Outta Control Whitney Worship: Pan-Muslim Christie Lowers the Flag for “Hero” Houston?! The Jokes

By Debbie Schlussel

I don’t know about you, but I’m long past sick and tired of the absurdly excessive Whitney Houston news and worship of what was essentially a crack whore who once had a great voice and a lot of talent.  I’m sure that Chris Christie chubby-chaser Ann Coulter will find a way to excuse the pan-Muslim, liberal Republican New Jersey Governor’s lowering the flag to half -staff for Houston, but it’s just appalling.  I’m completely with the mother of the fallen Marine who is angry about this.  This woman was no hero.  She wasn’t a soldier who died in the service of America.  She was a low-life who descended from great opportunity, talent, and success to drug addiction and a sleazy reality show.  I lamented her death on my site because I was once a fan.  But I mentioned her failings with equal zest.  And enough is enough.  It’s been nearly a week of this crap, already. Can’t we move on to the next whacked out celeb who dies of drugs? You know there’s more where that came from.

Crack is Whack . . . and so Is Chris Halal Chrispie-Creme

Check out this excerpt, below,  from my 2005 post about her and then-hubby Bobby Brown’s reality show, “Being Bobby Brown,” and then ask yourself if Chris Christie should have lowered the flag to half-staff for this whack-job.  Remember that at the time they filmed this show, their daughter, Bobbi Kristina, was only twelve years old but was the only relatively sane and mature person in the “family,” or, rather, the crack coven.  Some of the “highlights” of the show:

* Brown bragging how he once had to dig fecal material out of Houston. Sick, sick, sick! (He goes into more graphic detail than we will here.)

* When Houston and Brown go to their bedroom mid-day for sex, after Brown gets out of prison (for one of the following: violence, substance abuse, failing to pay child support for multiple out-of-wedlock kids), daughter, Bobbi Kristina, cries, “Let me in!” Brown doesn’t allow the daughter in, but does allow in the cameras.

And there’s much more. Read the rest.

The excessive praise of this woman and her beatification to sainthood by the media is ridiculous. And now Chris Chrispie-Creme is in on it, too. Christie’s excuse is that Houston is a “cultural icon of this state.” Hmmm . . . I wonder if the Governor of the home state of Ron Jeremy will use the same excuse when he dies (and please, no jokes about how Jeremy wouldn’t want the flag at half-staff). Um, she’s a “cultural icon” because people like Christie continue to give this tragic figure a hero’s honor, despite how she lived. Even Rick Santorum, for whom I now plan to vote in the Michigan Primary on February 28th, talked about her. It’s sad when Presidential timber sinks to wade into the Whitney morass, though he had a good take on it–that, sadly, celebrities are our new aristocracy and have too much impact on American society. Even sadder is that fame-seeking prosecutors are already looking to go after her doctors, just like with Michael Jackson. Doesn’t the addict ever bear any responsibility?

And, while we’re at it, I’ve noticed the dearth of good Whitney death jokes. Too soon? Not for me. On Monday, I asked my friend, movie critic and comedian Corey Hall, why I hadn’t heard any Whitney jokes. He told me it’s because comedians have to care one way or another about the topics they joke about, but that most of them couldn’t care less about her. Still I found a few on the web, most of which I can’t repeat here (because people will cry “racism!” or they are just too gross), except for this one:

Q: What do Whitney Houston and the Titanic have in common?

A: One cracked before going down, the other smoked crack before going down.

Ba-dum-bum. Ch-.

What are your best Whitney Houston jokes? And should a Governor of ANY state ever lower the flag to half-staff for an entertainer, especially Whitney Houston?

it’s true love when you de-fecalize your spouse… so romantic.

KIRCHE on February 16, 2012 at 1:03 pm

    Cocaine and cocaine based drugs cause constipation. She must have been a very heavy user for her husband to have to use a jackhammer on her ass.

    Jonathan E. Grant on February 16, 2012 at 1:17 pm

    Those distasteful details shouldn’t have been mentioned in public. There was a time when EVERYBODY knew that.

