Asshole of the Day, October 17, 2013: Chris Christie
Now that the government shutdown is over, all the assholes who aren’t in Congress are finally getting their chance to be heard again. And today’s asshole is New Jersey Governor Chris Christie:
Republican Gov. Chris Christie said Tuesday that if one of his four children came out as gay, he would “grab them and hug them and tell them I love them.”
He would also tell them “that Dad believes that marriage is between one man and one woman,” he said. […]
“My children understand that there are going to be differences of opinion in our house and in houses all across this state and across this country,” Christie said.
Got that? “I love you, but because you’re gay, I don’t think you should get to have the same rights and chances at happiness that I do. And sure, there may be other parents in New Jersey who want their gay children to have the same rights as everyone else, but you’re stuck with me.”
It’s time to stop calling this asshole moderate.
It is Chris Christie’s 2nd time as Asshole of the Day. His previous win was for wasting $24 million on a special election just to run up the score in his own reelection.
And for all those people who think Chris Christie is not as bad as the rest in his party because he took aid from Obama for Sandy, I leave you with this:

After Barilla’s Chairman stated "I would not do a commercial with a homosexual family" other pasta companies have come forward to state their support of same sex unions.
Oh god, this has just gotten so marvelously out of hand.

HOW DO I LAND?! Here’s a comp of the actual letters from the Cloud Project! The actual day had a very high winds, and the letters appeared and disappeared quite quickly. But if you watched the sky for 20 minutes you could probably piece it together. BUT STILL WE DID IT!!! Thanks to everyone who contributed! Photo by Robyn Von Swank!
