Early Wednesday morning, Nicole Polizzi — known to legions of reality TV fans as “Snooki” from Jersey Shore, or, “the one who was arrested after being drunk on a beach in the middle of the day” –sent out a tweet voicing her non-endorsement of New Jersey governor Chris Christie:
“I will not be voting for Chris Christie. Love always, the ‘buffoons’ from that degrading Jersey Shore show.”
The only problem? Chris Christie is not running for President. He has, however, hit the campaign trail as one of the most vocal supporters of Mitt Romney. The Governor recently mentioned his distaste for the show during a visit to the south of the state:
“They parachute in these New Yorkers from Staten Island and Poughkeepsie into Seaside Heights and try and make America think they are Jersey kids,” Christie said. “I tell (New York Gov. Andrew) Cuomo, ‘You can have them back anytime you want.’ “
Previously, he’s vetoed a $420,000 tax break for the MTV show, calling it “a project which does nothing more than perpetuate misconceptions about the state and its citizens.”
And he will continue to take a courageous stand against all manner of reality TV buffoonery. Besides, we’re pretty sure he’s more of a Deena guy.
