#PAGov: Corbett Texts Christie to Hang in There Bro

Share With Friends

The most precious:

The Keystone State incumbent also defended his friend in the next state over, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. Corbett said he’d be happy to have Christie hit the campaign trail with him this fall.

“Chris could come right across the river,” he said, adding that Christie would be helpful to him in the vote-rich southeastern Pennsylvania suburbs.

Corbett said he texts Christie frequently, telling him to “hang in there” and asking how he’s handling the traffic scandal that’s dogged the Garden State governor this year.

“He’s sorely disappointed and hurt that these people made these very stupid errors in judgment and then didn’t admit to it,” Corbett said.

Somebody should tell Corbett that it’s February 2014, and Chris Christie isn’t popular with swing voters anymore. Or better yet, don’t:

When Chris Christie started to talk over a complaining questioner, a signature tactic of the bellicose, pre-scandal governor, the audience here briefly turned on him.

“Answer the question,” some shouted.

When he took a microphone from a long-winded speaker, the man startled Mr. Christie by snatching it right back.

And when he singled out a young woman as his inspiration for repairing the Hurricane Sandy-battered coastline, he failed to grasp that the girl’s mother — sitting just a few feet from Mr. Christie — was angry with him for not doing enough.

“He’s full of it,” she said.

  1. Tom Corbett is the pretty girl. Christie is the ugly girl he hangs out with so people will see how pretty he is. He’s pretty because he’s pretty. And Christie is, is the UGLY girl, not Tom.

  2. Ed H. says:

    Maybe Brian Sims can give Corbett an endorsement and still be relevant as a progressive in Jon Geeting’s eyes.

    • Jon Geeting says:

      Sims has been a more effective messenger against Corbett than most Democrats. Who’s your ideal House Dem standard bearer, Mark Cohen LOL

      • Ed H. says:

        Really? Outside of the Gayborhood, and one news bit that lasted for a day or two on DaikyKos about Metcalf, how is Sims a standard bearer for Democrats? He holds no leadership role. He’s not well known statewide. He’s made kid blunders in an adult setting with his endorsements. He doesn’t bring much to the table. Oh yeah… That evil Building Trades union that you want to see broken and wages fall for all construction workers… He’s coming to ask them for support this week for some legislation.
