This is too funny. Stephen Sweeney, a NJ State Senator who said he wanted to punch Chris Christie in the head is giving an interview about the budget fights in NJ and nearly gets struck by lightning.
Found at Politico, where the comments are priceless. Some of my favorite comments from the site:
Lesson? D-O-N-‘-T S-C-R-E-W W-I-T-H C-H-R-I-S-T-I-E !!!!!

It looked almost “Biblical.”

If that isn’t a sign, I don’t know what is.

His next stop was the restroom to change his underwear.

If I were advising Obama, I’d was him not to spend too much time out of doors.

Too bad it missed. Jerks like him are the reason why the country is going down the toilet.

It looked and sounded like a warning shot across the bow. He better have a quick chat with the almighty pretty soon. Best he clears things up before the next one.

Hmmmm, could we start having Congress and the Senate meet outside? If just one bold faced liar can draw a lightning bolt imagine Congress and the Senate gathered outdoors!

Ha! I love it! That’s what you call sending a message. I guess Christie has friends in high places. The Democrats have been running NJ for decades, and Christie is trying to clean the messes they left. Sweeney’s continued whining about budget cuts comes across like a teenager who’s upset because he’s overdrawn at the bank, and can’t spend anymore money.

Dear God…next time aim better!

maybe now he’ll get the message- God is a conservative!
Posted By: bikertrash | July 08, 2011 at 04:08 PM
So God is not only a Republican, but a taxpayer. Better pass a fiscally conservative budget, Harry Reid!!!
