No means no

What part of “no” didn’t they understand? For weeks Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) had been saying “no” when asked if he’d run for president. And the media kept interpreting it as “maybe,” “possibly,” and “I might.” (So glad I never dated one of those guys.) Then finally, Christie called a press conference for a big announcement Tuesday. And again he said “no.” Seventeen different times, according to one source’s count. And yet … and yet … one source last night was still reporting he had still left the door “slightly open.”

  1. C’mon Pied, loosen up! Political dancing like Christie’s and Palin’s is, IMO, a bountiful source of amusement, is it not? Think of all the comedians that would be out of work without this stuff. You couldn’t make this stuff if you tried. Now that the dust has cleared, what do we see? Herman Cain tied in the polls with Romney!!!

    1. Gee, when you said “loosen up,” I was afraid you were starting to talk like those media guys who insist “no” means “maybe.” I agree about the fodder for comedians. To think I worried that the well would run dry when W. stepped down!! Cain tied with Romney is pretty unbelievable, I’ll admit. As were the two-second careers of Bachmann and Perry at the top of the heap. And heaven help the media if Paul ever takes leads the polls, since they seem so determined NOT to mention his name, no matter what. πŸ˜†

... and that's my two cents
