The Republican Politician in a Nut Shell

For those of you not living in the Garden State, you may be unaware that New Jersey is in the middle of a government shutdown.

Hizzoner wants to get money earmarked for handling the opioid crisis to avoid breaking his no new tax pledge.

As a result of the shutdown, all but emergency government services are shut down.

This includes things like government offices and state parks, unless you are Governor Chris Christie, in which case you have the beach to yourself:

People hoping to visit Island Beach State Park this holiday weekend were not allowed in because of the state government shutdown Gov. Chris Christie ordered amid the state budget standoff in Trenton.

But there was one family there: Christie’s. They are using the summer beach house provided by the state for a weekend down the Shore.

And here are exclusive aerial photos by NJ Advance Media showing Christie surrounded by wife, Mary Pat Christie, and others.

It was taken early Sunday afternoon before the governor headed to Trenton to hold another news conference about the shutdown.

At that news conference, Christie was asked if he got any sun Sunday.

“I didn’t,” he said. “I didn’t get any sun today.”

When later told of the photo, Brian Murray, the governor’s spokesman, said: “Yes, the governor was on the beach briefly today talking to his wife and family before heading into the office.”

He did not get any sun,” Murray added. “He had a baseball hat on.

(emphasis mine)

Bad move Governor.  I’ve seen your poll numbers, and they are so low that about the only way for you to salvage your political career would be to get cancer.

It make some voters feel sympathy for you.  (Not me, but some voters ……… maybe)

Take off the hat, and no sunscreen.
