ELECTION 2012

Poll: Christie Least Scary, Fattest GOP Contender

Poll: Christie Least Scary, Fattest GOP Contender
Gov. Chris Christie: New Jersey's Howard Taft

TRENTON (CAP) - New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has been named the "least scary" potential GOP presidential contender in a USA Today/Gallup poll, with most other Republican hopefuls finishing at "genuinely frightening" or above.

Pressure on Christie to enter the race has escalated since last week's GOP debate, where every candidate on the stage induced feelings of "panic," "alarm" and/or "sheer terror" among a majority of viewers, according to the poll.

The overall poll results broke down as follows: Christie rated "somewhat scary," with Ron Paul finishing "pretty darn scary," John Huntsman, Bruno Tonioli, Rick Santorum and Herman Cain rating as "genuinely frightening," Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney as "intensely frightening" and Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann and Rick Perry as "the scariest [expletive] thing I've ever seen in my life."

Fueling the fear factor, apparently, is President Barack Obama's dwindling approval ratings. Polling shows that if the election were held today, every one of the above-mentioned possible GOP candidates would defeat him handily, as would several dead people - including both Gerald Ford and Jesse Helms - and some inanimate objects, like rocks and chairs.

"With every point that he goes down, the likelihood that one of those crazies gets into office goes up," noted poll respondent Larry Critchendon of Newark, N.J., a longtime conservative voter who nonetheless said the entire slate of GOP contenders "makes my blood run cold, like the end of The Blair Witch Project."

"At least Christie seems like he wouldn't bring about the downfall of civilization, probably," said Critchendon. "At least not right away."

The poll also found that Christie was by far the largest of all the GOP contenders. "Well ... He's a fat dude," noted Critchendon.

Glomming on to the poll results almost immediately, the newly founded Born to Run Party (BRP) is "this close" to recruiting Christie and rock superstar Bruce Springsteen to anchor a 2012 presidential ticket, said party founder Mac Christiansen of Asbury Park, N.J.

Originally founded in 2009 as the American Populist Party, with a mission of appealing to the country's growing independent center, Christiansen said the name change and a Christie/Springsteen ticket would imbue the BRP with "some star power" and "hopefully enough donations to redesign our website," which currently looks like it was developed by a college intern in 1997.

Springsteen held a press conference yesterday, presumably to accept or decline the nomination, but after someone in the last row repeatedly shouted "Play Thunder Road!," Springsteen told the audience to "shut the [expletive] up" and left abruptly.

Christie, for his part, continued to insist that he'll remain in his current post, and current party, for the rest of his term.

"I'm sure any one of the current GOP contenders would make a fine president," he told USA Today. "Although Michele Bachmann is the scariest [expletive] thing I've ever seen in my life."

    After suggesting that learning a trade is a better career choice than an art history degree, President Obama has offered his apologies by delivering coffee and doughnuts to unemployed art history majors.

"My arms still hurt from the State of the Union," Fritz Gorman said. "And I swear Joe Biden just claps whenever he feels like it. Loser." «» Former first lady Hillary Clinton admitted to CAP News that she hasn't showered since 1996, a defensive mechanism she used to keep Bill away. "It was rough smelling that ripe for so long," she said. "But now that I'm 66, I use old lady perfume and that shit masks everything." «» Following his assertion that marijuana is no worse than alcohol, President Obama continued his comparison crusade by suggesting that eating gizzards is no worse than eating chitlins.

"Black people need to do better than that." «» Researchers at MIT have finished calculating President Obama's approval rating, which they say can be obtained by use of the imaginary number i.
