Righties furious with Chris Christie over 'conversion therapy' ban

It appears the sole purpose of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's existence is to remind us that no matter how right-wing you are, no "true" conservative will ever consider you right-wing enough. Doesn't matter how many projects you cancel, how much money you cut from this program for poor people or that program for disadvantaged children, none of it is worth a dime unless you also adhere to the Talibanesque checklist of bigotries and stern social disapprobations and the general premise that religious liberteez are naturally superior to both (1) any American law you care to mention and (2) the civil rights of everyone who is not you.

Christie announced his intent to sign a law banning quack "psychiatric" treatment programs purporting to turn gay children straight, aka conversion therapy, which experts say is frequently cruel in nature and can itself lead to serious harm. The main effect of this will be that if parents drag their insufficiently heterosexual-acting children to be forcibly indoctrinated by quacks, they'll have to do it with hacks that don't care about keeping their professional licenses, which does not seem to be all that big a hurdle to meet. You can find a quack to teach your children anything, if you're the sort of person who enjoys subjecting your children to cranks and quacks and religious zealots.

This is of course an outrage.

On his radio program, Sean Hannity ignored the fraudulent quackery of "ex-gay" therapy to frame the debate as a matter of religious freedom. "Is there freedom of religion anymore, or is that banned in New Jersey?" Hannity asked, before concluding that it "sounds like" the answer is the latter:

You was right Chris his party have thrown him under the bus because he's not as wacko as most teabaggers it looks like the gangsta governor has got himslf in some hot water and is doing a poor job at lying and just think it was only a few days ago that he was polling high numbers against Hillary now he's a national disgrace.

Christie is no better or worse than any other politician. Like the majority of them, he is corrupt to the bone. Besides that, he couldn't beat Hillary if he tried. I don't think the republicans can produce a candidate that can beat her. Assuming she ever declares her candidacy for the democratic nomination.

Yes! Let's put Biden in charge! That one made me smile...
Do you suppose they'll let him carry a shotgun?
Actually, Biden is a better choice for the repubs than Hillary. Him they could probably beat since the old white guy will not be able to rally the votes that got Obama elected or would get Hillary elected.
