Worse Finger in the Face: Chris Christie or Jan Brewer?

It looks like Governor Jan Brewer's not the only one to utilize the ol' finger-in-the-face technique to try to get the upper-hand in an argument.

Whereas Brewer stuffed her finger in the face of the President of the United States, Christie shoved his in the face of another menace to society -- a schoolteacher.


According to Slate's David Weigel, who took the Christie photo, the teacher asked Christie why he called New Jersey schools "failure factories." Chrstie responded that "he was sick of 'you people,'" and the two bickered about school funding.

Brewer's changed her story on why her finger was in President Obama's face, so we're just left with the photo.

Which one do you think is a force finger in the face?

Brewer for sure, she's unbearably embarrassing to us sensible Arizonans.

Is there any comparison, really? Unlike Christie's who was at least three feet away from the teacher, Brewer's shriveled-up index finger was point-blank in O's face. Secret Service officers should have wrestled her to the ground.


At the time of Brewer's famous book selling finger wag, the D.O.J. had just decided not to indict her for her involvement in defrauding Social Security of $75,000.00 to reward her Knife Point RAPIST Son while he served out his sentence.

The D.O.J. "Granted Brewer Amnesty" for the Jail time she deserved, and I have heard that they simply allowed wonderful Law Breaking Jan to pay back the Stolen Funds to Social Security?!

The nasty "Finger Wag" was Brewer's way of thanking the Fed's for not "Enforcing the Law" against her skanky thieving arse.

Governor Brewer is a Criminal, and should face Justice for her Crime.

Let her wag her finger at her fellow Criminals behind bars.

Arizona doesn't have a governor. It has a State Nag. (Congrats to Mr. Brewer, whoever he may be. If I had something like that like a wife, there WOULD be domestic violence. And I take great pride in the fact that I have never touched a woman in anger.)

It's rude to do to anyone.  Bad enough to a voter, a schoolteacher but the President of the United States!!! No, Jan wins hands down.


No, the finger goes out to both Hendley and Lemons. Thumbs up to Brewer and Christie.

Just two ill mannered Republicans showing their ignorance. Jan wins because she's the ugliest of the two.

Robert, I actually like Christie. He's not a mentally sick, bat-shit Republican.
