Barack Obama and Governor Chris Christie took a brotherly tour of New Jersey yesterday, each praising the others' leadership as they surveyed damage in the state. But why the sudden comity?
Why doesn't Chris Christie reject federal aid in lieu of Mitt Romney's canned garbanzo beans from Ohio? Or criticize the president for failing to appoint a horse judge as FEMA director? Or invite Paul Ryan into the state to cleanup all the debris that has already been cleared by DPW workers, like a real conservative leader?
It could be that Christie actually cares about the state he governs, though Rush Limbaugh has an alternate explanation…

Those of you who woke up on the East Coast may be tempted to believe that, during the night, your domicile was picked up and swept away to a magical far off land where up is down and left is right and Happy Endings is as clever as people pretend it is and Republicans have decent things to say about Democratic presidents.
And, who knows, maybe you have been…
On NBC's "Today," Christie said the president had been "outstanding" and FEMA's response has been "excellent."
The GOP governor also sent out a thankful tweet: "I want to thank the President personally for all his assistance as w recover from the storm."
"It's been very good working with the president," Christie said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe." "He and his administration have been coordinating with us. It’s been wonderful."
Okay, now, you may think that such nice words for Barack Obama and the federal government coming from a Republican governor would reflect well upon the President as we head into the final week of election season, but actually nothing could be farther from the truth. In reality, this proves what conservatives have been saying about Obama and Big Government all along. And for a very simple reason.
Because… Hold on, on give a second here. I've got this this. It's because… it shows… that… um… Well, hang on. It undeniably proves that… given certain… parameters… of the… Overton window…
Look, the guy's a socialist. And we can't afford four more years of his failed policies. Also, something something Iran.

Meet a man who's fed up with his Congressman. A man who has taken it into his own hands to start a write-in campaign for Congress. A man who doesn't identify himself during his campaign announcement. So close, rocky315w, so close.
If you're going to watch one politics-related video today, make it this one…

The search for truth in this world is best found by avoiding politicians. On the other hand, if you want joke fodder…
Good news, guys. My lit agent just got me a deal adapting the Paul Ryan speech to a nonfiction version.

News that "Jersey Shore" is ending makes it harder for GOP to argue Obama hasn't accomplished anything.
