Please, spare me the GOP tough guy routines.
I’m talking about New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and NY gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino. Both are bullies using money, power and bodyguards to shield them from their own big mouths.
Two quick examples:
Christie was flanked by bodyguards as he charged a heckler in the crowd. That take lots of courage, gov.
Paladino told a reporter he would “take him out” for asking impertinent questions. Presumably, the zillionaire candidate wouldn’t even have to use campaign funds to hire a hit man.
If these two adolescents want to show how tough they are, here’s an idea: let’s have a cage fight for these aging pudge-men who act like they are short of grease in their brain pans.
What do you say, boys? Want to duke it out?
Obviously growing up is too hard to do. That rules out anger management.
You want to know what courage is, guys? Passing health care reform. Refusing to extend tax cuts for the wealthy. Passing Wall Street Reform. Do these kinds of things even when you know it might cost you the election.
That’s how we got the Civil Rights Act. Men and women of courage.
You guys are just blowhards.