    Miranda Rose Smith on February 17, 2012 at 4:05 am

Of course, do you know what the paramedic said to the unconcious Whitney as he tried to revive her? “Houston, we have a problem.”

Jonathan E. Grant on February 16, 2012 at 1:18 pm

Debbie, she’s no hero. I don’t believe in celebrity worship and I’m sure Whitney Houston would not have wanted it.

Dignified remembrance is fine but let’s not go overboard.

I’m not going to speak ill of the dead. That’s between her and G-d.

Let her RIP.

Whitney Houston to star in her new film. The Bodybag. Pat, Greenwich

What’s black, lies on the floor, “Will Always Love You” and has white stuff around it’s nose?
A border collie.

Looks like Whitney Houston is cool again now that she’s just made the transition from mainstream to the underground.

Well Whitney, that’s one way to kick start your album sales…

Whitney Houston ended her life the same way she ended her songs.On a high note.

1963 – Whitney Houston
2012 – Whitney Houstoff.

Jonathan E. Grant on February 16, 2012 at 1:22 pm

What’s the difference between Whitney Houston and my piece of junk car?
At least my car can hit 50.

Tragic news from the music industry “Jedward and Bieber still alive!”

What’s six inches long and won’t be getting sucked on Valentines day? Whitney Houston’s crack pipe.

Jonathan E. Grant on February 16, 2012 at 1:25 pm

    I just Googled for “Jedward.”

    skzion on February 16, 2012 at 3:07 pm

The flag should never be lowered for an entertainer. I get ill every time I hear that Elvis Presley is/was “The King”. They are people who make tons of money with natural talent. That is all.

Whats the difference between Amy Winehouse and Whitney Houston?

About 204 days.

Why did Whitney Houston snort Splenda?

She thought that it was Diet Coke

Jonathan E. Grant on February 16, 2012 at 1:27 pm

LOL, Kirche is first again, Yay! 😀

What a great post. It’s easy for me to rip into Houston because I was never a fan and it is nice to read that her music touched so many (and our music memories stamp our personal memories) but this beatification is just retarded. I can’t wait until it stops.

And I loved the Whitney joke.

Here is what I am thinking about though because I was 100% nonplussed when I saw what happened when “Wacko Jacko” went down. What bothers me most about the reaction to his death is that most people have re-written his history and how many people avoided him like the plague around the time of his druggy death.

The April before he was cactus (dead) he promoted the “This Is It” tour and the media and everyone else shrugged and laughed and really didn’t care (except the Jacko fanatics…whom I am still not sure if they are paid participants). When he died, it was like the “King was dead” and the t-shirts and the music was everywhere. That did not jibe with how he was looked at and treated BEFORE he died. Even the DAY before he died!

And now we will be forced to watch his IVF daughter (whose Mum is the weirdo nurse of the weird and gay dermatologist bio dad) have a music career. Great. Worked so well for Lisa Marie Pressley.

It floors me to see people act as if his career was NOT in trouble and that it had taken a hit due to pedophilia charges (I happen to believe he was a pedophile). No one mentions that anymore. But I can’t forget what the TRUTH was and is.

Before Whitney married Bobby Brown there were rampant lesbian rumours of her friendship with Robyn Crawford. I remember those back in the day but wondered where the hell they came from. Now, as an adult who knows the media so much better, I know that more times than not there is smoke first than a fire.

Another reason why good Conservatives should not follow Ann Coulter’s lead and love Chris Christie. He gets more and more cartoony everyday!

But more than anything else, this is just a piece of the rotting culture rotting on the vine…and falling off. It makes me sick.

Skunky on February 16, 2012 at 1:28 pm

    Skunky,I don t know that you ll read this reply/comment to your comment,I doubt you will,but you are so right about Coulter and I was a die hard fan of hers,buying all her books,I was going to throw them away,but then I thought..hum!! what if I sell them on ebay or amazon? thanks for the idea.

