Jerry Brown Challenges Chris Christie to Fitness Contest

Filed under: General,Morons — Patterico @ 1:34 pm

I hereby challenge the fattest guy I can think of to a fitness contest!

“I’ve slowed down a little bit, but I have to tell you — I ran three miles in 29 minutes two nights ago,” Brown said last week. “I hereby challenge Gov. Christie to a three-mile race, a push-up contest and a chin-up contest. Whatever he wants to bet, I have no doubt of the outcome.”

Brown says he is responding to Christie calling him an “old retread” — and willfully misinterprets this as an attack on Brown’s fitness, so he can take a cheap shot at Christie’s weight.

Once you see that Brown’s excuse for this is trumped-up, Brown’s gambit seems pretty amusing. He’s taking the most out-of-shape guy he can find in politics and challenges him to a fitness contest. That would be like Christie, a great speaker, issuing a debate challenge to the stupidest guy in politics. (Which is Joe Biden.)

Proud, proud I am to be a Californian with Governor Moonbeam in office.

  1. U.S. to Greenland: I hereby challenge you to a military conflict!

  2. Christie should suggest alternate physical tests:

    1. Leg press
    2. Wrestling
    3. Tug of War

  3. We got Grandpa Simpson for a governor! What could possibly go wrong?!?!

  5. “I ran three miles in 29 minutes two nights ago,” Brown said last week.

    Brown should do our state’s taxpayers a big favor… face west, start running and keep running, come Hell or high water. And when he can’t run any more, he must start swimming…

    Colonel Haiku (d96bbb)

  6. I know how he can improve his time:
    Do all of his running in the fore-closed neighborhoods of Stocton – without his Praetorian Guard.

  7. AD, where would he get water? They’ve turned that all off to the upper San Joaquin. For a bait fish.

  8. Jerry Brown’s challenge of physical fitness to Chris Christie is so typical of lefties to have a contest about anything other than the actual policies and the record. The state of California is going off the fiscal cliff, yet Jerry Brown wants to spend time publicly discussing gym class with a Governor of a state, three thousand miles away.
    And speaking of crazy challenges by California Governors whose last name is Brown, Jerry’s father, Governor Pat Brown, famously told a group of young primary school-age chidren that they shouldn’t ever forget that it was an actor who murdered Abraham Lincoln ! (That was an attempt to suggest that his opponent, Ronald Reagan, might be ‘inclined’ to be a bad man, if not an outright assassin.)

    Speaking of challenges, Senator Dianne Feinstein got out of her chair and walked away from an interview (on camera) when a reporter recently asked her why she refuses to debate GOP challanger Elizabeth Emken.

    The reporter said, “Even the LA Times has editorialized that you should debate her.”

    Maybe Jerry Brown should challenge Dianne Feinstein to demonstrate the physical fitness required to show up for some debates with Elizabeth Emken.

  9. Since Moonbeam is but a spectre (or is he a god in his own mind?), he doesn’t need water – and I wouldn’t stop to pi$$ on him if he was burning.

  10. “…it was an actor who murdered Abraham Lincoln…”

    And, the CA-GOP responded with a bumper sticker:

    “If it’s Brown – Flush It!”

  11. How could he have left this behind in his rear view mirror?!?!

  12. And then he can challenge Christie to a contest to see who can piss away more taxpayer money in a given year. Or who counted on Facebook share sales (and tax on the gains) as part of budget planning. Keep your eye on the important things Gov. Brown….yeah right.

  13. I’ll bet Brown isn’t that fast with Christie sitting on him

    SteveG (831214)

  14. Brown will need that speed when the voters finally figure out what he’s done to us.

    Roland (5ff18d)

  15. Maybe Cristie should offer Brown a race to see who can balance the budge better. You know, something kind of supposed to be related to their job…

  16. Who would become governor if Moonbeam became incapacitated or died from, say, over exertion?

    Patricia (e1d89d)

  17. Brown will need that speed when the voters finally figure out what he’s done to us.

    You overestimate the intelligence of the typical California voter, especially those in the major metro areas.

