If there was ever an argument for term limits, this guy was it. Good riddance to bad rubbish. This is not to say he won’t still be voting. He was is a Democrat, after all. He did build himself a nice train station, though.
Now comes the fun – guessing who Governor Christie will likely appoint to fill in until the next election. Candidates include:
- Mrs. Frank Lautenberg
- Cory Booker [honest to God]
- Head of the NJ teacher’s union [this would be a pay cut for him]
- Eric Holder
I give up. I was trying to be funny but there was nothing funny about shattered faith in your state’s governor. The jolly photo-op camaraderie with Obama not only contributed to Obama’s reelection but also has created A LOT of questions about party principles and loyalty. Granted, those actions resulted in a boatload of money headed into NJ but its Democrat money and payback – you may have heard – is a bitch. And now there’s a chance to pay back by appointing a Democrat bitch to fill FL’s seat. This is the watershed moment for Christie.
Neither is there anything funny about the recently departed loaded diaper. He is being touted all over the internet now as an advocate for women’s health where “women’s health” is code for all abortion all the time with no room for dissenting opinion. He is famously remembered as pro-claiming that pro-life people do not deserve the freedoms in the Constitution. I would imagine that his senility led him to leak that tactic ahead of the party schedule for that particular assault on the citizenry who dare to differ. How soon until the petition to rename your fabulous train station starts?
I fully recognize none of this is of any interest at all outside of NJ.
