NJ Governor Chris Christie A Clueless Asshole On Gay Marriage

Republican New Jersey Governor Chris Christie appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe” this morning, where he faced off against openly gay Washington Post  columnist Jonathan Capehart. They discussed the legalization of gay marriage, which Christie recently vetoed in his state.

In a heated exchange, the thin-skinned governor rudely said “I used to be a prosecutor. I’m not going to be cross-examined by you this morning, you’re going to lose.”

Capehart ended the segment by telling viewers that the push for gay marriage was analogous to the civil rights movement in the mid-20th century. “We’re talking [about] a civil rights issue. And what African-Americans continue to struggle with is exactly what lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people are struggling with today,” he said.

The homophobic New Jersey Governor is obviously out of touch with the real world. He reminds me of another New Jersey Governor who was out of touch. Jim Florio? Jon Corzine? Take your pick - because either way he’s still an asshole. Hopefully a one term asshole.
