Christie's Shariah "Crazies" Strike Back

Following up on Fixer's post, links at Media Matters:

Christie's comments have drawn plaudits from the editorial board of the New Jersey Star-Ledger and from the ACLU and Southern Poverty Law Center. But the "crazies" are unhappy, and they're not letting the matter rest.

Geller comments that Christie "has shown himself to be a dangerous blustering bloviator, a good little dhimmi" who has made a "monumental mistake." Andrew Breitbart's Big Peace website calls it "disappointing" to see Christie "dismissing substantive and damning facts, statements and associations in order to accuse his critics of racism and bigotry." And JihadWatch comments, "to think that some people think this tool would be a good president."

It will be interesting to see whether other Republican politicians follow Christie in denouncing the anti-Islam right-wing media, or if they knuckle under in the face of this sort of criticism.

My money's on "knuckle under". Honesty will get them nowhere with those ideological idiots.

I wonder when the "Recall Fats" campaign begins on the Right.

And yes, all the good little Fascists will knuckle under for the "good of the Party".

I've had the misfortune of knowing Christie-types. I don't like them and I don't trust them. I'm not impressed with his embrace of one follower of Islam. My instinct tells me this is not rationality or altruism. I'm suspicious that there is a bully's nasty little reason and some sort of self-serving motive behind this mote of sensibility.

Yes, I know, I'm a bloody-minded old baggage.
