Governor Chris Christie Thinks We Should Track Immigrants Like FedEx Packages

Perhaps New Jersey Governor and 2016 Republican Presidential candidate Chris Christie, is trying to sound more like Donald Trump in his audaciousness, because his most recent doozie is really something else.
At an event in New Hampshire on Saturday afternoon, Christie actually said:
“We let people come to this country with visas and the minute…

Chris Christie: Businesses Shouldn’t Hide Behind “Religious Liberty” To Discriminate

GOP presidential candidate Chris Christie broke ranks with other Republicans yesterday at the Iowa State Fair on the issue of religious liberty. While speaking at the Des Moines Register’s Presidential Soapbox, Christie was asked whether or not businesses should be allowed to discriminate against the LGBT community based on religious beliefs. Christie responded:
“We have

Watch: Chris Christie Wants To Punch National Teachers Union In The Face

In an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, presidential hopeful Chris Christie was reminded that he once said he’d punch bullies in the face.
I suppose Tapper decided to reopen that wound again and ask Christie about his thoughts this time around as a presidential hopeful:
“At the national level, who deserves a punch in the…

57 Percent Of GOP Voters Would Make Christianity The National Religion

A survey of Republican Primary voters released this week and conducted by Public Policy Polling provides some interesting results and insight into the minds of GOP voters.
The poll determined that Scott “Scabby” Walker is currently the lead potential 2016 candidate, followed, oddly, by Dr. Ben Carson.

Horrible, Delusional Parents Sue New Jersey For The Right To “Convert” Their Gay Son Straight

In today’s depressing news, a couple is suing New Jersey Governor Chris Christie over the state’s recent ban on gay conversion therapy. Christie signed the bill into law this August, which prevents therapists from attempting to “convert” gay teenagers into being straight. Because it’s complete and utter quack psychology bullshit.

But! These horrible…

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie Issues Ban On Ex-Gay Therapy

Chris Christie may not have done much bill-signing on Friday, but the same can’t be said for today. The AP reports that the governor is set to sign a bill that will prevent licensed therapists from trying to turn gay teens straight. New Jersey will join California as the second state to outlaw “gay conversion therapy.” Christie has already…

Prince Hot Ginge Hits Up The Jersey Shore

Gym, tan and laundry was not on the agenda — but Prince Harry did hit up the Mantoloking, New Jersey boardwalk on his United States tour to view damage by Superstorm Sandy and play boardwalk games with Governor Chris Christie and some kiddies.
What a good sport. We all know he would have much preferred…

5 Things To Know About The First Night Of The Republican National Convention

Political theater like the Republican and Democratic National Conventions are a big swamp of blerrgghhh to me. My opinion is that it’s all just a dog-and-pony show and not really the best way to get to know a candidate, their viewpoints, or their cronies at all.

But yes, it’s still a big to-do.

NJ Gov. Chris Christie Makes Sexist Blowjob Joke Campaigning For Mitt Romney

When I heard yesterday that New Jersey’s Governor Chris Christie made a blowjob joke while campaigning for Mitt Romney, I thought it just sounded, at worst, crude. (And embarrassing for Romney’s squeaky-clean Mormon image, although that’s another story.)  Christie was rallying for Romney at a campaign stop in Exeter, New Hampshire, when some women started chanting…

Evening Quickies: Chris Christie Rocks A Pink Tie

Chris Christie is the governor of New Jersey and this morning he denied once again that he is seeking the Republican nomination for president. (Except he didn’t actually say that, which I think means wink-wink-nudge-nudge he’s not ready to announce yet.) But anyway, enough about politics — let’s talk about that tie. It’s pink.
