Krispykreme Touches Third Rail, Survival Doubtful

Jabba the Hutt doppelgänger Gov. Chris "Krispykreme" Christie (R- Angryville) must be feeling his chances diminishing in the Rethuglican clown car derby, what with imminent Federal indictments stemming from his pay-to-play governance of New Jersey and with other candidates sucking the oxygen (and campaign contributions) from him.  It must also sting that almost 70% of the people of New Jersey (who know him best) don't think he'd make a good President.  So what's Krispykreme do to grab some attention, get that old mojo back?   He's proposing the most severe cuts in Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid -- cuts even more punitive than other Rethuglican proposals for entitlement "reform."  That should go over well with seniors, who vote in higher percentages than other demographic groups.  Also, with Krispykreme's poor record on his state's economy,  beside his useful tools in the press, who's taking his public policy positions seriously these days?
