Chris Christie, lately seen smooching Hussein on the Jersey shore, is not reliable....

Too bad he didn’t get a chance to enjoy his well deserved retirement.

RIP.

I wonder what Robert “The Torch” Torricelli is up to now?

Creamy should bear in mind that Lautenberg was “Torched” into office, when contemplating an interim Sinator.

And not a moment too soon. That worthless SOB was one of the key players in the ongoing destruction of our fundamental rights.

Good riddance to a pro-baby murdering, commie, gun grabber. No telling how many babies and women were killed because of his progressivism.

Sorry, folks. But all I can say is “finally.” I can’t mourn this sad old Klingon. A collection of some of the really dangerous and stupid things this relic has done and said over the years is definitely in order.

There are no rules in New Jersey. I was just thinking, I wouldn’t want to be Mr. Lautenberg about now. Anyway, condolences to his family.

One shouldn’t speak ill of the dead but..... Lautenberg was a dinosaur lib on his second tour of the Senate. To call him somnambulent would be giving him too much energy. Of course the brain-dead and real dead voters in NJ saw fit to send him back to the Senate. Now let’s see whom Christie appoints as a fill-in till next year’s election.

““If a vacancy shall happen in the representation of this State in the United States senate, it shall be filled at the general election next succeeding the happening thereof, unless such vacancy shall happen within 70 days next preceding such election, in which case it shall be filled by election at the second succeeding general election, unless the governor of this State shall deem it advisable to call a special election therefor, which he is authorized hereby to do,” New Jersey law reads. “The governor of this State may make a temporary appointment of a senator of the United States from this State whenever a vacancy shall occur by reason of any cause other than the expiration of the term; and such appointee shall serve as such senator until a special election or general election shall have been held pursuant to law and the Board of State Canvassers can deliver to his successor a certificate of election.”

I suspect that the death was expected for a while. That is why Obama has been sucking up to Christie. Obama wants veto rights over anybody that Christie selects. I’m sure Christie is tripping over himself trying to find someone who he believes will support Obama.

Who’s the oldest member of the Senate now? Dianne Feinstein I assume? She turns 80 in a few weeks.

I never agreed with his politics and it is my hope that he repented his crimes against the Lord before his death. May our Good Lord rest his soul.

Klingons have a warrior’s honor.

Lautenberg was a Socialist.

Big difference.

Here's his voting record, per ontheissues.org. From one end to the other, he was firewall liberal all the way.

Condolences to Lautenberg's family, but I sure as hell won't miss him.
