Frankly, My Dear Mitt, He Doesn’t Give a Damn

Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie:

“So I have to give the president great credit. He’s been on the phone with me three times in the last 24 hours. He’s been very attentive, and anything that I’ve asked for, he’s gotten to me. So, I thank the president publicly for that. He’s done — as far as I’m concerned — a great job for New Jersey.” 

Asked about touring storm damage with Mitt, Christie said this to the Three Stooges on Fox and Friends:

“I have no idea, nor am I the least bit concerned or interested.  I’ve got a job to do here in New Jersey that’s much bigger than presidential politics and I could [sic] care less about any of that stuff.  I’ve got 2.4 million people out of power, I’ve got devastation on the shore, I’ve got floods in the northern part of my state. If you think right now I give a damn about presidential politics then you don’t know me.”

 

So, Donald, Would You Call This Something Big?

Donald Trump told the Three Stooges on “Fox and Friends” this morning that he has “Something very, very big concerning the president of the United States.  It’s going to be very big.  I know one thing — you will cover it in a very big fashion.”

We can expect this revelation on Wednesday.

However “big” it is, we know it can’t be bigger than his ego.

Can too much money make you insane, a la Howard Hughes?

Gretchen Carlson Just Plays Dumb for “the Folks”

So Gretchen Carlson isn’t actually a dumb blonde.  She just plays one on TV.   I knew she was a former Miss America, but I didn’t know she graduated from Stanford.  With honors!  Another fun fact — Michele Bachmann was her babysitter.  So be careful who you leave your children with.

I learned this from today’s NYT article about Fox and Friends* that also had this sad quote:

“Critics of the show include not just Democrats and comedy outlets like ‘Saturday Night Live,’ but reporters, producers and executives at Fox.  Ask them what they think privately, and they will often roll their eyes and mention some embarrassing mishap, like the time Steve Doocy…insisted in 2007 that the president was raised Muslim.”

Yet these people claim to love their country.
