Baby Did a Bad Bad Thing

You have to have a little pity on Chris Christie. There he was, in Las Vegas, standing in front of Sheldon Adelson and a bunch of his cronies in the Republican Jewish Coalition, trying to ingratiate himself with a little sniveling and bootlicking, and then he says this:

Invoking a 2012 trip he and his family took to Israel, Christie recalled in the speech: “I took a helicopter ride from the occupied territories across and just felt personally how extraordinary that was to understand, the military risk that Israel faces every day.”

In case you missed it, and be assured that the crowd didn’t, calling places like the West Bank “occupied territories” in front Adelson’s crew is like calling RU-486 “birth control” at a right-to-life convention. So, more genuflecting and ass-kissing ensued:

Not long after his speech, Christie met with Adelson privately in the casino mogul’s office in the Venetian hotel and casino, which hosted the RJC meeting.
The source told POLITICO that Christie “clarified in the strongest terms possible that his remarks today were not meant to be a statement of policy.”
Instead, the source said, Christie made clear “that he misspoke when he referred to the ‘occupied territories.’ And he conveyed that he is an unwavering friend and committed supporter of Israel, and was sorry for any confusion that came across as a result of the misstatement.”

It’s almost like there’s some issue keeping Christie from hiring and retaining good staff who would have briefed him on the right language to use in front of a bunch of Zionists.

    The real pity here is that even if Christie was a real contender, saying one wrong word in front of Adelson could cost you the nomination. It seems if the guy who contributes more than 100 million has more than his share to say in how this country is run. Watching the candidates bow before him reminds me of the movie 9 1/2 weeks when Kim Basinger crawled across the floor for a dollar to complete her humiliation.

    StringOnAStick says:

    @patrick II: I agree; it is disgusting seeing how any politician has to grovel before the Zionists if they want to survive our Moneyball nominating process. One good thing though: Adelson proved last time that he has rather poor picking skills as far as successful candidates go.

    If Chris Christie doesn’t support Adelson’s political positions, he shouldn’t come begging for Adelson’s money. I suspect Christie doesn’t really care about Palestinians one way or the other, since they don’t vote in New Jersey and can’t give him campaign money; but in any case, he shouldn’t apologise to Adelson for using a common and accurate way to describe the West Bank.

    Israel pisses me off like very few issues, and this is exactly why.

    Christie flies over one of the world’s biggest occupation/colonization projects. Completely indifferent to everyone being colonized/occupied, the only thing he can think to say is “those poor Israelis, so threatened. It’s just awful. All those security problems.” As opposed to, you know, the security problems inherent in being slowly shoved off your land while living under military occupation. And yet, when he comes back, the only critique that’s made of him is that because he didn’t use the colonizers’ preferred designation for their colony, he’s labeled “hostile to Israel.”

    Sadly, just another day in this discussion.

    Elie says:

    Maybe Obama will let Christie smell the seat of his chair in the Oval Office. That is the closest he will be to that office.

    Clearly, his intelligence and political skills are junior league… whaever important facts he may happen to learn, he cannot retain because the braggadocio of the moment takes over. As someone upstring said, who could brief him and who would he allow on his team with the necessary skills that he would respect. He has no respect for anyone but himself… everyone else from his team, funding supporters and without question, his constituents — are just objects to be used at his discretion. He won’t remember or empathize enough to avoid these sorts of mistakes..

    Running for national office and the Presidency is extremely difficult and the successful candidate is under scrutiny 24/7. Christie’s character, similar to the Killa from Wasila’s, cannot bear that kind of scrutiny.

    Also, I don’t think any of the current crop of front runners can bear that scrutiny, including the dark horse, JEB!

    The Republican Party is sick and totally unprepared to govern in the real world — or any world. AND, they truly represent no ideas beyond hatred of the other brown and poor people and that rich people should run things. AND they are hopelessly stupid. That’s it

    But as a bonafide bully, he can beat up folks and steal what he wants. I imagine in his line of work, stealing is essential. Problem for him is that he may believe that he earned what he actually just stole and conferred on himself the notion that he can judge, select and manage on merit. He doesn’t and truly cannot, so when he has to select on merit, the results just reflect his ego rather than a real vetting process.

