Leftism Makes You Meaner
They have to be cruel to say about us what they do.
“Only a fool believes that all those with whom he differs are bad people. Moreover, just about all of us live the reality — often within our own families — of knowing good and loving people with whom we strongly differ on political, religious, social, and economic issues.”
“That said, I have come to believe that the more committed one is to leftism, the more likely one is to become meaner.”
“Did I say ‘meaner’? That makes no sense — meaner than what? A kitty? A skunk? Remind me to correct that. But did you see where New Jersey governor Chris Christie responded to a protestor? He said, ‘You know – something may go down tonight, but it ain’t gonna be jobs, sweetheart.’ That was a typically kind and conservative thing to say. But look what he’s gotten in return: bloggers likening him to a killer whale or a Depression-era German airship. I imagine it won’t be long before a leftist says fellating Christie would be like bobbing for licorice in a hamhock barrel. Some liberal will suggest, when the sweetheart governor confronts protestors by dropping his shorts, a willing young man or woman ask ‘Could you open the flap, or a fold, or something?'”

Who’s Really Obsessed with Sex?
Slate deserves some kind of award for interpretive stretch in reporting that Chris Christie was talking fellatio on the campaign trail Sunday . .
I suspect he would have reacted the same way to a male protester. Call him a bully, guilty of Garden State chauvinism. But this is ridiculous.
“This is ridiculous. A New Jersey governor may tell anyone ‘You know – something may go down tonight, but it ain’t gonna be jobs, sweetheart,’ and it would hardly be a invitation to fellate him. It would be a playful jape, as in ‘You’re going down to defeat, my worthy friend, in this battle of wits.’ The gentleman would then expect a reply from you, sir. You’d say ‘I don’t swing that way, Bruce Vilanch,’ adding ‘Didn’t they try to land something like you at Lakehurst? Didn’t 97 people die?'”

Chris Christie to Occupy protester: You’re going down, sweetheart
After Christie took the stage, protesters changed their message to “Christie kills jobs!”
“Really?” Christie sneered, walking towards the protesters in a menacing way. “You know – something may go down tonight, but it ain’t gonna be jobs, sweetheart.”
“Get it? You’re going to suck a penis – because you’re female. That’s right. I heard your voice and I looked in your direction and I told myself ‘It’s a woman. This will be easy.’ And I said ‘Go suck a cock.’ Funny, huh? Now if YOU had insulted me based solely upon my appearance, you know what you’d be? A bitch. If you said I’d be in Cape May tonight wearing a bib and going down on a dead humpback whale, because I’m fat, what a bitch you’d be. If you said that I’d look like an over-cranked weedeater in a pail of paint as I tore through a whalefull of gut blubber, my only want in life being to tear open its belly and pack my mouth with scrumptious half-digested lobster tails I’d say: ‘Here’s a nickel, bitch – go buy yourself some class.'”
