Chris Christie only has a few more months left to get that 15 percent approval rating down to 0, and it appears his post-gubernatorial plans are going about as well as his political ambitions. It appears he will not be taking over Mike Francesa's spot on WFAN, after all.

Rumors swirled that Christie was in the running for the popular sports radio hosting gig long before he famously plunked himself on a shuttered beach in July, and last month Christie spent two days auditioning for the role. But over the weekend, the Daily News reported that WFAN was no longer considering Christie, and now Christie's insisting that actually he didn't want that stupid job, and he withdrew his name from consideration.

After considering the other options that I have been presented with for post-gubernatorial employment, I declined their request to do additional shows," Christie told in a statement. "I made station executives aware that while I would be happy to continue to fill in for Boomer when asked and when available, that they should no longer consider me as a candidate interested in any job at WFAN when I leave the governorship."

He added, "I made that clear to them prior to leaving for my family vacation two weeks ago."

It's not clear what other "post-gubernatorial" options Christie's considering, but it's important to note that he rejected them, just like that time I rejected those dumb jerks at Harvard by not applying. Meanwhile, let's take a moment of silence to remember Christie's brief stint on WFAN, in which noted WFAN heckler Mike From Montclair called in to call Christie a "fat-ass" and a "bully." Christie responded by calling him a Communist.


Radio is truly our greatest medium.
