Charlie Cook: I'd Pay To See Chris Christie Pull A Tea Partier's Lungs Out

Political anaylst Charlie Cook bills himself as "non-partisan and independent." But on today's Morning Joe Cook  couldn't curb his enthusiasm for Chris Christie.  Cook said of Christie that there is "testosterone coming out of every more pore in his body" and that Christie's attitude "inoculates him against being called a RINO, pantywaist liberal Republican."

For good measure, Cook said he would "pay money" to see Christie reach down the throat and pull the lungs out of Tea Party member daring to call Christie a liberal!  View the video after the jump.



The panel seemed amusedly shocked by Cook's enthusiasm.  

 

CHARLIE COOK: I think Chris Christie's personality lends itself a little bit more to beyond the New York-New Jersey metropolitan area. There is like testosterone coming out of every more pore in his body. I can't wait to see in Iowa or New Hampshire some Tea Party type calling him a liberal and Christie reaching down the guy's throat and pulling his lungs out. I can't wait to see that. I will pay money to see that.

MIKA BRZEZINSKI: Thank you, Charlie!

COOK: I think Christie's attitude kind of inoculates him to a certain extent from being like a pantywaist RINO, a liberal Republican.

CHUCK TODD: You're on a roll today!