  18. “I’ve slowed down a little bit, but I have to tell you — I ran three miles in 29 minutes two nights ago,” Brown said last week. “I hereby challenge Gov. Christie to a three-mile race, a push-up contest and a chin-up contest. Whatever he wants to bet, I have no doubt of the outcome.”

    Well, that should solve California’s fiscal woes.

    I mean, if Gov. Moonbeam can’t beat a fat Jersey boy in a physical contest, then California will fall into the sea.

    You people elected this guy? No offense to Pat and other hostages in the Golden State.

  19. bench press, pull down, leg presses — I think Christie wins those.

    john b (6e570e)

  20. Don’t look aroung Jerry, but you’re the one we’re laughing at.

    The wet eyes are for you star-crossed citizens.

    gary gulrud (dd7d4e)

  21. This next year municipal bond interest rates go thru the roof. Just watch them this October when Harrisburg PA defaults.

    gary gulrud (dd7d4e)

  22. It boggles the mind that he is back in office. Can he really be the best CA’s political systems can do?

    Pigilito (9208f3)

  23. Man stands on one leg and asks another, “Can you do that?” And the other man says, “No, but any duck can.”

  25. anything other than the actual policies and the record

    yup

    Dustin (73fead)

  26. Here is the challenge that someone — anyone — ought to send to Jerry Brown:

    Governor Brown, you are betting your entire economic platform on the idea that voters will approve your initiatives to raise income and sales taxes. You have claimed that the state will be forced into drastic cuts if the tax measures fail. Given that your stated rationale for running for governor in 2010 was that you were a seasoned pro who could get things done in a technocratic and nonpartisan way, would you be willing to declare here and now that if the voters of California reject your tax increases, you will opt not to run for reelection in 2014 and will retire from politics once and for all?

    After all, if Califorians don’t trust Jerry Brown’s economic plans then there really isn’t any reason for him to continue as governor.

  27. I wouldn’t stop to pi$$ on him if he was burning.
    Comment by AD-Restore the Republic/Obama Sucks! — 9/9/2012 @ 2:09 pm

    I would.

    Hell, even if he wasn’t burning . . .

    Icy (ae483e)

  28. Every ones body deteriorates with age but, usually they get some wisdom with the years. Brown clearly missed that boat, his ideas are same old, same old.

    dunce (15d7dc)

  29. and a chin-up contest

    – Hell, Christie’s already a chin up on Brown.

    In fact, he’s two chins up, if you count the fact that Brown has none.

    Icy (ae483e)

  30. Christie should respond by challenging Brown to a fitness for office contest.

    Icy (ae483e)

  31. If that was the standard in Sacramento, the place would be a ghost-town.

  32. How about we have an election contest: Christie vs Brown for California Governor.

    Kevin M (bf8ad7)

  33. ‘”I ran three miles in 29 minutes two nights ago,” Brown said last week.’

    That would have been great news for California, if only Moonbeam had been standing two miles from the Nevada border when he started running.

    Dave Surls (46b08c)

  34. Moonbeam can’t be any worse than Deceipt them all Patrick of Mass.

    mg (44de53)

  35. I say Christie should say, fine I am ready for this contest as soon as you can show me the actual moonbeams and fairy farts you are using to balance your budget. Oh and also can I have one of your magical unicorns?

    TexasMom2012 (cee89f)

  36. Meh – we don’t elect people primarily for physical fitness. Christy should challenge Brown to a ‘fiscal responsibilty’ challenge.

    Brent Glines (f1a217)

  37. I doubt Brown would challenge him to a real contest, such as an open debate. Or the Thunderdome, where two men enter, one man leaves.

    MostlyRight (4f90a6)

  38. hello!,I like your writing very so much! share we communicate more approximately your post on AOL? I require an expert on this area to solve my problem. Maybe that is you! Looking ahead to peer you.
