    Bet $1 that Christie weenie's out. If he picks a Dem, he'll never be Prez even after reincarnation.

    I agree. I do note that his positions on gun rights were abhorent and his "Lautenberg Amendment" was a truly disgusting bit of retroactive idiocy

    I agree - I didn't want to speak ill of the man in his death since in my view his faults were all political/policy in nature and not directly harmful to others.

    Tim-
    See, that's the kind of petty, childish, partisan bullsh!t that is literally destroying this country.

    Not only did NJ elect a Democrat for that seat/term but they've elected a Democrat for the Class 2 seat every election since 1979 (and a Democrat for the Class 1 seat every election since 1982).

    I think the will of the people of NJ (aka: the people who are actually fvcking represented by that seat) is pretty darn clear.

    How could anyone fault any governor, or hold it against him in any way, for respecting the will of the people of the state he governs when it comes to their representation in government?

    I'll tell you how. You'd have to be a fvckwit. Simple as that. Would you fault Christie for appointing a Democrat to fill Lautenberg's seat? If yes, go look in the mirror. What you'll see is a fvckwit.

    It pretty much totally undermines the bedrock principal of democracy/representative republicanisim.

    Selfish, self-absorbed fvckwits such as these are what's destroying America. And we have them in both partys by the tens of millions.

    And for the record, I didn't vote for Lautenberg, in fact I've voted against both Lautenberg and Menendez in every election either has ever stood for, in fact I've voted against Democrats for Congress in NJ every election since 1990.

    But I respect the "idea" of whhat American is supposed to be more than I feel that I'm a special little flower who always deserves to get my own way by hook or by crook.
