TLP: Score One for the GovernorSeems that "Jersey Shore" just can't win with Chris Christie. The New Jersey governor blocked payment last year of an economic incentive for the MTV reality show. And now he's schooling Snooki in the basics of democracy.
On Tuesday, "Jersey Shore" cast member Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi took to Twitter to write, "I will not be voting for Chris Christie. Love always, the 'buffoons' from that degrading Jersey Shore show."Not that he sounds too upset about it.
Snooki called Christie "judgmental" and accused him of "calling us names when he's never met us."
On Thursday, Christie told the BioNJ crowd he's working hard to improve New Jersey's image, which he said was harmed by shows like Polizzi's.
"For far too long over the last decade, New Jersey was more of a punch-line on the late-night talk shows and other places, right?" he said. "You know, 'The Sopranos,' 'Real Housewives of New Jersey'. God forbid, 'Jersey Shore.'"
Christie, who declined to run for president and won't be up for re-election until next year, said he's heard about Polizzi's tweets.
"You see, this further reinforces my concern about these people," he said. "She lives in New York. She can't vote for me."
