The Republican Governor of New Jersey Explains #OWS

Caught this first on Powerline, then on Gateway Pundit. The man who defeated the man heralded by Joe Biden as an economic advisor to the Obama administration at the ballot box in a state Obama won by 15 points lays it out:

Note how all the #OWS folks just repeat their leader.  (Wonder what that says about them).  Christie just laughs at these folks, mocking their anger.

Kudos, Governor!

Do those who gambled on Obama in 2008 know it’s time to run?

Considering a challenge Republicans face in replacing Barack Obama next year, Jim Geraghty wonders

. . . if we’re seeing a bit of the “sunken costs” phenomenon on Obama, in that folks invested so much of themselves emotionally in him throughout 2007 and 2008 that they feel that the only way to make that emotional investment “pay off” is to stick with him until fortunes turn around for Obama (and the country).

Of course, as the Wikipedia summary notes, “Sunk costs greatly affect actors’ decisions, because many humans are loss-averse and thus normally act irrationally when making economic decisions.” Like a gambler convinced that his next hand will be a big winner, Obama fans may look at three years or more of disappointment, scandal, and economic hard times and be convinced that a big turnaround and payoff is just around the corner . . .

Or, maybe they’ll take a taste of whiskey and heed the sage advice of Kenny Rogers’s gambler and know when to fold:

Given Mr. Obama’s record since the days of hope and change, it’s not time to walk away, it’s time to run.

As you know, we here at GayPatriot define a diva as a strong woman who commands the respect of men.  And once again, it’s time to pick that blogress who best defines that quality.  In past years, I’ve linked previous nominees and diva-esque blogresses.  This year, I’ll link those past posts when I get a moment, but for now will leave it up to you to nominate those most deserving of this coveted honor.

We’ll keep nominations open for one week, through December 15 at which point Bruce and I will pick those lucky ladies to appear on the ballot.

Um, Arianna, Jon Corzine is the former Democratic Governor of New Jersey

Take a gander of how AOL heads the story on former Democratic New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine’s congressional testimony:

In the article, there’s nary a word about the failed CEO”s Democratic affiliation nor his service as governor of the Garden State, nor any mention of his advisory role in the Obama administration.

Guess in their rush to get this story out, the folks at Arianna Huffington’s eponymous Post just let these minor details slip their minds.
