"Words can't begin to express my disappointment. What Bridget did is anathema to everything I stand for, and, I thought that Bridget shared those values. I am heartbroken to discovery that she did not. And so, it is with great sadness that I must now eat her."

thurstonxhowell: bronyaur1: That said, enough with the fat jokes already - they just damage a lot of good arguments about why he is a shiat.

You try thinking of this situation, picturing Christie in your head, and making a joke. 9 times out of 10, you've got a fat joke. The 10th time, it's the Godfather. I've been racking my brain and that's all I got.

That is, if you don't count "Bridgegate". Which is a farking joke, but I don't know that everyone who says it realizes that.


My favorite one so far is The Portly Authority.

Somehow I don't think the government shutdown went down like this:

From: POTUS
To: Secretary of the Interior
-Time for some closed national parks.

From: Secretary of the Interior
To: POTUS
-I feel badly about the retired vets.

From: POTUS
To: Secretary of the Interior

Assembly Deputy Speaker and Transportation Committee Chair John Wisniewski (D) --  "We have here finally a witness that will further testify to Chris Christie's rule over a criminal empire that controls all of the bridges in this state and perhaps in other states. This witness has had no buffer between himself and Chris Christie. He can corroborate our charges on enough counts for this committee to recommend charges of corruption and perjury against Chris Christie. Senator."

Your lose grasp of the English language makes it very difficult to figure out what you might be trying to say.

"off", study it out.

OK, now we're getting somewhere. Vets were forced off an open mall. Which vets? When? What mall? This is the sort of information it is customary to provide for the people with whom you are trying to communicate.

If he's talking about the shutdown, he's wrong about both the idea that it was open and that vets were forced off. That's only my best guess as to what he might be referencing, though.


Veterinarians were forced off of an "open" shopping mall in Cherry Hill, NJ because it was "closed" to people that treat animals for a living. You should follow the news more closely.

He's saying he thought it was a traffic study, because Baroni told him it was a traffic study.  Not saying it was a traffic study, just saying that's what he thought it was at the time.

what the hells the point of helping folks in high places if they don't know you are helping them?  oh yea they want you to do it in a way they don't go down when you get busted.....  but htey know wink wink
