Taking Bets Here

June 30, 2015 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

Chris Christie is running for President.

We at The World’s Most Dangerous Beauty Salon, Inc., are now accepting wagers on how long the Christie Quest will last.

Thelma figures he’ll cuss out somebody on national teevee within a month.  Verdelia says he’ll cuss somebody out within a week and try to eat somebody within a month.

I figure that Rick Perry’s last campaign went for three months after he oops all over himself, so I’m going with late October.  He’ll be out before Thanksgiving.

Anybody else want in on this bet?

  1. i’ll take the under for $10 thank you. Uh, make that $20.

  2. I suspect that cussing somebody out and trying to eat a liberal will make him the front runner for a time. Then he will say something rational and out he’ll go.

  3. Uncle Dave says:

    That he is out after the Iowa caucuses is an even bet, 60/40 that he is gone after New Hampshire, and after South Carolina you can stick a fork in him (it will take a spade fork) 80/20.

    Trucks have maximum weight restrictions for using public roads. By now,the wingnut Klown Kar has to have exceeded the maximum weight per axle allowable-even if there were no restrictions.

  5. Ralph Wiggam says:

    LynnN is right, we expect mean and crazy from Republicans. That’s their version of pandering to the base.

  6. Personally, although I feel there should be a max for number of candidates–and a max for amount of funds raised or spent–I’ve hit that philosophical state of wanting about 20 idjets in the car, or more. Because:

    1) They will suck up and use funds that might be helpful in main fight during the primary. (And how much you want to bet those job numbers make Obama look great?)
    2) They will make blunders and mud-sling something awful making most of them so ugly to the final vote population.

    So adding more clowns seems only beneficial to progressives as they fight for recognition and placement in the primaries.

  7. Hollyanna says:

    What LynnN and Ralph said is right on the money. The last thing their base wants is rationality! What a sad state of affairs for the GOP. But, when you lie down with dogs…

  8. BTW, there are lots of marketing studies that show giving shoppers more than 3 choices starts shutting down their ability to decide and take action with the decision.

    So the more clowns, the better to send them off screaming to a place of easier decisions.

  9. It’s not a clown car anymore, it’s a clown Winnebago.

  10. Cheryl Ann says:

    I’d love to see Trump and Christie try to out “straight talk” each other! By the end of that conversation they will have offended everyone! Ok, maybe not old white guys who have not yet retired.

  11. @TTPT: nope, its a clown semi.

    I am in the pool. He doesn’t make it to 1 November. The withdrawal speech ought to be something interesting though….

  12. Marcia in CO says:

    Oh, TTPT … it has to be bigger then a Winnebago at this point and especially so since Christie joined the circus!!

  13. Well, hot damn, now we have a real live pinata in the race.
    Don’t even have to bother with that paper mache stuff. Odds are he’s full of beans and hot air. Try to stay in front of him at all times And, not a Winnebago, he’s his own shipping container.

  14. Given the history and character of some of the candidates they may need a clown paddy wagon.

  15. Ralph Wiggam says:

    I think it is time for brackets like the sweet 16 in the NCAA basketball tourney. We’ve got Rubio v. Bush in the south east division and Perry v. Cruz in the southwest division and Rand Paul v. Donald Trump representing the deep space division.

  16. Polite Kool Marxist says:

    I’ll take $50 on how many are indicted before the first debate. That should be all of them but I’ll predict 3.

  17. Lorraine in Spring says:

    I don’t bet anymore.

    The last time I did I lost and ended up in Texas.

  18. Sandridge says:

    Agree, this Jersey guajolote gordo y feyo is stuffed by Thanksgiving.

    The GOPosuar well may not be deep, but it’s wide, shallow and foul.

  19. Please please let him stay in long enough so that we can see, watch and hear Christie and Trump on debate stage together. both calling the other a loser and drowning all others out.

