There is no such thing but the wingnuts are good at dreaming them up, and since I just visited the alternate reality that is Politico, I feel vaguely conspiratorial. Btw, Politico is hyping a poll that claimed that Mittbot could win Minnesota. Really? A state that the Dems have carried in 13 of the last 14 Presidential elections? Sheesh. Talk about an implausible feint: Pennsylvania, at least, elected a buncha Goopers in 2010 but the Gopher State elected a Democrat Governor during that teadwad landslide election. Yumpin' yiminy, they must think we're stupider than the love child of Palin and Bachmann or something...
Back to Chris Christie. The wingnut punditocracy and their enablers in the MSM, are convinced that he has some devious neo-Machiavellian reason to "embrace" Obama after Frankenstorm Sandy. First of all, does anyone believe that Christie is subtle and devious? He's as subtle as a ballpeen hammer upside your head and as devious as Red (You're a dumbass) Forman, the misanthropic father from That 70's Show. I take him at his word that he's doing it for his state. As Dr. A-who spent a lot of time on Long Guyland in her youth-said to me earlier today: "People from Jersey love it because everyone else thinks it's a hellhole." I married well.
In another clear indication that they're losing, the Romneyites have "revealed" to Politico that Christie was Mittbot's first choice but he soured on him. What is he, a jawbreaker? Do they even have those anymore?
Some aides around Romney began to sour on Christie when he was late to a couple of events where they were appearing together. “Chris is a sort of cavalier New York, New Jersey guy: ‘If I’m a few minutes behind, I’ll blame it on traffic,’” said a person who knows him well. “That’s just who he is.”
The tardiness rankled the by-the-book folks around Romney. As the vice-presidential selection ramped up, Christie was always at the top of the list, but always with an asterisk.
Some Romney loyalists thought he was too much about himself.
“He wouldn’t make a good Number Two,” one adviser said. That is a point that Christie often made himself, when brushing off talk that he would be chosen.
Advisers also fretted about the raw emotion that makes Christie so popular on TV and on the trail, fearing it might be a liability in the West Wing. In blunt language that Christie can appreciate, another official said: “The explosiveness had some risk.”
I'm surprised that they didn't pile on by calling him emotionally unstable and a compulsive eater. This reminds me of all the stories leaked to Politico by the McCainiacs about Palin when it became obvious that they were going to lose. Such a story is far more revealing than fake-ass campaign stops in Pennsylvania.
My favorite Christie conspiracy theory comes from the Breitbartian bozo, Joel Pollack:
But the truth about Christie’s outreach to Obama is blindingly obvious: Mitt Romney is now running away with this election, freeing Christie to praise the president without fear that doing so will tip the scales.
The only thing that is blindingly obvious is Pollack's malakatude and utter douchebaggery. That's got to be one of the stupidest things I've ever heard in my life. Hmm, maybe Pollack is the love child of Palin and Bachmann? Stranger things have happened.
I'll let some of Chris Christie's constituents have the last word because pretty soon the Romney campaign will be only a memory and a bad one at that:
