It really was only a matter of nanoseconds before the patriarch of the rabid right-wing noise machine was going to throw Gov. Christie under the bus (well, maybe an aircraft carrier) following Christie’s totally normal embrace of President Obama. The world’s most impotent man and contraception crusader, Rush Limbaugh simply couldn’t stand a Republican actually doing the job he was sworn to do, as opposed to pledging allegiance to the gospel of Grover Norquist and Rupert Murdoch. Apparently the great screaming fat guy oath means very little to Rush Limbaugh as he assailed Christie on his radios show the other day.
“New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has decided to play the role of a Greek Column today for President Obama,” Limbaugh said, accusing the governor of effectively aiding the president’s electoral chances. “Obama and Chris Christie will tour the Jersey shore. Who lives on the shoreline? That’s exactly right, the 1% live on the beach.” (Mediaite)
Not that gasbag of buffoonery has ever gotten a single assertion correct, but the vast majority of New Jersey residents of the Jersey Shore are a medley of middle-class and upper class and is very mixed. The ocean typically draws in all the various classes and assimilates them. Too bad Rush is too busy with his love for Oxycontin to actually pay attention to what’s really going outside beyond the facts that most people flush three to four times a day.
