not into you smaller

I've been writing about what a self-serving phony New Jersey Governor Chris "I Never Met a Photo Op I Didn't Like" Christie is for a long, long time:

I've done everything I could to open the eyes of voters-- especially Democratic voters-- who allow New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie to bamboozle them into believing he's a charismatic, Just Like You moderate. Your kind of guy!

In reality, Gov. It's My Photo Op and I'll Verbally Abuse You If I Want To is a self-serving hypocrite. Let's expose him for what he is:

Now Meghan McCain is piling on. She was dishing the dirt with CNN's Piers Morgan, and guess who she is so over? That's right, Chris Christie, among others.

McCain:

"Gay marriage has already won."

"A lot of people in the Republican party that really want to cling to the past and every time people say, 'I'm a bad Republican and your father was too moderate, I challenge these people to tell me what's gonna happen if we nominate someone like Rick Santorum, an extreme conservative on social issues."

Jeb Bush "is much more conservative than people realize."

"I like Marco Rubio."

"I used to love Chris Christie. I'm kinda done with Chris Christie right now. Ever since his speech at the convention... he just talked about himself the entire time..."

But she's totally into her dad.

Hey Meghan, what a coincidence, I'm done with Christie too! Then again, I was never not done with him. Sadly, we still can't be BFF because of that "I like Rubio" thing.

When you think of all the talented people out there who deserve a show, this shit just makes your head hurt.

The MSNBC contributor and daughter of Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., announced on Twitter Wednesday that "Raising McCain," a "genre-busting docu-talk series" will premiere sometime this summer on Pivot, a newly-launched cable network.

According to Deadline, Pivot will launch on Aug. 1 and will have more than 300 hours of original programming during its first year. According to the network, McCain will hit discuss current events with experts and "regular people." The first season is scheduled to have 10 episodes.

2011 VIDEO- Rachel Maddow documents heartbreaking consequences of NRA influence

In light of the Newtown, Connecticut massacre, I'm bumping this up. It was originally posted on May 7, 2011. I've included another video of Rachel Maddow and Meghan McCain at the NRA convention from the same time period.

Original post with quotes added in:

Please watch the videos all the way through.

This is the single most effective, touching, infuriating documentation of the NRA's negative influence on this country that I've ever seen, and of course, it took Rachel Maddow to expose these gun zealots in the most gut-wrenching and understandable way-- by putting a human face on it.

And  that human face belongs to Pittsburgh councilman Ricky Burgess, who suffered personal loss after personal loss with family members shot, neighborhood kids shot, businesses in his district closing, beautiful homes abandoned, all a result of violence decimating the Homewood area. Just watch:

Burgess:

"If you have guns on the street, then a fist fight turns into a shooting."

Rachel:

"What would it take to get business back to Homewood?"

Burgess:

"You gotta stop the shootings. You have to stop shootings."

"If you see it once or twice, it'll change your life forever."

At about 12:12, Rachel asks the councilman:

"If you could talk to the bigwigs at the NRA to explain to them the connection between what they're doing downtown at the convention center right now [see last video of Rachel at the NRA convention below] and what has happened here in your community, how would you put it to them?"

Long thoughtful silence. Then Burgess responds:

"I have watched people who I love-- my own family, my immediate family...-- I've watched them walk out the door and not come home. I've seen kids that grew up in my church who I baptized, who I taught, who I tutored, who ate candy and pizza with with me in my youth group, I've had to do their funerals, watched them shot... We're not hunting rabbits... These guns- are - killing - people... people who I love.... Tell me how many people in your family have been shot and killed by guns, and maybe if you lost 4-5 family members through gun violence, maybe you'd see it from my position."

"But for them it's fun. But for me it's life and death."

"Tell me where it says we have a right to pack an AK-47."

"Certain guns should not be on the street, period."

"There should be ... responsible laws so that a handgun owner has a gun, maintains a gun, and is qualified to have the gun..."

"I believe their interest is more political... well, their interest is not the lives of these people."

The NRA "absolutely control our state. And so any responsible gun law hasn't been passed..."

"I challenge them to come here... I will show you the victims of gun violence... and you tell me what good your lobbying has done for my community."

VIDEO ADDED, Rachel and Meghan McCain in a segment called "Two tickets to the gun show" in which Rachel pointed out that two of the NRA's members actually manufacture high-capacity magazines:
