Europe Comes To Jersey - To Bash Christie and Issue Slurs !

Well, their support helped doom John Kerry's 2004 election bid, their continued support of Barack Obama may help doom his entire why not let the Europeans get involved in the Corzine/Christie battle?

From an outraged - outraged! - British comedian Martin Lewis, at the Huff:

Chris Christie, the Republican candidate for Governor of New Jersey in Tuesday's knife-edge gubernatorial election, has been called out as a copyright thief. The 47-year-old lawyer... has created an election commercial that steals copyright-protected material from British comedy troupe Monty Python -- without permission or credit.

Christie is no stranger to the world of crime. As the New York Times reported on September 23rd this year, Christie has family ties to the notorious Genovese crime family. As a child, he mingled at family parties with Tino "The Greek" Fiumara -- the brother of his aunt's husband -- described by the Times as "a fearsome and ranking member of the Genovese crime family: twice convicted of racketeering, sentenced to 25 years in federal prison, and linked by investigators to several grisly murders, including one in which a victim was strangled with piano wire."

I had to read this twice to make sure it wasn't intended as comedy. Still, I thought it would be great to help publicize this faux outrage.

Obviously, Mr. Lewis does not understand New Jersey too well. To compare Christie to a mobster, a killer, to label him as "fearsome" - this is praise to us Jersey folk. After all, they don't call Jersey the "Soprano State" for nothing, and if there was ever a state that needed some serious kneecap-bashing, it's New Jersey.

And for all those who have a distaste for comparing New Jersey to a poorly-run crime family? Someone ought to tell Martin Lewis that they resent Italian stereotypes almost as much as buttinsky European liberals....

Click on the link above to see the (now-pulled) campaign ad. It's funny, and the Monty Python crew should be proud. Would be, if it were being used by a Democrat...

In the meantime, Martin - keep it up. Another 48 hours of your idiocy will make Mr. Christie a lock...
