Remember that special election New Jersey had a few months back? Remember that our man Mitt went to battle for a certain Republican candidate some deemed ‘too hefty‘ to win? Remember when President Obama dropped into Newark as the election drew near to make certain this ‘hefty’ fellow had no chance of being elected?
Does the name Chris Christie ring a bell?
Just a few months have passed since Christie’s victory and subsequent inauguration, and the freshman Governor is already causing tumultuous tides in the once placid waters of Jersey’s shore. His budget-cutting proposals have Unions up in arms and the death threats are already arriving at his desk.
In the ‘must see’ video posted below, we catch a glimpse of Christie’s fiery attitude and Romney-like backbone:

It’s getting ugly in California over Proposition 8.
Here is a death threat letter (NSFW), issued on October 20th, 2008, to two of ten households in a California neighborhood where “Vote Yes on Prop 8” signs were being displayed. Their signs had been stolen by the time they found the letter.
The person who provided me a copy of this letter, who wishes to remain anonymous at this time for obvious reasons, is a head of one of two households to have received identically worded death threats, laced with profanity and insults. The recipient stated that, due to certain phrases and words used in the letter, the writer of the threat likely knows something about the religious background of the two households.
This is the second time that this family has had their signs stolen in only a few days. A police investigation is underway.
