Gov. Christie takes on West Hollywood activist at Whitman rally in California

Unfortunately, it’s not completely clear what Ed Buck – activist and former European-traveling model – is yelling about. I think he mentioned somebody lying about Jerry Brown, but Ace mentions something about Meg Whitman – running for governor in California as a Republican – looking like Arnold Schwarzenegger in a dress. You can’t make this stuff up.

Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.) stepped in since he did not like Buck yelling at Whitman. I don’t think he was successful in completely shutting the guy down, but the otherwise friendly crowd certainly whooped and hollered after the exchange. Although the video does not show it, it looks like Buck may have been escorted out.

In an online article concerning Buck’s candidacy in 2007 for city council in West Hollywood, we learn he fosters rescued dogs before adoption. That’s nice of him, and I bring it up since … well … I’m not sure.

Others writing include AP at Hot Air who ads a good video with a story told by Christie at the event. Ensure you head over to Real Clear Politics who has a full news report with a bit more information about the Whitman rally and verbal tussle.

UPDATE (Jim): I’ll take one of these please!

    Again, another reason why this country needs more people like Christie representing us! Most "Politically Correct" Republican's would never go face to face with this kind of idiot. He handled it professionally,but more importantly…HE HANDLED IT!! I sure hope this guy reconsiders his position on 2012! It would be the biggest blowout in U.S. history!

    I love him. Maybe I'm a cynic, but I'm afraid CT is too "blueblood and professorial" on a whole to embrace this guy. As a CT born WASP, I can say this and not worry about PC.

    Buck has Ed Asner as an endorser.  'nuff said.


    Christie has the testicular fortitude that we need in our politicians.

    I wish the dems had acted like this to the idiots that Armey et al bussed around to disrupt their town halls last year.

    But, oh…wait….then there would have been posts here saying they were shutting down the right of we the people to disagree.

    Chris, You obviously did not go to the Courteney Town Hall in Montville. There was no busing of anyone but the Yellow shirt "Reform Healthcare Now" crowd. By the questions asked, about 85% were against the bills for Healthcare. All questioners were polite and had facts and figures to back up their questions, like when Courteney said there was no competition for health Ins. policies and one guy showed him 75 plans he got off the computer for himself. Courteney to his credit said, "I didn't know there were that many policies!" That's right when you hang out in Washington, you don't know CT is the Insurance Capital of the World, or used to be.