    Juan on February 18, 2012 at 12:52 am

Meanwhile, NYC and NJ have failed to give parades for the returning soldiers from Afghanistan and Iraq.

Whitney had great talent, but blew it (no pun intended). She, Jackson, Elvis, and others had life too good.

Jonathan E. Grant on February 16, 2012 at 1:31 pm

I am surprised that she did not lie in state in the US Capitol or the New Jersey Capitol.

Any truth to the rumor that Christie tried to eat the corpse?

Jonathan E. Grant on February 16, 2012 at 1:33 pm


    Lady in Northern Virginia on February 16, 2012 at 3:42 pm

    I can’t believe you said that but I did laugh.

    Lady in Northern Virginia on February 16, 2012 at 3:50 pm

Christie will never get a vote from me based on this decision alone. Lowering flags used to mean something. This is a mockery.

Her son carlo iii also used such and helped 2 other people to obtain a US tourist visa.

ronb on February 16, 2012 at 1:42 pm


    Why are you posting someone’s location information here? Your rant does not even have anything to do with the topic under discussion. This is not a personal grudge site. If you have a problem with the woman that you mentioned, you should go to the authorites before posting here.

    worry01 on February 16, 2012 at 7:42 pm

I can name three entertainers the Flag should have been lowered for:

Hedy LaMarr: (Brilliant work on algorithms during WWII; now forms the foundation of cell phone signal technology).

Lt. Audie Murphy (had movie career after WWII, starred in Red Badge of Courage).

And, of course, the Greatest Entertainer who served his country who did NOT become President: Brigadier General Jimmy Stewart, USAF, who served his country courageously as a bomber pilot in WWII, and after the war continued to serve, eventually reaching Flag Rank.

Not to mention Clark Gable, of course, and, finally:

The Great Ed Wood, Jr. stormed Tarawa beach wearing women’s underclothes beneath his Marine uniform.

Occam's Tool on February 16, 2012 at 2:36 pm

    I had no idea about Hedy Lamarr, OT.

    skzion on February 16, 2012 at 3:06 pm

      Yes, Skzion. There is a brand new book out that details that aspect of her life. It’s called “Hedy’s Folly: The Life and Breakthrough Inventions of Hedy Lamarr, the Most Beautiful Woman in the World”

      The author is Richard Rhodes

      Hollywood, that sounds typical of that Buffoon O’Reilly trying to co-opt both sides of the argument. He’s just a big, arrogant, hypocritical, splotchy old blob. What a gas bag! I remember when he said it would be the end of both VH-1 and Pepsi Co. Wish he didn’t get the ratings he gets. I stopped watching his lame show after LoofahGate and I knew I was correct when I heard (years later) his take on ZerObama. He should be held accountable once people realize electing Zero was the death of America.

      CS, that was interesting on John and Ken. I am not a fan of those two BUT what they said was correct. PC. The gift that keeps on giving. Thanks Liberalism!

      (That picture of the late Whitney Houston is creepy. I have never looked that bad waking up in the morning. What a scary life she led!!!!)

      Skunky on February 16, 2012 at 7:01 pm

    Let’s not forget Julia Child or Ernie Pyle. Ernie did not report from the security of a hotel room with a scotch and soda in hand as do the so-called “Embed’s” of today. Ernie was right there on the front lines and lost his life – in combat – on Okinawa where he is buried. He was on a mission with the troops on the front lines when his jeep was raked with machine gun fire. He dove into a ditch…..and raised his head to see what was happening……was hit by a single, fatal bullet. Can any of you imagine the pond scum of today – Lauer, Gregory, Williams, Blitzer, Pelley, etc., even getting within miles of a combat zone? Never happen.

    Herbster on February 17, 2012 at 4:53 pm

I ve dislike Christi from day one,this only adds to my dislike of him,Coulter as far as I m concerned has lost whatever credibility she had left,now she is jist a mindless Romney/Christi drone….which makes me wonder if it will reflect on her next book sales,I do have all her booksbut I m thru with her being an idiot.

