144. "Like Any Good Monster, He Just Came Back Stronger." -- Ice T

Bob Braun's Ledger: With Christie out of the race, the people of America can breathe a little easier...citizens won’t have to worry about a man who used the awesome powers of the federal criminal justice system to silence political opponents. Unless, of course, President Donald Trump makes him attorney general.

Or a cabinet member. Or chief of staff. Or vice president. All of which would have been in his lap had Jeb Bush fulfilled his role as frontrunner. But Braun got one thing wrong -- the wounded beast is NOT going home:

NJ.com: Christie shocked the political world by throwing his support behind his former GOP rival at a Trump rally in Texas. Christie immediately traveled with Trump to campaign stops after the announcement. And he continued his attacks on Rubio, possibly Trump's closest competitor for the Republican nomination.

"Going back to New Jersey, he's got no future," a political science professor (says). "This is a hard-boiled calculation (that) Trump will be the nominee and he will remember this early, critical endorsement."

"This is the best move for him," (says another) political science professor... "He hates Marco Rubio...I think Rubio is going to wet his pants...He's more terrified of Christie than he is of Trump."


Sure, Christie was describing Trump as "unfit" to be president just weeks ago. But why not let bygones be bygones when you could get a vice president, cabinet, chief of staff, or attorney general position out of it? And of course, in addition to moral support, Christie has no doubt bolstered Trump's efforts by turning over his campaign resources to him as well.

NJ.com: ...Just two weeks ago, Christie was on a GOP debate stage in Manchester, N.H. savaging Rubio as an automaton who endlessly produced the same 25 second soundbite. The junior senator "simply does not have the experience to be president of the United States," Christie said.

But on Sunday afternoon, Christie supporters heard from none other than Rubio. Those who supported the governor are now getting messages from Rubio, who was Christie's prime target during the New Hampshire primary...

After joining Trump's campaign? That can't possibly be true!!!

While the email makes it clear that while Rubio's campaign is reaching the sender "because you are a part of Chris Christie's online community" it cautions that it "is not an endorsement by Chris Christie."

...(A) spokeswoman for Christie's campaign...confirmed the decision to sell the e-mail list to Rubio...(but said it) was "no endorsement" and that "it is standard practice for other campaigns to buy lists. Anyone can rent or buy the list via the vendor."

Anyone except a direct competitor, you would think. But let's be fair: If its okay for Christie to love Trump after hating him, why can't he hate Rubio while doing something nice for him even though could hurt Trump? This is Christie's idea of being a supportive, dedicated, loyal team player? I thought Bernie Sanders was the socialist candidate!

NBC News.com: Meg Whitman, the CEO of Hewlett-Packard...served in the role of National Finance Co-Chair for Christie's campaign...Here's her...statement:

"Chris Christie's endorsement of Donald Trump is an astonishing display of political opportunism. Donald Trump is unfit to be President. He...would take America on a dangerous journey. Christie knows all that and indicated as much many times publicly. The Governor is mistaken if he believes he can now count on my support, and I call on Christie's donors and supporters to reject the Governor and Donald Trump outright. I believe they will..."

When Meg Whitman can hold you in moral contempt...You. ARE. Morally. Contemptible.

P.S. Did you know Ice-T was from New Jersey?
