My Christie Crush is so bad now I hear the Partridge Family, I think I love you, whenever I see one of these Christie videos. ..
…Christie was concluding a town hall meeting with Whitman when an angry audience member criticized her for not taking questions.
“What are you hiding?” shouted Ed Buck, in jeans and a light shirt in the front row of the 400-person event. “You’re looking like Arnold in a dress,” he said in a reference to outgoing California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Before Whitman could respond, Christie stepped down from the stage and got in Buck’s face.
“Hey, listen. You know what. You want to yell, yell at me,” Christie said, shutting down Buck as Christie’s bodyguards calmly but quickly approached the two men. “It’s people who raise their voices and yell and scream like you who are dividing this country. We’re here to bring this country together.”
Another one who may not be as red as the right may like, but who can beat the Dem. And Jerry Brown needs to be beaten like a rug on a clothesline.
Even Axelrasputin has embraced Rahm’s policy of recruiting conservaDems to try and hold seats, the GOP needs to win the battle so we can fight the war and restore the economy from 2010 to 2012, or at least hold the line on the destruction the Democratic spending tsunami has wrought.
A new Public Policy Polling survey in California shows Meg Whitman (R) with a big lead over over Steve Poizner (R) in the Republican primary for governor, 51% to 26%.
One poll showed the race tightening a couple weeks ago, but it appears to have been an outlier.
CA Supreme Court upheld Prop 8, and the 18k same sex marriages performed before Prop 8 also upheld, protests have begun…

Gabe has ruling details over at AceHQ:
…Alright, I managed to download a copy of the decision. You can find it here at the Court’s website if it works (PDF). (You might have better luck right clicking and “save as” than just clicking over there.)
The decision is 185 pages long. It’s going to take a minute or two to digest. The gist is that Prop 8 is a constitutional amendment, not a constitutional revision (which would have had to go through the legislature). However, because Prop 8 did not explicitly apply retroactively to invalidate existing marriages, the 14,000 (now reported as 18,000) gay marriages lawfully performed before Prop 8 passed are still valid.
The decision was 6-1. A single justice wrote that Prop 8 worked such a sweeping change in rights that it constitutes a constitutional revision.
No justice agreed with AG Brown’s argument that citizens cannot amend the constitution if the judiciary interprets the amendment to conflict with the existing constitution….