Juan on February 16, 2012 at 2:38 pm

“Chris Chrispie-Cream” – LMAO

CornCoLeo on February 16, 2012 at 2:38 pm

The 3 worst slum cities I have seen in my life – Newark, Camden and Trenton , New Jersey. Christie needs their votes. Tell them what they want to hear. Christie is a politician – end of story.

bill on February 16, 2012 at 2:43 pm

    Bill, that was my thought too. Chris Christie is pandering to the blacks in New Jersey. Period. I can’t believe he’d bother, because they aren’t ever going to vote for him anyway. I heard a woman who called in to Rush Limbaugh’s show the other day complaining about the flag thing and I kept wanting him to call a spade a spade, as it were, and admit that Christie is just race-pandering. He tap-danced around it though. It’s disgusting that this woman who had the world at her feet threw it all away to become an “authentically black” junkie. So many of the articles about her say that she was always upset because at the height of her fame blacks said she wasn’t “black enough.” So she hooked up with a ghetto bad-boy who dragged her down into the sewer with him. Blew a $100 MILLION fortune on drugs. Well, I guess she’s authentically black now.

    DG in GA on February 17, 2012 at 5:58 pm

BTW I was atacked by a reader on this site for showing simpathy to Houston dying bc I didn t see her as a role model nor hero,she was very much the oposite of both,with out getting into the manusha of the how s and why s that is the bottom line.

Juan on February 16, 2012 at 2:46 pm

There was a picture on FB a few days ago, showing Charley Sheen in dark glasses, yelling ‘Damnit, Whitney, only I can do that many drugs and live!’

Lana Skibitiansky on February 16, 2012 at 2:50 pm

I never liked her songs or her acting. Never. That being said, even if she did somehow inspire people or something via her voice, it’s still a disgrace that the fata$$ RINO Christie would abuse his executive privilege simply to pander to the State’s crack-whore fans.

DS_ROCKS! on February 16, 2012 at 2:55 pm

Well, when you think of what else New Jersey has (or had) going for it.

I can’t agree that WH was a crack whore (at least not in the usual sense). But she was not a war hero either. No ships should be named for her, and no flags put at half-mast.

S: I think Frank Sinatra was from New Jersey. I doubt they lowered the flags for him. DS

skzion on February 16, 2012 at 3:05 pm

    Good point, Debbie.

    skzion on February 16, 2012 at 5:40 pm

    I heard somewhere that NJ did lower the flags for Frank. At least he did die at Pearl Harbor!

What was Whitney Houston’s favorite cereal? Special K.

(Okay, some of you who know a little about drugs will get this one).

Jonathan E. Grant on February 16, 2012 at 3:20 pm

Here’s a good one. O’Reilly has been making the rounds slamming the media for not taking responsibility and saying the truth about Houston’s death. He has been banging the personal responsibility drum, good. Then he says this morning that Christie ordered flags at half-mast for Houston, and said “that’s appropriate”!!!!!!!!!!!!! This from a guy who is supposed to stand up for veterans!!!!!!!!!

Hollywood on February 16, 2012 at 3:46 pm

I agree 100% that no flags should be lowered for Whitney. I also agree 100% that she was a very troubled individual. However, she was a human being and I find the jokes and comments on here to be in extremely poor taste. Have a little respect for the dead…I’m unsubscribing

Caroline Lounsbury on February 16, 2012 at 4:19 pm

    Dear Ms. Lounsbury: The jokes about that poor woman are cruel and tacky and you are right. Your posting was a reminder to us all.

    Miranda Rose Smith on February 17, 2012 at 4:09 am

Anyone who lives in SoCal will be shocked as the great John & Ken were suspended and almost sh*t-canned for making comments about the whole Whitney Houston coverage. It went something like this:

, “She’s been cracked out for 20 years, and we heard how obnoxious she was these parties, I mean, she’s doing handstands, she’s babbling like an idiot, running around … she’s a mess … She’s been doing this for 20 years…. So, how much of a pain in the ass do you think she was? Can you imagine, you’re CLIVE DAVIS, and she has not been –she has not had her head screwed on right for 20 years? At some point you’re just sick of it all, and so is everybody else in the industry, all her friends and hangers on, everybody who knew had to deal with her, it’s like, ‘ah, Jesus, here comes the crack ho again, what’s she gonna do; Oh, look at that, she’s doing handstands next to the pool. Very good, crack ho, nice.’ After a while, everybody’s exhausted. And then you find out she’s dead. It’s like, ‘really … took this long?'”

