Governor Chris Christie was kinda hilarious. Why do I think he just kicked off his 2016 Presidential Campaign on Saturday Night Live?

Hmmm… no mention of Obama from Christie. Wonder why? He ticked off a ton of people with his over-effusive praise of O.
“a ton of people” = right wing morons
Yes, that’s right. Insult people who think differently than you by trashing them. How very liberal !!
C’mon Victoria Jackson! Haven’t you learned that making internet comments isn’t your strong suit by now?
Hmmm… it’s SNL, Victoria, not Meet the Press. Who cares if he mentions Obama?
Doubt he’ll get this kind of warm reception on SNL if he does run for POTUS — as a Republican that is. Now if he runs as an independent siphoning votes away from the GOP to the benefit of Clinton/Cuomo, then he’ll be beatified by the liberal-government news media complex. He won’t possibly be GOP nominee.
But funny skit nonetheless — would have been funnier if he had wept at the mention of Bruce Springsteen.
the liberal-government news media complex.
As opposed to the Lying Ass Fox News Complex??
Hell, according to them, Christie only weighs 140lbs.
Geez, haters, you won and you STILL can’t relax? The guy’s funny. He was in a sketch. That’s it.
Grow the F up.
Oh sure, NOW you say that.
I however, vividly remember the years between 2000-2006 and all the
S%!@$ you guys made us eat as the Cheney?Bush regime wrecked this country beyond recognition. So, no, not gonna relax.
I just watched this…it was awesome. And I’m a guy who worked for the Obama campaign. I wish more politicians had fun with their public image like this….
Agree with you.
Thought it was great fun for Christie to do this. Can’t imagine any other politician who would see the value in making this kind of appearance AND be able to pull it off.
I had the exact same thought, Nikke. Lorne Michaels is NOT naive when it comes to politics, so expect a parade of 2016 hopefuls of both parties in 2013 and 2014. While the 2016 race may seem far off now, the candidates will start lining up in 18 months or less.
Appearing on SNL, Leno, Letterman, Fallon, Kimmel, et al is as required for candidates as going on Face The Nation, Meet The Press, and other “serious” news shows. Mittbot mostly ignored this at his own peril. Of course, there’s no way to know if appearing on those shows would have made any difference, but erpect the 2016 candidates to be accessible to all the shows if they expect to be a contender.
