A brand new poll shows Christie's favorably ratings have fallen a
jaw-dropping 27 points in 40 days. A dive quick enough to blow out your
ear drums. Just last month, Christie enjoyed a positive +12 national

the evidence that Christie's office was behind the closing of the George
Washington Bridge emerged only 21 days ago, on January 8th. So the 27
point collapse has essentially occurred over the past three weeks.
That said, I just saw American Hustle, which is story about corrupt New

Did you see him run through the streets and far away
Did you see him run, did you see him fall
Did his life flash by at the bedroom door
But it gets better!

To quantify the extend to which the lunatics have taken over the asylum,
PPP finds the most popular person among GOP voters is.... you guessed
it.... Half-Governor Palin
Among GOP voters, Palin holds a stunning 70% approval rating. If the
GOP had their way, the failed reality show clown would be President
There you have it. The party of Eisenhower and Buckley is now the party
of Michael Grimm, Uncle Sugar, Tim Huelskamp, and Sarah Palin.