I guess the big record industry people got to Clear Channel.

Whoe! When entering through these swinging doors be prepared to dodge a figure occasionally coming flyin’ out backwards; inside,watch out for bottles flying through the air. Enter here with sleeves rolled up, wearing not your best suit of clothes. These here comment threads have the flavor of yesteryear’s barrooms, upholdin’ the finest traditions of the great old Western movies. This ain’t no sissy salon, pardner; this here’s a saloon of the proudest order.

Sorry Ann but you have been up in Yankee Country too long.

Confederate South on February 16, 2012 at 4:45 pm

Probably the one thing that Jimmy Carter ever got right was the brevity of his comments upon the death of Elvis Presley. I vaguely remember him on the news that evening saying something to the effect of: “We have lost a true American original today. He shall be missed” and that was the end of it. No flags at half-mast in D.C, Memphis or Tupelo (Presley’s birthplace).

While his fans obviously considered it a time of mourning (they lined up for miles to get one last look at his corpse), no branch of the American government at the national or local level declared it to be anything other than a day where a little extra crowd control would be required in Memphis.

And for what it’s worth, Elvis WAS in the army for a couple of years, although it was between any major wars (1958-1960), so obviously, he never saw any combat.

Incidentally, both Jimi Hendrix and Jerry Garcia were also in the army for a couple of years. Like Elvis, it was in between Korea and Viet Nam (1960-1963) so they also never saw any combat, but still, no flags were lowered when either of them died because of their substance abuse issues.

Irving on February 16, 2012 at 6:12 pm

She was a woman who had talent and earned a great deal from it. Whitney Houston had absolutely no excuse for falling through the floor the way she did. This sort of nonsense occurred when Amy Winehouse self-destructed some time ago. There was no heroism involved wiht that woman’s death either. Houston and Winehouse had become virtual characters of celebrity drug addicts before they died. They were given much, and had the prospect of achieving even more in their lives, but they both thought that taking tokes on a crackpipe came first. Why should I celebrate their insane decisions by honoring their deaths as if they were war heroes? Governor Christie berates the woman who plays Snookie(Nicole Polizzi)as being an absurd, while engaging in conduct like honoring Whitney Houston as if she were a dead warrior. Is lowering the flag for a celebrity drug addict less degrading for New Jersey than Snookie getting a machine tan? Would Christie like to answer that one?

worry01 on February 16, 2012 at 7:35 pm

“And should a Governor of ANY state ever lower the flag to half-staff for an entertainer … ?”

Only if the celebrity had served in the military. Occam’s Tool on February 16, 2012 at 2:36 pm has listed four who qualify. Whitney Houston by this criteria does not qualify. Therefore, Christie should not have done this for her.

JeffE on February 16, 2012 at 10:52 pm

Pretty glaring is the difference between all the guilty white fools trying to look INCLUSIVE by fussing about Houstons death. Especially considering the military casualties in the same time frame getting next to NO ATTENTION.

samurai on February 17, 2012 at 12:00 am

I think it’s ridiculous that any state would lower the American flag to half mast for a celebrity. Though I’m curious where was all this outrage last year when Crispy Creme did this for Clarence Clemmons?

Allen on February 17, 2012 at 4:38 am

How many of our troops have died this month? Can anyone out there tell us?? When will this country gets its priorities straight, is it possible??? One thing for sure, it doesn’t start at the top in our country. And maybe that says all you need to say to why this country is like a river flowing in the wrong direction, eventually gravity wins. It’s the ride down that will be so telling, get your life jackets ready people, because this November could be when you better be ready to strap it on. Please vote in November, and in my old state the saying is “and vote often”, ha. Just remember, there is only one state with a credit downgrade in the US history…and one of its residents now sitting in our White House is putting this country on the same type of course…are we stupid here or what??

