Not your sweetie?

Romney attack-surrogate Chris Christie thrilled his legions of wingnut fans yesterday by sneering the following at a female heckler: “Somethin’s goin’ down tonight, but it ain’t gonna be jobs, Sweetheart!”

Wingnuts love Christie’s Jersey bully-boy antics, and no doubt they relish the stark contrast between his Tony Soprano manner and the gee-whiz, milquetoast demeanor of their unsatisfactory front-runner. But some on the left criticized Christie’s choice of words, suggesting that he was telling the heckler to dig through the folds of flesh below his belt to extract and service Lil’ Smokie, or whatever Mrs. Christie calls it.

Opinions are somewhat divided.

But wouldn’t you think a wannabe “political analyst” like Taylor Marsh—a woman who spent much of 2008 screeching about then-candidate Barack Obama’s sexism because he used the word “periodically” in a sentence that also contained the words “Hillary Clinton,” waxing hysterical about the sexism inherent in the now-president’s brushing-off gesture and avidly promoting the lies that Mr. Obama used “99 Problems but a Bitch Ain’t One” as a campaign theme song and flipped off Mrs. Clinton—wouldn’t she object to Mr. Christie’s handling of the female heckler? Nope:

I’m just not seeing the offense. An “offensive oral sex joke”?

This type of judgment about Christie not having any class is what makes Democrats look snooty. It’s about style, actually, with a side of political correctness from those judging him.

Imagine for a moment the ear-splitting snit if President Obama had said something even remotely comparable—ever. I guess it’s only okay if said by a white dude. Jeebus, what a hypocrite.

I’m just not seeing the offense.

‘Tis difficult for one to see a certain thing when one’s reputation as an Obama hatin’, GOP fluffin’, pedantic PUMA princess depends on NOT seeing said thing.

I’ll admit, I’m a little surprised Marsh thought it was okay. One expects the emoprogs to object to stuff they would’ve considered offensive back in the Dubya days, not to just come straight out with “IOKIYAR, and I’m happy about that.”

“Somethin’s goin’ down tonight, but it ain’t gonna be jobs, Sweetheart!”

Is it a motorcyclist?

Sometimes, one has to dig really deep to find offense.  This seems to be one of those times.  An oral sex joke?  Really?  I don’t think so.

If Christie had added a New Jersy-approved crotch grab to his statement then his comment would have been perfectly clear, but hey, the guys not a contortionist.

Obstructionist: yes; contortionist: let’s just keep our beautiful minds in a lovely, unsullied state, shall we?

@ MM—I doubt Christie actually meant to imply that the heckler should munch his sopressata either. However, I don’t think it’s really all that much of a stretch to interpret it that way, given the words he used. Certainly it’s less of a stretch than construing use of the word “periodically” as a misogynist attack as Taylor Marsh is infamous for doing.

Imagine for a moment the ear-splitting snit if President Obama had said something even remotely comparable—ever.

I did, it wasn’t pretty.  And she certainly wouldn’t have said being called sweetheart is ‘grating’.  But then again, Betty, Obama has a condescending vibe.  Didn’t you know?

After listening to it I thought Christie meant going down as in a ‘gonna kick your arse’ type of way which means he’s simply a tough guy.  Thank gawd for that!

A poster over at TM said the following:

He would likely have used the same term (sweetheart) had it been a man that was heckling him.

No.  Men only call other men sweetheart when they think they’re gay.  Actually maybe he would say it, being a tough guy and all.

Moderate Mom, just wondering, do you think Marsh was correct that Obama was giving Hillary the finger way back when or would that be another ‘digging deep’ moment?

Fatty Fatty 2x4 wasn’t suggesting that they blow him.  He was suggesting that those women blow each other.  They don’t recognize the awesomeness that is Mittens, therefore they must be gay.  No God-fearing heterosexual would dare interrupt Governor Fat Fuck while he delivers a lecture on how Mittens would be teh greatest POTUS ever.  I wonder what he would have said if they were teachers.

When I heard he’d made an oral sex joke to a heckler, I had assumed he went with the classic, “I don’t go to where you’re working and knock the dick out of your mouth.”

Mike, CC doesn’t possess the incomparable heckler-handling skills of Kathy Griffin. He’s merely a blow-hard. (I said “blow”! Hehhhnnggh!)

I’ve watched the Chris Christie video. He didn’t make a sexual joke. He said that jobs were not going down. That’s it. You might read oral sex into what he said, but he clearly did not make any sort of oral sex joke. Watch the video, and you’ll see that it in he does makes no references to sex, a sexual situation, or oral sex. He said ‘going down’- heh heh- but that by itself is not a derogatory sexual reference.

Really, this kind of stuff has to stop. It’s childish. Maybe after you’re out of high school your blog posts will improve.