    Why would any good people work for Christie? Worthless corrupt people only attract either other worthless people or people who are willing to sell their souls for money. This is why Christie (and the Republican party) will continue the downward trend. Republicans have many billionaires on their side, but money ultimately corrupts everything. Republicans are going to learn this the hard way. Only thing is how much is the country going to suffer along the way.

    I want to echo the comment above that we should win in 2016, unless the GOP voter screwing effort is too far advanced to allow it. Given how many things will be adding up to make that their last real shot at the presidency, we have to bet that they will do everything they can to limit voting by the ‘wrong’ people.

    Obviously, this is where the Dems and us as individuals need to concentrate our efforts, or else the future and everyone’s golden years are going to suck for every individual of any age reading this. As an added kicker, if they win in 2014 then it is going to be really tough to keep them from implementing their voter suppression plans. Our marching orders have been issued!

    3) Therefore, of course I should pick only yes-men who follow my lead in all regards. I’m not saying I’m PERFECT and I’ll NEVER make mistakes, but I’ll make fewer than they would if they were thinking for themselves. After all, I’m richer than them. So I’m smarter.

    If you look at the old days, the era of machine politics and poll taxes and the like, one of the takeaways is that it was incredibly easy for elites to lock up a nominally democratic system in such a way that what the voters wanted didn’t really matter. It started getting better over the course of the twentieth century, but the current overlords seem hellbent on bringing the old ways back.

    Sheldon thinks that owning you is only worth 1/10,000th or whatever of his money. The kochsucker brothers think you are worth even less.
    Many of us have jobs that really don’t do anything positive, other than we exchange time and a little effort for money. So in that context we are only different in amount than the rich. But they don’t think our value is anything at all and they are constantly trying to depress that value, pay us less and get more.
    Maybe we need to say it that way. The rich value us at effectively zero. Not minimum wage, not $10.15 per hour, not $15. per hour, ZERO. Or even less.

    That’s why, if we want a democracy, we will have to prevent people from gathering so much wealth.

    Money will always talk, no amount of campaign finance laws can reverse that.

    If we insist on “rewarding” the clever and ruthless with unbounded wealth, we should give up on democracy and just start giving the richest people titles and direct power.

    $ 100,000,000 : Baron
    $ 1,000,000,000 : Duke
    $ 10,000,000,000: Archduke

    and so forth.

    Duke Sheldon Adelson. Archduke Charles Koch.

    Progress!

    The pay for waiters and the like offers a hint of just how low they want all our wages to be.

    @Mr Stagger Lee:

    I fear what is going to happen in both Ohio and Wisconsin this year.

    Why be anxious about this? Both Republicans will be re-elected comfortably. Both will be promoted as presidential candidates. One of them might win.

    Just a question because I’m honestly not sure. Is the word “Zionists” dog whistle code for Jews? I’ve seen it in comments for lots of message boards and it seems to be the code word.

    @Patricia Kayden:

    I don’t see that as a winning strategy — not in 2016 or beyond.

    Well if you stop everyone else from voting, you win right?

    Exactly.
    They value us at nothing.
    I take some offense at that.
    I’ve said before that my time isn’t worth much but it is worth more than that.

    The Jews who still believe in Greater Israel, to be specific, including but not limited to the Likudniks. The West Bank isn’t occupied territory to them, but Israel’s birthright.

    @karen:

    Not really. Jews in this country may be Zionists, but mostly not. Jews in Israel are only Zionists if they vote for Likudnik candidates who continue to push Arabs off their ancestral farms to make room for apartments for Russian Jews moving to the Holy Land.

    So Zionists are the Republican Jews, sorta. Most American Jews are Democratic party members, and work hard for our candidates.

    It can be used that way — but the word has a specific meaning of its own, which you can look up.
