Chris Christie is so far gone, he needs Sarah Palin to tell him what to do. And – get this – she’s actually correct. Palin via TPM (via Inside Edition):
“I just don’t know all the information out there, but it’s hard to be the CEO of an organization and not know what the closest people to you are up to. I know when I was mayor and manager of this city and then governor of the state, certainly you know what your top aides are up to.”
Palin is as empty track suit, the sum total of cheery platitudes, right-wing exceptionalism, hairdo and glasses. A low-information voter that chillingly could have been a heartbeat away. A fine Amerikin.
Yet, she actually calls it right here. Now, I don’t buy Christie’s story that his staff betrayed him, though he’s my governor too, and for that reason I hope that’s what happened. But in the unlikely scenario that his staff operated beyond his control, that would be his own poor management. He’s so busy trying to get the next job that he’s not doing the one he bent the Democratic Party into pretzel shapes to be re-elected to do. He’s a showboat, more invested in the attention he gets (strutting around in “town halls,” calling people names, diverting federal funds for Sandy ads promoting himself etc) than governing intelligently (mismanaging Sandy housing money, transparency problems with the Sandy “charity” run by Mary Pat Christie, undermining public education etc). But right now, what he is, is flailing.