Isn’t she the one who used to describe herself as a “Jack Bauer Democrat”?

In the Sylvia Plath poetry book she undoubtedly carried around in college, I bet she wrote “Yes, how true!” next to that line about every woman adoring a fascist.

And what exactly did he mean by “something”? Here’s a box of clues C Teach, grab one!

Of all the gin joints in all the blogosphere, I wonder why “A Conservative Teacher” chooses to dump his or her nuggets at Rumproast? He/she leaves his/her droppings and scurries off, rarely to revisit the topic. Why, it’s almost as if he/she isn’t really interested in having a conversation!

“A Conservative Teacher” sure gets around the internet too, for someone who presumably has a full-time job as a (conservative!) teacher. Earlier this week, I saw “A Conservative Teacher” complaining to a fellow wingnut that the Romney campaign had not taken him/her up on his/her offer to share pertinent thoughts on education reform. Can you imagine?

“A Conservative Teacher” actually reached out to the Mittens campaign with what were no doubt very highly detailed (and conservative!) thoughts upon a subject his/her internet handle clearly indicates he/she is qualified to declaim, and what has “A Conservative Teacher” heard back from the Mittens campaign? Crickets.

PS: In case “A Conservative Teacher” does return, here is a reply just for him/her (which is more than he/she will ever get from the Mittens campaign): I didn’t say it was a blow-job joke, genius—just that some construed it that way, which is an incontrovertible fact. Moreover, your characterization of Christie’s remarks is misleading; he said, “Somethin’s going down,” which leaves open to speculation what that “something” is.

I notice ConTeach offers us a link. Let’s see what we can learn about “A Conservative Teacher,” shall we?

A CONSERVATIVE TEACHER

A Conservative Teacher
A Conservative Teacher is the pseudonym for the author of A Conservative Teacher, one of the most popular education and politics blogs in Michigan. As the premier blog written by a conservative teacher, my posts have been picked up by top-tier blogs and I have been a featured guest writer on many more blogs. Those looking for a conservative teacher to interview frequently find their way to me, and I have been invited as a guest on radio programs to talk further about some of my more explosive and exciting posts.

I’m not sure, but I think this is a teacher who is also a conservative.

You’ll have to provide more evidence than that, Quaker. You just can’t read anything you want into any bit of text, you know.

May I make the completely undignified observation that A Conservative Teacher is almost certainly simply A Conservative Fuckhead and not in any way a teacher? Muchos gracias.

His first thought was to say “suck this” but then chickened out.

(And the weird thing is, the actor who plays Mr. D sounds and even looks a bit like Mister Deity, who is also a fuckhead.)

What, teachers can’t be fuckheads?

Comment by Comrade Mary on 01/10/12 at 03:40 PM

(Dudes, technical question: is it just me, or do you have a time machine on your server? My two comments above were posted in reverse order. This happened earlier this week, too.)

(Also also: this is the better Mr. Deity link.)

Comment by Comrade Mary on 01/10/12 at 03:42 PM

It’s not just you, Comrade Mary. We’ve got some sort of bug in the system. I thought it was fixed, but apparently not.

Hey, Quaker, did you notice Con Teach’s blogroll?  It includes firedoglake and Huffpo.

Well, I think we now have confirmation it is a sexual innuendo in a sort of inverted, half-pike with an extended middle finger twist sort of way: Li’l Annie Althouse dug out her Word Of The Day calendar from under the pile of empty wine boxes and waxed prose-erific about how clearly this was not sexual you smutheads.  Tbogg has the details…

One last thing; the initial freeze-frame in the vid link that heads this post clearly shows something very important to every American voter (tm): Romney is a gawddammned Ken doll.  Look, and tell me it isn’t true.

A Conservative Teacher is almost certainly simply A Conservative Fuckhead and not in any way a teacher?

If we pay close attention, we can learn things even from fuckheads.  Like what early onset alzheimer’s looks like.

Yesterday, the li’l CC carbuncle was a’festerin’ BJ with its strained aloofness. Feel free to enjoy the typo/freudian slip (can’t decide which).

A Conservative Teacher - January 9, 2012 | 7:00 pm · Link

In response to your question regarding capitalism, I suggest that you spend some time becoming educated regarding it. This might actually serve you better than writing any further on this blog.

I suggest The Road to Serfdom, by F. A. Hayek. Start with that one. They might make a junior or little kiddie version of it, which would be right up your ally. Happy reading!

Wow, personal attacks and more personal attacks- I guess I’m getting the best of liberal thought and theory on this one! Impressive too- some of the personal attacks show you visited my blog and did some research- usually I just get the usual variety of ‘you’re a doody head’ from liberals.

Excepting Betty Cracker- I like her comments and think she made some good points that I will consider. She must be a Clinton supporter.