    As a side light I think the rethuglicans should form up 2 or 3 debate panels (Named – Alpha, One, A – so nobody feels slighted) by random draw and then have the same debate 2 or 3 times – same questions – like duplicate bridge.
    Next debate cycle would require a new draw until the number of people shrink to a single debate stage size.

  20. JAKvirginia says:

    Christie? At this point, who cares? Have ANY of them said ANYTHING that isn’t either wacko or on the edge of just plain nuts? And Christie? The people of his own state can’t stand him.

    We all know where this car/semi/Winnebago is headed…
    down the Highway to Hell! (great song by AC/DC)
    Here’s a look at the opening of the 2016 Republican National Convention:

  23. maryelle says:

    Skip the above.

  24. Jean Kuhn says:

    If I had my druthers he’d be gone by the weekend. Living with that nasty loudmouth as governor has always made my skin crawl. However, I am betting he will blow his top at somebody in the press by Labor Day. That may not be the end but it will be the beginning of his implosion. I just threw up in my mouth a little visualizing that bag of lard imploding.

  25. e platypus onion says:


    Here you go,Maryelle. 🙂

  26. Anybody who cusses out a war veteran as in shut up and sit down shouldn’t even be allowed to think of running! His habits are all bad and have their own vigor. When he goes down, count on seismic ratings.

  27. slipstream says:

    I’m going with the historic metaphor. The Titanic sank on the fourth day of her voyage. My bet is on Christie hitting an iceberg on July 4, 2015. The band will play “Nearer My God to Thee.” There won’t be enough lifeboats.

  28. Cat Shroedinger says:

    Related bet:
    When he leaves the race, whom will he blame? Lib’rul MSM? Obama/Chicago thugs? The SCOTUS for the SSM marriage ruling?

  29. e platypus onion says:

    You will be called on to coordinate his rescue,Slip. Ever think about that?

  30. BarbinDC says:

    I’ve gotta pop some more corn. I need to resupply the Orville Redenbacher’s.

  31. Richard T. Allen says:

    Given the present mental state of Murika’s population…he may make it all the way to The Republican National Convention…he can exchange psycho babble with Trump.

  32. Richard T. Allen says:

    @BarbinDC…was that Orville or Orwell? 😉

  33. slipstream says:

    Yeah, platypus, I will be there to rescue him just as soon as the traffic on this bridge clears up. Could be a while.

  34. Lucy's dad says:

    I’m going to go out there. January. It will be because he said, among all of the bluster and blather, something true. You know how truth affects the GOP. It’s like the wicked witch and that bucket of water.

  35. @slip
    When the Outlawed Jersey Whale hits the iceberg may I have some of the crushed ice that surely will rain down for days following the collision?

  36. Marion (formerly known as MM) says:

    I’m wondering which governor will perform the courtesy of blocking a bridge that would otherwise get him to a campaign stop on time.

  37. e platypus onion says:

    Think green and save the iceberg at all costs. 🙂

  38. Ole Scout says:

    Mesieur Onion – republi-can’ts have no concept of regulation especially in interstate commerce. They will keep piling on more ‘avoir du pois’ until the axles break. The repubs will top out at 18 candidates and none of them will actually be smart enough to leave on its own.

  39. Mike Lavender says:

    Give ’em two months. Now with The Donald in the race they’ll take this Mutt & Jeff act on the road and NBC’ll hire ’em as the Fall replacement for the Miss Universe Pageant.

  40. slipstream, I like the idea of going with an historic metaphor, but I think I’ll skip the Titanic and go straight to the Hindenburg.

  41. Lynn, oh the humanity! the humanity!

  42. Actually I think there is an advantage to not airing Miss XYZ pageants, in addition to pi$$ing off Al-Donald.

  43. maggie, I was thinking more to the effect that we are talking about gas-filled blimps in both cases.

  44. Marge Wood says:

    Glad to know it’s a scientific proven fact that more than 3 choices shuts down your decision making powers. I always thought it was being a second kid.