Mike C on February 17, 2012 at 9:43 am

Deborah-your post about Whitney is despicable. Yes, she was on drugs and fell from grace, a long time ago. It is tragic, people loved her, including her mother. How do think it must feel to lose a daughter that way. Think of how Amy Winehouse’s parents & family felt. Do you NOT have any decency? I like your blog, but noticed how TMZ like you are in your bile. I am a Republican, and think highly of Reagan, but this goes below the belt. Calling her a crack whore. Do you think she truly sucked dick for crack? She must have done some despicable things to others (and herself), but your post is mean-spirited and beneath you. A woman of your talents and beauty should be better than this, and I am a person from Metro Detroit, that’s half Jewish, not too shabby. Shame on you Schlussel, Steve in White Lake, Michigan

Steve Epps on February 17, 2012 at 10:21 am

I have to say that Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe and a host of other celebrities are remembered more for their entertainment careers than their deaths and contributing factors. (Rap and rock and roll stars like Jim Morrison and Tupac Shakur not so much because those were primarily counterculture figures as opposed to mainstream ones.) So, the fawning over Whitney Houston is simply business as usual. The same happened with Heath Ledger, who was even given an Oscar for playing the Joker in “Batman”, the first – and last – time time such a movie has been so honored, and no, had he not overdosed he never would have even been nominated.

It is just how celebrity worship goes. (P.S. I hope that Rush Limbaugh – or any of his supporters for that matter – are among those making the Whitney Houston jokes because, well, who knows what would have happened to the guy had the feds not caught him, which forced him to get clean. And no, none of this “it was different with Limbaugh because it was prescription drugs not street drugs!” nonsense. It was prescription drugs that killed Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley and Ledger, and was likely prescription drugs that killed Houston … no cocaine was found in her hotel room. Studies show that 100,000 people die from prescription drug abuse annually.)

Gerald on February 17, 2012 at 10:52 am

If you are to grieve for someone. Than do it for Gary “kid” Carter. At least he was a good husband, father and ballplayer. He will surely be missed.

Glen Benjamin on February 17, 2012 at 10:53 am

Steve, apparently this is you’re first time commenting on this blog, instead of you pitying DS for lords knows what, over the weekend when this woman passed away, Debbie showed condolences to Ms. Houston and appreciated her talent, songs, etc. And so what if DS’s headline is “Crack Whore”, she has a point, this woman was a drug addict down the stretch in her life, so please spare us all you’re PC nonsense, and since you called yourself a “Republican”, you’re probably the same so-called conservatives who are Republicans attack and conspire Ms. Schlussel because she’s very talented, influentical, educated, successful, etc. You’re message sound more like a liberal & Democrat than a Republican who’s conservative.

“A nation is defined by its borders, language & culture!”

Sean R. on February 17, 2012 at 10:57 am

We have Many wonderful holidays in our country. We have PRESIDENT’S DAY where we lumped all President’s together so teachers and government workers could have another day off. How about a NATIONAL “DRUGGIE DAY?” The second Monday in August looks like a good day. Everyone can worship at the feet of whitney, winehouse, ….and any other celebutard who went beyone the great divide via overdose, suicide, – any unnatural cause. It would be a day for all drug dealers to run “Specials” like “Buy one rock of crack, get one free, or buy six and get a FREE crack pipe!” The possibilities are endless. Hallmark could get involved with whole new line of cards. The President could address a “Crack Breakfast” – no prayers allowed! CNN will have specials each year commemorating the first annual Druggie Day…..you know….like they do Katrina. Let’s get some ideas out there folks. Someone please call Sharpton and have him promote this on his TV program…….we could even find a way to tie in Tawana Brawley.

Wishing everyone a Whitney free day!

