Ugly bag of mostly bile Chris Christie did some brave yelling at a guy during an appearance in Belmar, New Jersey, to mark the second anniversary of Hurricane Sandy on Wednesday. Where sometimes your Barry Bamz politely says he respects protesters' rights to free speech (usually before they get escorted out), Chris Christie knows that anyone challenging him is just plain wrong. So he yelled a few choice insults at one guy who dared to challenge him.


You all know me. So if we’re going to get into a debate here today, it’s going to get very interesting and very fun. … So I’ll be more than happy to have a debate with you any time you like, guy, ‘cause somebody like you doesn’t know a damn thing about what you’re talking about except to stand up and show off when the cameras are here. I’ve been here when the cameras aren’t here, buddy. I’ve done the work. I’ve been here when the cameras weren’t here and did the work. So I’m glad you had your day to show off, but we’re the ones who are actually here to do the work. So turn around, get your 15 minutes of fame, and then maybe take your jacket off, roll up your sleeves, and do something for the people of this state.

When the man in the crowd responded, Christie, in his typical professional and potentially presidential manner, yelled back:

So listen, you want to have a conversation later, I’m happy to have it, buddy. But until that time, sit down and shut up.

Sure, Christie's happy to debate this guy here, today, any time. Just not now because shut up. This is seen as Being Tough by many, and Christie obviously isn't wasting any time in trying out his potential 2016 slogan "it's time to start offending people."

MSNBC's Chris Hayes booked the guy, Jim Keady, on his show Wednesday, and it turns out that Jim Keady is not some random screamer; he's a New Jersey small businessman and leader of an advocacy group called Finish the Job. He is seriously torqued off at the glacial pace of assistance to people that Chris Christie promised to help two years ago, but who are still waiting for help from the state. Turns out that New Jersey is still sitting on 80 percent of the funds granted to the state by the feds. That's some $800 million in Sandy relief that should have been spent by now on housing repairs, raising homes in low-lying areas, and the like.

Hayes talked to Keady about the considerable problems that still haven't been addressed by Chris Christie, who nonetheless insists that Sandy victims are his top priority. After petty revenge, of course.

Just in case you hadn't remembered to loathe Chris Christie yet today, this clip will give you at least one more reason, maybe several:

Doktor Zoom

Doktor Zoom's real name is Marty Kelley, and he lives in the wilds of Boise, Idaho. He is not a medical doctor, but does have a real PhD in Rhetoric. You should definitely donate some money to this little mommyblog where he has finally found acceptance and cat pictures. He is on maternity leave until 2033. Here is his Twitter, also. His quest to avoid prolixity is not going so great.

A guest post by "Knitsy McPurlson," which we suspect is not a real name.

Yr Wonkette is not the only website run by brilliant peoples unafraid to poke people with sharp, pointy sticks. Ravelry.com – a website for knitters, crocheters, and other folks interested in textiles and fiber arts – is poking people with knitting needles, which are very sharp indeed.

This past weekend, Ravelry.com's founders showed the world how easy it is to de-platform white nationalists and racists when they banned all "support of Donald Trump and his administration" from their website, concluding they "cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy." Seems like people smart enough to decode a knitting pattern are also smart enough to decode Trump's not-so-hidden message of racism and white nationalism.

One day, God willing, my grandchildren will click open their history textbooks and read about the Central American migrant internment camps. They'll learn about sick kids, locked in cages, kept hungry and dirty and cold for weeks on end, and they'll be horrified.

"Bubbie," they'll say, "how could this happen in America? How could there be toddlers sleeping on the ground without blankets, without soap or toothbrushes to clean themselves?"

"I don't know. I wish I had done more. I'm ashamed," I'll say. We will all have to answer for this atrocity. But some of us will have to answer more than others. Not just the archvillains like Stephen Miller and John Kelly, but the people who kept right on doing their jobs, even as those jobs morphed into defending concentration camps.
