QoTD: GOP Exceptionalism Edition

Governor Christie is on the first leg of a 3-week political trip to support fellow GOP candidates. He didn’t waste much time getting his growl on a heckler in the front row of an event he was doing in California for Meg Whitman. The heckler made a not-nice remark about Whitman and the Trenton Thunder came down off the stage and got in the heckler’s face:

Hey, listen. You know what. You want to yell, yell at me,” Christie said, shutting down Buck as Christie’s bodyguards calmly but quickly approached the two men. “It’s people who raise their voices and yell and scream like you who are dividing this country. We’re here to bring this country together.

So glad to know that the GOP agenda was to bring the country together. I guess you can do anything as long as you say your intentions are good. Because I thought the GOP agenda was to make sure rich folks stayed cushy, ship jobs overseas and skirt your corporate taxes, start wars that make no sense, and foist your religious “values” on other people. Thanks for clearing that up.

    “I’m a uniter, not a divider”.

    The real fact is that Assembly Speaker Oliver nailed him and defined his tenure as Governor – “Leaders unite and build consensus. They do not divide and conquer and

    create enemies of the people who teach our children and protect our


    Unfortunately, douches like Joe Scarborough keep praising him like he is the second coming of Reagan and ignor his track record and detractors, this allows Christie to take his bullshit on the road and sell more weapons of mass destruction.
