Mitt Romney has a loved one break his VP pick news to Chris Christie.

This is apparently not New Jersey governor Chris Christie falling asleep at a Bruce Springsteen concert.
It’s almost like they don’t want his cooties.
Just how many times can this stupid fucking windbag keep getting away with shit like this?
I shudder to think what would have happened if the civil rights gains, heroically established by courageous lawmakers in the 1960s, were instead conveniently left up to popular votes in our 50 states.
…Equal protection under the law – for race, religion, gender or sexual orientation – should not be subject to the most popular sentiments of the day. Marriage equality is not a choice. It is a legal right. I hope our leaders in Trenton will affirm and defend it.”
Newark, NJ mayor CORY BOOKER, calling out governor Chris Christie for proposing that marriage equality in the Garden State be decided by referendum instead of by legislation, on Jan. 24.
because Chris Christie is a bully and a fucking coward.

Um… is that NJ Governor Chris Christie, on the field behind Giants coach Tom Coughlin? Lobbying for that parking lot parade, maybe?
“But dear God, we should not be putting civil rights issues to a popular vote to be subject to the sentiments, the passions of the day. No minority should have their rights subject to the passions and sentiments of the majority. This is a fundamental bedrock of what our nation stands for.”
Chris Christie, check your gay-marriage milkshake. Cory Booker just drank it.
Five minutes well spent.
“I think (African-Americans) would have been happy to have a referendum on civil rights rather than fighting and dying in the streets in the South.”
New Jersey governor and Republican darling CHRIS CHRISTIE, who is pushing for a voter referendum on marriage equality in his state rather than take up the issue in the Legislature.
Yes, because in those good old days, a referendum was a realistic option for African-Americans, you fucking idiot.
