Christie's In!










Washington: Depending on one's perspective the New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is either a tell-it-like-it-is straight talker or a brash and abrasive bully. 

Either way he is now also a Republican presidential candidate. "There is one thing you will know for sure: I say what I mean and I mean what I say," he told supporters during a 20 minute speech in the gym of his former high school.







The Hatter opened his eyes very wide on hearing this; but all he said was, "Why is a raven like a writing-desk?"

"Come, we shall have some fun now!" thought Alice. "I'm glad they've begun asking riddles. — I believe I can guess that," she added aloud.


"Do you mean that you think you can find out the answer to it?" said the March Hare.


"Exactly so," said Alice. "Then you should say what you mean," the March Hare went on. "I do," Alice hastily replied; "at least--at least I mean what I say--that's the same thing, you know."


"Not the same thing a bit!" said the Hatter. "You might just as well say that 'I see what I eat' is the same thing as 'I eat what I see'!"


"You might just as well say," added the March Hare, "that 'I like what I get' is the same thing as 'I get what I like'!"


"You might just as well say," added the Dormouse, who seemed to be talking in his sleep, "that 'I breathe when I sleep' is the same thing as 'I sleep when I breathe'!" (Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Chapter 7)








"But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked. 


"Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad." 


"How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice. 


"You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn't have come here." (Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Chapter 6)

Ted's Excellent Bromance With The Donald





Ted "I never miss an opportunity to make myself look foolish" Cruz fell all over himself praising The Donald for speaking the truth about those Messicans -- y'know being criminals and rapists and all that. (To be fair, The Donald did say he loves Messicans after he maligned the entire country and everyone living in it. That made his slander HO-kay.  Plus he didn't  mean just Mexico, he included all  Latin Americans who come over our borders.  And China!  So there's that.)  And isn't Donald's brazen audacity of dopiness exactly the quality certain people on the right (Hello New Hampshire Republicans!)  think is what we Americans want in the person who will represent us -- all of us-- on the world's stage. Donald tells it like it is:   He's cocky, he's bold in his relentless vilification of cultural groups, his hair is stylish, if dead animals on one's skull is your thing; he's been married three times and in bankruptcy four.  What a treasure trove for the TeaPublicans!  Lucky duckies!




Cruz:  "I like Donald Trump. I think he’s terrific, I think he’s brash, I think he speaks the truth,  And I think NBC is engaging in political correctness that is silly and that is wrong.  He has a way of speaking that gets attention. And I credit him for focusing on an issue that needs to be focused on.”


You tell 'em Ted!


Donald's way of speaking certainly does get attention, but in this case it's not the sort of attention that a candidate for the presidency wants that will put him in "the zone."



From Addicting Information:


Trump seemed to be touched by Cruz’s defense, taking time of calling people “haters” and “losers” on Twitter to thank the senator. It was almost as if just a few months ago, Trump wasn’t trying to drum up support for the idea that Cruz himself is an ineligible alien. 

 “He’s got a hurdle that nobody else seems to have at this moment. It’s a hurdle and somebody could certainly look at it very seriously. He was born in Canada,” Trump said in an interview with myfoxny.com, adding that “you’re supposed to be born in this country.” 



So that's the news for today.  

Ted Cruz and Donald Trump:  A weasel defending a jackass.
