Chris Christie — in Milwaukee, at a Brewers game...

"When he initially was going up the stairs I yelled his name. He was quite a bit passed [sic] me, and 30 feet away I yelled his name and told him that he sucked … I called him a hypocrite because I thought it needed to be said. He turned around back towards me and got in my face for what seemed like a long time, but was probably only about 30 seconds or a minute. (He) was yelling at me. First he told me, 'Why don’t you have another beer?' which I thought was a decent come back, and I thought that was kind of funny. Then he started calling me a tough guy."

As you yell in the woods, you will be answered.

Can you imagine an unhinged asshole like this in the White House?

"Can you imagine an unhinged asshole like this in the White House?"

Yes...Yes, I can. In fact, the nation seems to have imagined just such an unhinged asshole into the White House just recently.

Funny.

Oh, the Brewers are done. They'll end up in fourth.

If you behave like a jerk, you can't be surprised to get it back in kind. Just because someone is a famous person does not give you the right to berate them, especially if they aren't performing official duties.

First he told me, 'Why don’t you have another beer?'

I (should have)responded: "Why don't you have another donut?"*

*Famous hockey phrase from 1988.

We were offered a choice between two unhinged assholes, thank you very much.

And we chose the lesser of two weasels.

I probably should not be surprised that a writer for The New Yorker would behave in such a boorish mannner, but I am that he would not have more sense than to brag about it, and still more that his editor did not block him from publishing it.
It puts The New Yorker down to the Daily Mail level by their own standards.

What I don't get is why guys holler like that at ball games anyway. I went to some Rangers games in DFW and the easterners there would go off on the Yankees and the Orioles like maniacs. Totally unhinged.

Can't they hear themselves?

Titus said...

The heckler was a Cubs fan not a New Yorker writer.

He didn't drop a single chip....lol.

tcrosse,

"We were offered a choice between two unhinged assholes, thank you very much."

That's not fair.

She's quite hinged...in public...at least most of the time.

And, Clyde @7:30, well put.

Christie trying out for the White House Staff Trump Olympics...

Since when does some dumbass think they can yell out "you suck" in a public place where folks are just having a good time and THEN whine about getting challenged about it.

What a pussy.

Gahrie said...

I am so disappointed that Christie turned out to be a loudmouthed bully...and pretty stupid too.

Who shuts down a state beach, and then uses it with their family?

If he had done this to me, i would have replied that his security detail was about to get very busy...most of them picking his fat ass off the ground and the rest of them arresting me.

"I called him a hypocrite because I thought it needed to be said."

It was such an original thought he could not contain himself.

David said...

"Yes...Yes, I can. In fact, the nation seems to have imagined just such an unhinged asshole into the White House just recently."

Yes. We failed to elect the hinged asshole.

You have to admit he is funnier than Christie.

Robert Cook said...

"We were offered a choice between two unhinged assholes, thank you very much."

Very true. The rational, responsible choice, then, would have been to vote for neither of them, but for a third party candidate, (as I did and have done for 20 years, given the parade of unhinged assholes both parties keep foisting on us).

Robert Cook said...

"And we chose the lesser of two weasels."

There is no lesser.

Robert Cook said...

"You have to admit he is funnier than Christie."

Yes. And nuttier.

I'm not a Christie fan, but maybe the Cubs fan should try screaming at Rahm instead. It's funny to see FIBs get all indignant about politicians.

Ann Althouse said...

"What I don't get is why guys holler like that at ball games anyway."

What's with yelling to have fun generally?

I've noticed that children at a swimming pool always yell. Is yelling part of swimming?

For many years had an office overlooking Bascom Mall, where 20ish students often played frisbee or other running and romping-type games. The men didn't yell, but the women (not all of them) seemed to need to scream, like it was part of playing.

What is that?!

Humperdink beat me to it.

A question for Etienne though -- Christie knows he is a punk? I think you credit him with too much self-awareness. Even after Trump time and again publicly treated Christie like his bitch, Christie still thinks he's HS.

Howard said...

Guy is a DB. So what if Christie is a vile POS, don't throw his work into his face to a ball game. 100% unAmerican jaggoff... otherwise known as Cubs fans

stever said...

"I called him a hypocrite because I thought it needed to be said"

By you? There? In that way? At that time?

Self awareness fail.

Mark said...

And there is one right over your head.

Ebonics, huh? So you're a racist in addition to being a clueless dimwit.

Part of the problem, Steve, is that there are two Marks, a good Mark and a bad Mark. You're right. Let it go.

I'm way late to the game here but I watched the video several times. I used to enjoy the Chris Christie 'political porn' when he was speaking truth to power (i.e. Informing bureaucrats of the current reality). But, this video exhibits a career in its death throes. He invaded that man's personal space in spectacular fashion. I applaud the man for keeping calm. Had that been me, Christie would have been scrubbing cheese off his hairy tits for the next few days.