Oh that’s right, I forgot: “A Conservative Teacher” does occasionally revisit a blog on which he or she left a comment containing personal insults to decry the personal insults he/she received in return. And to triumphantly conclude that the mass derision must indicate that he/she is “winning.”

I’m sure that’s an effective classroom management technique too. (“The fact that the kids hock loogies into my latte means I’m getting through to them with my awesome CONSERVATIVE TEACHING! Huzzah!”) Zzzzzzz.

It’s the “sweetheart” at the end that makes it sexual, otherwise he could have weaseled out of it.

Oh for god’s sake surely its a bit late for the revirginizing of the Republican party? Doesn’t anyone remember the shocking moment when the entire world learned that Dick Cheney and George W had potty mouths (the “asshole” comment that was caught on mike?) or, of course, Cheney’s “fuck you” to Patrick Leahy, or what about Bush making a jerk off motion with his hand during a god damned debate and asking the crowd “got wood?” 

I reserve the right to point out that vulgar, ugly, ill dressed, people are vulgar, ugly, ill dressed and also that the emperor has no clothes. Fuck off conservative teacher with your bad self. These are your demi gods, not mine.

aimai

Conservatives don’t believe in education because schools contain too much diversity, too many facts and too little Jesus. So my guess is a conservative teacher would be a home schooler.

or what about Bush making a jerk off motion with his hand during a god damned debate and asking the crowd “got wood?” 

I missed that one.

I’m sure Conservative Teacher could tell you there’s lots of value in education. CT gets access to so very much underaged ass that way…

I see Michigan’s worst and most opinionated teacher has scrawled, and having scrawled, flounced on.

For somebody so critical of others’ blogging, that sure is a purty little glass house she’s erected there, designer tumbleweed and all.

I’ll say it again: I’ll take no lectures about anything from the unprofessional asshole who dribbled this out and thought it fit to publish:

Teaching and Brain-Dead Liberal Students

And I’ll also say this again: Open up the comments on your blog, you coward.

More personal attacks and comments about me not hanging around in reply to my comment that all you guys do here is engage in personal attacks and evading of the argument? This sort of proves the saying- ‘proven wrong once, you’re a conservative- proven wrong twice, you’re a liberal- proven wrong again and again and again, you’re a progressive’.

I especially like the lying people on here (lying because they say one thing when they do another) who attack Christie for language- using the word ‘sweetheart’- while also using foul language themselves to attack me or him. That’s classic.

Thanks for the laugh. I apologize for teachers everwhere for having failed you so badly in teaching you thinking, logic, and values.

More personal attacks

Oh, give it a fucking break. You flounce in here, as you do all over the Web when the fit takes you, slinging epithets, exhibiting a superciliousness that betrays your lack of self-perception, and making no sense at all, then you reappear to whinge piteously. It’s a pathological pattern. What the heck do you think these antics are achieving other than giving a few folks some relatively boring lulz at your expense?

I especially like the lying people on here (lying because they say one thing when they do another)

I refer you to your last appearance here, where you failed to rematerialize when we’d pointed out in explicit detail your total hypocrisy in this respect.

Thanks for the laugh. I apologize for teachers everwhere for having failed you so badly in teaching you thinking, logic, and values.

Both my parents were teachers, so are my sister and my sister-in-law. You besmirch a noble profession by your very existence. Apologize for yourself.

And again: Open up comments on your blog. I doubt you’ll get many biters, but at least it wouldn’t be another instance of your glaring gibbering hypocrisy.

I don’t know which is more appalling: the contempt ACT demonstrates for his/her own students on the “Liberal Students = Braindead” post, or the poor language and feeble reasoning skills ACT demonstrates:

The temperature of the globe has not been steadily rising in temperatures since the industrial age, and to be honest, it is difficult to determine beyond a shadow of a doubt whether it is rising even now, what with data being manipulated by scientists, a lack in measuring stations, and an overall problem of putting thermometers near industrial and populated areas that naturally emit a lot of heat.

Yes, those industrial and populated heat-emitting areas, why don’t those manipulative scientists leave them out when determining whether the temperature of the globe is rising in temperatures!

Setting aside the parlous scientific illiteracy, Mrs. P., I just hope she’s not an English teacher!

Also:

... to be honest ...

W00t! The terms “ass” and “both hands” spring to mind.

See, if A Conservative Teacher weren’t too abjectly craven to open up the comments on her blog, people would have the opportunity to point all this out to her in the comfort of her own home, thus avoiding incurring embarrassment where anyone might actually witness it.

But some on the left criticized Christie’s choice of words, suggesting that he was telling the heckler to dig through the folds of flesh below his belt to extract and service Lil’ Smokie, or whatever Mrs. Christie calls it.

Nah, Christie was talking about how Romney was blowing him for endorsements.
