Looks like Chris Christie is sick of the nutters, too:
Maybe it is just me, but why don’t more Democrats talk like that- forceful, in your face, etc. I know a lot of you think Christie is a dick, and I think a lot of the time you are right, but performances like this just resonate with people. But when Democrats do it, the media and others freak out (and that’s not even getting into our own side of the aisle- remember Peter Daou and others shedding tears when we were picking on Limbaugh?). Look at how some people they reacted to anything Rahm said. Jay Carney or Robert Gibbs say something mildly sarcastic and you can hear the entire press pool rush to fan Ed Henry and Chip Reid, who have no doubt fainted at the temerity of a Democrat speaking like that. Look at the fallout when Gibbs and others correctly pointed out that Fox is a propaganda organ for the GOP and not a news station.
I almost cheered when Obama “lost his cool” and gave (for him) a bracing attack on the Republicans. We need more of that. Not less. MORE DAMNIT. Do what Christie did- be confident, speak your mind, and if the truth is on your side, everyone who questions you can just go fuck themselves.
