Christie & King pull a Bulworth!
The term “pulling a Bulworth” refers to a situation in which a politician honestly says what’s actually on his mind, regardless of the backlash from media or special interests. Whether it’s expressed as frustration, an angry response or just backbone, pulling a Bulworth in today’s political environment can be dangerous. The weapons are threats from special interests, extortion from large donors, attacks by opponents, biased interpretations from partisan pundits, out-of-context sound bites repeated constantly by the media and manufactured spin intended to misinform an uninformed electorate.

Such is the case with Governor Chris Christie and Congressman Peter King who both challenged Boehner today. Christie and King show the kind of political courage that is too often lacking in modern politics. They stand against their party in order to fight for their constituents in the wake of Sandy relief efforts. I think that these men are great modern models of where the GOP needs to go. Back to the people!

About Commish Greg

I have had a life long love affair with the New York Yankees and baseball period. In my retirement I've discovered the hobby of sports game simulation through online gaming. I also have collected cards and memorabilia since I was 7 years old in 1961. I inherited from my uncle the collections starting from 1956 - 1960 and in 1961 I started my own collecting. I started an online league through Out Of The Park Development and their game OOTP16. The name of the league is the Alternate History Baseball League and it began in the 1954 baseball season when I and fifteen others held an inaugural draft and began the AHBL league in earnest. In my blog I will review the AHBL league and also mix some pop culture and historic events from real life. I hope you enjoy !
