I'm so embarrassed. My governor endorsed a raging racist to be President of the United States.

The State of New Jersey is, I think, one of the best places in the world to live, but somehow we have a problem electing decent Governors.

Now we have the height of obscenity. Our useless Governor, Chris Christie, a blubbering incompetent buffoon, announced that he supports a freak racist.

I'm so embarrassed.

3. You have nothing to be embarrassed about, my dear NNadir.

Unless, of course, you voted for him, which I doubt.

These people get into office despite our best efforts.

Someday he will be gone from public office, and what a relief that will be.

Lovely to be humiliated in front of the entire nation.

22. You can call Hillary many things but a 'raging racist'. Now I've seen it all.

For better or worse, much of her support base in the Democratic Party is with African Americans and Hispanics. Unless you think these people are not too bright, I doubt they would support a 'raging racist' for the nomination.

7. Did you personally vote for 'your governor'?

Cause my jackass of a Governor is still running for PResident, and I sure as heck didn't ever vote for him, so I don't accept blame for him.

I've never liked Christi but I thought he was better than a Trump endorsement. Apparently there is a cabinet post or a VP waiting for him.

20. Perish the thought. One of our Governors, a really, really bad one did that recently.

That awful person Bush appointed Christie Whitman to the EPA.

We all know how that turned out: Carbon Dioxide Concentrations, Mauna Loa

Alaska once had an extremely embarrassing half-term governor, and she's still out there mouthing off. We all have our crosses to bear.

32. Perish the thought. It does seem to me...

...that among Democrats, people may be working to make that happen.

The vicious "Hillary is Hitler" and "Sanders is Stalin" rhetoric here is way over the top. Disagreement can be good, to a limit, but that limit has been passed at Democratic Underground in my less than humble opinion.

Just remember, we're a teeny tiny representation of what is going on in the political world.
