    Flags at half staff for Whitney Houston ?

    Apparently Gov. Christie has asked for flags in New Jersey to be flown at half staff on Saturday in honor of Whitney Houston.
    I'm not sure how he considers a celebrity who slowly killed her self through years of substance abuse deserving of this recognition.

    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    “This is a disease that some people struggle with and conquer on a day-to-day basis, and some people succumb to it. And I don't believe that that should diminish the other contributions they've made in their life,” Christie said.

    If you're going to do it, at least say it's because of her phenomenal talent, not her drug use problems.

    He's trying to set a precedent, seeing as how he is a politician who is slowly killing himself through the years of Pizza Roll abuse.

    And they wanted this guy to run for President? I've kind of liked the guy, but this is dumb move.

    “This is a disease that some people struggle with and conquer on a day-to-day basis, and some people succumb to it. And I don't believe that that should diminish the other contributions they've made in their life,” Christie said.

    “I'm not saying that Whitney Houston is a role model. She's not a role model in that respect, in every aspect of her life. But what she is is a cultural icon in the history of this state,” he said. “I'm disturbed by people who believe ... because of her history of substance abuse, that somehow she's forfeited the good things that she did in her life. I just reject that on a human level.”

    I wouldn't have a problem with Illinois lowering their flags if Obama died and he was a drug user. Same for Bush.

    Good to see we've progressed to the part of the conversation where we compare apples to Volkswagens.

    I'm a bit tired today - are you trying to tell me that Whitney isn't as important as a President
