Breaking Clown Car Nooz

Republican New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is GETTING SERIOUS about running for president, because today he set up his fundraising PAC to receive massive donations from nightmare billionaires who will spend enormous amounts of money on terrible garbage candidates who promise to protect less of their money than they'll spend on presidential contests from taxation to help feed the poor:
After addressing a gathering of conservatives in Iowa over the weekend, the governor of New Jersey announced on his Facebook page on Monday morning that he was convening Leadership Matters for America "to get real leadership back in our country".

"America has been a nation that has always controlled events and yet today events control us," said a statement on the PAC's official website. "Why? Because leadership matters."

The PAC allows Christie, who will serve as its "honorary chairman", to raise funds and begin assembling a group of allies and aides who could form the basis for an official presidential campaign team.

...Mike DuHaime, a PR executive who was the lead strategist on Christie's successful gubernatorial races in 2009 and 2013, will serve as the PAC's senior adviser.

"We believe there's a void right now in leadership throughout the country," DuHaime told the [Wall Street Journal]. "We aim to support candidates who are willing to take on tough problems and make tough decisions."
Presumably like the tough decision to give the go-ahead to a PAC name that sounds like a riff on one of the country's most prominent lefty media criticism sites.

Anyway! This all sounds great, because we definitely need REAL LEADERSHIP back in AMERICA, and who better to do it than a mean bully jerkface who shuts down bridges out of spite and loves to just yell at people who say things he doesn't like. LIKE A LEADER.