I’m with you Debbie. Enough is enough of the coverage of Whitney.It is becoming annoying. I’m and especially annoyed with that loud mouthed gas bag RINO Chris Christy’s pandering to New Jersey crack crowd by lowering the American flag half mast. Why does she deserve that honor when I’m sure that there are some heroic military personel from New Jersey that died in the previous wars that were fought. Why not do it for them. I guess they don’t rate it like a rich celebrity who crack piped her life away. I have to wonder also how far RINO groupie Ann Coulter is going to go to spin her second favorite politicians behavior. I’m sure that it won’t be too hard because I know both Vannity and Loofah Boy will give her time on their shows. She has become a big disappointment in her love for all things Romney.

ken b on February 17, 2012 at 11:42 am

ever notice how young so many from California in the “business” seem to die young in the yearly obits despite the sunshine and healthy lifestyles the Gold Coast offers.
Perhaps its the easy availability of Cocaine, and drug pushing doctors writing the old standbys like Vicodin (goes well with beer I heard) as if they were candy.
Yep, drugs are “California Candy” Whitney just one in a long line of those with too much money and time on their hands.
Take it easy on her. She was human and never went out of her way to hurt others as so many of her contemperary divas and dons do, or post mortem, did.
The Oscar should be replaced by a gold plated crack pipe, really!

Ron Wolf on February 17, 2012 at 12:13 pm

This is totally out of control and certainly sending the wrong message to today’s youth. Frankly I’m tired of all this BS.

Naomi R on February 17, 2012 at 12:17 pm

Jimmy Stewart was a national hero. He left his already booming movie career to serve in WWII, even though he was exempt. He flew over 27+ bombing missions over Germany, which often was a death sentence (Joseph Heller flew over 50). He was promoted to a high rank (I think General).

He never did crack.

As to the people who do not like Whitney jokes, well, the crackhead brought it on herself. Most jokes are in response to the treatment of her as some kind of hero. She was not. Nor is Christie.

Jonathan E. Grant on February 17, 2012 at 1:03 pm

Putting it all in perspective, the world still turns, the sun still rises in the east and I still have a job. For now.

What do they have to do with Whitney or Gov Christie? Absolutely nothing.

My life is much better than both these people combined. The end.

    Maya has earned the right. Her mother was a better singer than Whitney in my opinion and died from breast cancer not a drug overdose. Remember Minnie Ripperton?

I think her immoral life-style was a joke enough. Predictable, obnoxious, pathetic. The only tragedies are the “motherless” child (if not before defacto, now at least she’s officially motherless) and the wasted talent of a promising artist.

Drug addiction is like maths, isn’t it? Do we get shocked and mourn the fact that 2 + 2 = 4?

What, lowered American Flags?
…B-b-b-but it’s Black History Month (the mentions of which have been conspicuously absent in liberal media). They’re probably afraid of making an analogy between a token month and a token Presidential term. Thank you, Chris Christie, for reminding me!

A couple of things here. One I’m a Vet who respects the Flag. The Flag can be flown at half mast for many purposes. You do not have to be a military vet to receive the honor. If the city hall in your home town wants to fly the Flag at half mast in your rememberance because you contributed greatly to the town in some way, they can. Usually happens for local celebs, local politicians, local veterans or well known and loved members of the community who were very patriotic examples to the community. If you have a flagpole in your yard you can fly it half mast if any member of your family dies. Now the State House can do it for any they feel contributed greatly to the State(usually needs to be voted on in the state house)and that just means they authorize all government facilities to fly half mast within the State. To authorize it nationally takes a vote by US Congress. Military bases are generally allowed to go half mast for members stationed at their base who have died(usually under the CO’s discretion). Now since she was from Jersey, He is allowed to authorize the half mast flying within the state of New Jersey to honor her even if it was because she was a famous singer. It does not go against the code. Should he have? Eh…I don’t really care. If it was against the code, I’d care. It wasn’t, so I don’t. It was their choice. If Zero tried to do it Nationally, I’d say h3ll no!! If you want to fly your own Flag at half mast for her, go ahead it’s your choice.
