Sarah Palin promised him a BJ if he won

I'd heard the guy was a douchenozzle, but this confirms it.

Wow.  Regardless of the politics and your party affiliation, that's flunking funny.  Dude's all like, "Unhand me wench".

What is Christopher Street?

And he looks like a real winner. In a sarcastic usage of the word.

I bet this guy is a real "hoot " at parties

He's mad because the wife dressed his daughters in the dining room drapes and used the money he gave her for dresses on Twinkies.   "Begone bovine biatch and take all eight of your chins with you!"

The dude  never had a chance in hell of winning.

I'm fine with Chris Christie's call to hold a special election after the death of Lautenberg. But here in NJ the Republicans are pissed that Christie didn't exercise his right to appoint an interim senator, which could have created an incumbent Republican senator in NJ when the next regular election is scheduled.

Sometimes comfort from a loved one elicits an overpowering emotion. He probably realized he was about to cry in public.

Christie is shrewd for a Fat Guy....he didn't want to be on the same ballot as Booker because he knows it would hurt his chances of being the first Fat-Ass president in over 100 years!

The Country has lost what could have been the greatest ninja Senator.
 
2013-10-17 10:17:19 PM
The final frame of that GIF depresses me.

That's the face of a woman who has understood for a while that her husband doesn't love her.

She still tries, but she's not important.

The fun part about all this is there are several conservatives in NJ (ie Paul Mulshine) who are blaming Lonegan's loss on the shutdown.

Because if the shutdown hadn't happened, Lonegan would have won.
 
2013-10-17 10:19:16 PM
OMG.  I just laughed for a minute straight on seeing that, Christ, what an asshole.  Maybe he's gay and hates being touched by women?

Thing is, while that move might have made him good with instate Republicans, moderates and Dems would have hated him for it.  And it would have cost him his reelection.

This is the instinctual reaction of Republican males to the touch of a woman. Now, if it had been the sweet caress of a young, supple, rosy-cheeked young boy....

Even the pretty girl on the left is shocked by it. You can see her fake smile snap back over her face after the "WTF?" wears off.

/this is what happens when you marry a powerful man for his money.

Not sure what your question has to do with the article. The only Christopher Street I know of was a kid I went to school with from k to 10 until he moved away to have a better chance of being noticed by a college for his basketball skills. It paid off he was signed by the university of Iowa. He was an outstanding player but was killed tragically his junior year when his car got hit by a snow plow at an intersection.

Hell, I'll say it anyway. Christ, what an asshole.

The star of this show is the woman in the background (daughter?).  Watch her smile from the first frame to the last.

This is not a surprise to those who know him.

The first casualty of the republican shutdown.

excellent!

Benevolent Misanthrope: Wow.  That looked even worse than I expected.


I watched the full video, and she kept it up for a full 20 seconds before he did the brush off.  I'm not saying he shouldn't have stopped and just whispered "please stop that" instead of the brush off, ESPECIALLY since he's a damn politician.  It was obviously distracting to him and he probably had a handler gesticulating wildly in front of him that her hand was showing up on camera.

I think I've only done something like that once to my wife - we were meeting with the funeral home director for my sister's burial and she started petting my head like I was a cat because it was such an extremely stressful event for me and for her.  We were going over details about how to handle her body and all I could think was "why is she petting me like I'm a goddamn cat?"  I'm sure she thought she was helping, but it just made everything worse because it made it harder to focus on the task at hand, and even worse it made me think she was deliberately drawing my attention to her instead of the funeral director.

I didn't go for the physical brush off, I just snapped "stop that!" and she didn't talk to me for the rest of the day.

Maybe it comes down to physical touching as a show of support.  When my wife is down she wants some contact, but if I'm in a mood I'd just like to be left alone, or at the very least not touched until I process whatever the hell is bugging me.  I think men are just shades above your typical animal, and if an animal is hurting it withdraws and attacks anything that comes near it.

HOWEVER, there is always the blowjob exception.  You'll note that wasn't in play here ;)

Anyway, I'm glad there weren't cameras around when I snapped at my wife.  Because I'd live on in the internet like this asshole.

He shoulda just decked her.

That depends on where he's being caressed, and I don't mean in New Jersey! Hey-ohhh!
 
2013-10-17 10:34:34 PM
If he treats his wife like that, imagine how he would treat the country.
 
2013-10-17 10:34:46 PM
Why am I single and these douches have loving wives?

/looks in mirror
//oh, right.

Yep.  Got to wonder if he beats the crap out of her when they got home.

SpdrJay: He shoulda just decked her.


It looked like he was going to. The brush-off was bad enough, but the glare made it much worse. His reaction was that of someone being manhandled in a crowd, not a man being comforted by the woman he loves.

I'm sure Lsherm was right, and there was much more to it. But... Man. That was bad.
 
2013-10-17 10:39:27 PM
Per the comments he's also blind, which then makes a lot more sense and comes off a lot less douchey.
 
2013-10-17 10:40:01 PM
Glad he didn't win.  You don't want a weak pimp hand in office.  She was still standing instead of crying on the floor.

/kidding.
 
2013-10-17 10:42:15 PM
Well, your average Republican HAS demonstrated he's uncomfortable with warmth, empathy and kindness. (Unless he's expressing it to someone richer than he is, in which case it's called a Tax Cut or Tax Break.)

Don't buy that.  He knew he was surrounded by family members AND on camera?  What did he think, Cory Booker snuck up on him?

Lsherm: Anyway, I'm glad there weren't cameras around when I snapped at my wife.  Because I'd live on in the internet like this asshole.


I'm going to say there is a bit of an exception for funerals.  At least I hope so, because I essentially did the same to my wife at my Grandmother's funeral.  Same general scenario, talking with a funeral director, the whole bit.

Still felt like a heel long after she forgot about it.  Still do.  I hope she has forgotten about it...

Satanic_Hamster: Don't buy that. He knew he was surrounded by family members AND on camera? What did he think, Cory Booker snuck up on him?


uh, if he is actually blind, and if he has been for a while, he probably doesn't fully/really comprehend how his behavior "looks" on camera.

That said, his daughter is pretty cute.  Was she adopted?

He is.  It's an open secret here in north Jersey.
