Cafeteria Americans

By PHILLIPE AND JORGE  |  August 18, 2010

Meanwhile, Moffitt's primary rival, John Robitaille, said the endorsement that he would covet would be that of New Jersey Head Ramrod, Chris Christie. The down side of that is, while everyone knows who "Grizzly Mama" is, Governor Christie is probably about as well known in these parts as Robitaille.

. . . to the geniuses from the Democratic Governor's Association whose ads designed to encourage Vo Dilunduhs to believe that Linc Chafee was joined at the hip with George W. Bush are thoroughly laughable. People in the Biggest Little know Linc Chafee and they know his history with W. and how during his time in the US Senate, Chafee gave Bush nothing but agita. Many also know that Chafee endorsed Barack Obama in 2008. Trying to tie Chafee to the extreme right in this state (and offer surreptitious support to candidate Caprio along the way) is really a fool's mission and you would think that Frankie Boy would let them know it's not helping.
