The campaign has already spent all but $13,000 of the more than the $12.2 million limit for Christie’s re-election. Without more money, the campaign said it would not be able to answer the subpoenas."


Poor Chris Christie...kicked out of his luxury box for the Super Bowl!

" No suite for Gov. Christie at Super Bowl 2014, despite previous boasts

Over the past few weeks, the governor boasted about how he would get to hand-pick two dozen VIPS for a sweet reward: the chance to enjoy the biggest sporting event in the country with him in his luxury suite at MetLife Stadium.

When asked who would control the guest list for the governor’s box at the Super Bowl while co-hosting WFAN’s Boomer and Carton sports radio show on Aug. 26, Christie said: ‘You’re looking at him, baby.’

But as it turns out, the governor’s box will be out of bounds for the governor on game day."


Christie's party is cancelled!

The Gov was snowed out! http://nbcpolitics.nbcnews.com/_news/2014/01/21/22384666-christies-inauguration-party-canceled-due-to-weather?lite

If Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno has been under investigation for pension fraud.....

for the past two years, why is it being hidden from us? Why didn't the voters know about this before they elected this boardwalk mafia back into office? How did Christie manage to shut the press up about this?


Put on your party hats! Christie's inauguration party is scheduled for Wednesday and.....

It's being held in New York!

This is going to be sooooo much fun! A big party on Ellis Island, New York. I hope he takes a helicopter to avoid all of the nasty traffic. What kind of asshat would have his inaugural party in another state?

I was looking through the Reich wing blogs for info on the date and place of the party when I found this proud description on Breitbart. It was posted in December when Team Christie was still full of hubris and no one seemed to think it would be a big problem.

This is going to be the best, worst party ever!

On edit...apparently NJ claims half of the island but the grand hall is on the New York side! It would be like the President going to Canada for his inaugural ball.

Well, let's see....

I could go on for days but I'll give you my two favorite religious angels of death from our times.

Pope Ratzenberg and his instructions (in the name of his religion) to millions and millions of Catholics around the world not to wear condoms. It was especially horrific and deadly because he was directing the terrible lie that condoms would cause AIDS to the people of Africa. How many hundreds of thousands of people believed him and how many spread AIDS, how many babies were born with it, how many people died because of the sick belief that this murderer was speaking god's words on Earth? Do I hold the people who followed and supported him responsible? Yes. I believe they share in some part of the blame. They gave him his power.
Mother Theresa and her cult of anti-contraceptionists peddling her dangerous religious beliefs in countries where children live on garbage heaps and babies starve, because her god told her that it's a sin to take the pill or use a condom. How many children starved to death because of her? How many women were consigned to lives of poverty? This is a woman who kept contraceptives out of the hands of entire countries. Yet her religion made her a saint because she opened a few orphanages and played the saintly nun to the hilt in the press.
Maybe there is an Atheist out there causing thousands or millions of deaths in the name of and because of his rational beliefs. You'll have to tell me who he is

The look on Barbara Buono's face says "Is it wrong that I'm smiling???"

I'm watching "All In" with Chris Hayes and she looks like the cat who ate the cream. Good for her...who deserves to enjoy this more?
