The Daily Caller ^ | November 14, 2012 | Jeff Poor

In the aftermath of last month’s Superstorm Sandy, the way New Jersey Republican Gov. Chris Christie handled the disaster by working with President Barack Obama left some conservatives questioning Christie’s motives and political future.

One of Christie’s fellow New Jerseyans, HBO “Real Time” host Bill Maher, spoke highly of Christie. Maher is an outspoken liberal, donated $1 million to Obama’s reelection bid and may not be an endorsement that Christie would otherwise seek out.

On Current TV’s “Viewpoint with Eliot Spitzer,” Maher explained his admiration for the current New Jersey governor.

“You know, on the one hand you have people like Chris Christie who looks like somebody to me who could be a hopeful beacon in the Republican Party — somebody who when push came to shove worked with the president, put politics aside and said, ‘Look there are bigger things,’” Maher said. “I can actually embrace this guy. I know there was a lot of talk in the media about what were his machinations, why was he doing this. I don’t think it’s that complicated. I think he’s a basic guy. I don’t agree with his philosophy in politics, but basically some bad stuff happened to him in his state and he got the memo.”

Maher also praised Christie’s more general qualities, like the way he speaks and his ability to handle media...

The first comment on the site sums it up aptly:

Sorry, Bill... Your short little arms and girl hands won't go around him for a proper cuddle.

If you watch the Sci-fi flicks, Chris is like the fat boy who always dies because he is a wimp at heart and had to go back for the snack. He is the monster’s best meal.

Christie doesn’t see it yet, but the monster has already devoured his future.

Yeah. A second fork, in case metal fatigue takes out the first one, mid-meal. ;)

Perhaps, but he obviously doesn't leave anything on the table.

Yes, he sure does: A bucket of chicken, a lb of potato wedges, an entire cheesecake, a few boxes of Little Debbies and a gallon of Coke to wash it down. FOAD Christie!

A lovesick Chris Christie vogues to Madonna's "Like A Virgin," in a desperate attempt to seduce Bill Maher and Barack Obama into taking him up on his standing offer of "a good, old-fashioned Jersey Tongue Sandwich, if you know what I mean, and I think that you do. Oh, SNAP!"

"Bill Maher on Chris Christie: ‘I can actually embrace this guy’"

THAT tells you all you need to know about the NJ Doughboy.

Impeach the kenyan or secession.
