Well Done

Via Crooks and Liars it seems someone has learned a lesson:
Senate President Stephen Sweeney went to bed furious Thursday night after reviewing the governor’s line-item veto of the state budget.

He woke up Friday morning even angrier.

“This is all about [New Jersy Governor Chris Christie] being a bully and a punk,” he said in an interview Friday.

“I wanted to punch him in his head.”

Sweeney had just risked his political neck to support the governor’s pension and health reform, and his reward was a slap across the face. The governor’s budget was a brusque rejection of every Democratic move, and Sweeney couldn’t even get an audience with the governor to discuss it.

“You know who he reminds me of?” Sweeney says. “Mr. Potter from ‘It’s a Wonderful Life,’ the mean old bastard who screws everybody.”
Way to go, Stephen Sweeney. I wonder what difference there should be between the fate of Christie's political neck and Sweeney's.

I'ts none of his business.

And he doubles down on the assholish here.

Seriously, this guy is my new NEMESIS. I mean, yes, I am not in politics and he does not know I exist, but STILL, he is my NEMESIS!

You know who Sweeney reminds me of?

That guy who helped Hitler, and thus was all sorry when it didn't work out so well.

Who could have thought that Christie would be an unprincipled arse cactus.
I understand that Christie has ordered an armour plated helichopper and will hover over NY so that he is safe from Vacuumslayer. Huh, he does not understand, he is her nemesis, nowhere is safe!!!!

I can see him from space! Yes, a tired fat joke. Well, I am tired.

You guys just don't understand. Christie's been such an unprincipled, arrogant, miserable piece of syphilitic phlegm-tainted excrement for so long that when people merely refer to him as "punk" and "bully" it sounds good, actually complemtary to him, and when all they profess to want to do to him in the way of mayhem is to punch him in the head, he sees it as endearing.

He's been hated and loathed by so many for so long that at this point the only way to insult him anymore is to invent NEW epithets, or perhaps learn some new ones from extraterrestrials or from primitive societies that have no yet had contact with human civilization.

W/V helpfully suggests I might be able to get a job as a grave dancer: promorn

" or from primitive societies that have no yet had contact with human civilization"

That's a fine way to talk about South Carolina.

Audience expansion is a key part of the shock of an insult. Here he's made someone mad who thought he was a valuable toady, but that can't be a big deal. Sweeney played the role of sucker! Christie's gotta start working on friends and family.

I want Mikey to dance at my funeral. I'm thinking something suggestive but not too hot, no snakes. Not too interpretive but modern all the same

With today's industrial-strength puppet strings, A.K. can dance at his own funeral.

Sweeney is a real tool, whining like a kid that just got his toy taken from him by his bigger and older brother.

Of course Christie is the King of the Tools..he knows how to play the rubes and it does it well.
