The Indomitable Snow Man

Of all the stories told about the blizzard this weekend, Newark's Mayor Cory Booker came out the biggest hero. He turned his twitter feed into an emergency dispatch unit and hit the streets to aid his citizens, one by one. He literally dug people out of snowbanks, checked on the elderly and even helped deliver a baby.

In contrast, the conservatives' favorite bully boy, NJ Gov. Chris Christie rolled out of town for a trip to Disneyworld, and his Lt. Governor skulked off to Mexico, both just barely ahead of the storm. Unsurprisingly, they left it to a Democrat to deal with the mess they were leaving behind.

What's a matter? Did the truth hurt? Newark is a liberal crap hole. A Democrat stronghold just like Detroit. Decades of liberal leadership and this is what you get. Then again, shoveling is his strong suit. It's just that normally it is not snow that he is shoveling.

Conservative - Liberal: the fewer the pixels, the more ambiguous is the picture and the more likely to suit any argument.

The idea that you're 'hurting' anyone or their feelings however remains unambiguously funny.

And he's sitting up at midnight writing this! How pathetic.

Thanks for dealing with him Fogg. Admit, I've taken to just scrolling over his comments without reading them.

It seems he really thinks he's more than a barking dog and that anyone takes him seriously. Just amazing.

But really such buffoons don't disappear of their own accord.

True. But I figure guys like him will serve as illustrations for future historians of how this country was ultimately destroyed by arrogant ignorance.
