If Christie wants to make a good Presidential campaing come to fruition, build good PR like we have here.

How does he feel about funding the NIH though? If you want to get real money directed toward research, you have to support government funding. Otherwise the money will just go to pharmaceuticals that want to make a profit off of keeping people on medication indefinitely.

Gee, I bet Chris Christie's never thought of that. Say, who's bankrolling Chris Christie's upcoming presidential attempt, ya think?

consider he only did this just to get out of paying $100 to research

Well, sure. Christie is much better insulated.

Why do you expect the GOP to do what will actually help rather than whats easy and gets them PR?

So, you either donate real money to ALS research, or drench yourself with ice water?   That seems difficult.   Isn't there a "Like" button I can press instead?   Or pray?  Some other useless gesture than actually helping?

No, that just dumped a lot of water on his presidential aspirations.

He'll just eat the whole thing.

Christie what an icehole.

Speaking of research, at this very moment, Christie is across the street from me touring a research institute with the Governor of Alabama (the guy who looks like Mr. Burns of the Simpsons.)  No ice water dumped on him so far.

"This hyah meddy-kal equipment looks mighty sophistimacated, Guv'nah Christie. Now, what end do you pray in to make the demons who caused the illness to go away?"

They told him it was a bucket of chicken wings.

Actually, the AL gov is a former dermatologist.  So he'd probably just give you some ointment to put on it.

/and then he'd commence t'prayin'.

Why is John Oliver on that tour with him?

Thank you Mods I'm glad we're discussing another important topic I for one am tired of all the Mideast crap going on. Each and every topic today is spot on!

That's actually a pretty good Christie.

Article is useless without a picture of Christie with ice buckets pouring over his head.

*googles*

Found the vid.

His kids stood on a table and dumped a smallish bucket of water (could not see ice) over him while he made a little speech in a tee shirt and some pink shorts.

Pretty sure the ALS people would have preferred the cash.

Read the headline as chris christie willing to dump ice water on barack obama's head.
 
2014-08-13 04:53:39 PM  
That's great. He's still a shiatty conservative governor who likes to pretend he's a moderate.

Christie has head blubber that will insulate him.
 
2014-08-14 06:30:19 PM  
On a typical 100+F summer afternoon in New Jersey, I'd probably enjoy a bucket of ice water being dumped on me.   If I were Christie's size, it'd need to be a daily maintenance event to keep me from melting into a puddle of molten tallow.
