No, for real. The Democratic Governors Association did that.
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is to host a fundraiser for Governor Chris Christie.

That does not suit! How dare Mark Zuckerberg support someone he likes! Doesn’t he know he’s an evil Rethuglican? Punish! Punish like the wind! From the DGA:
Stop Zuck’s Christie Fundraiser!
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is hosting a fundraiser for right-wing Republican darling Chris Christie.
Sign the form at the right to tell Zuckerberg to cancel his fundraiser and stop funding Gov. Christie’s re-election campaign.
Stop Zuck! With exclamation point, because it’s totally nefarious and urgent. Also, right-wing? Geez Louise. They also posted to their Facebook page.

Bless your hearts.
Those who believe in freedom of thought and the diversity of ideas weigh in. Also, those who aren’t petty and puerile.

CLUCK CLUCK CLUCK-> MT @demgovsWe’re calling on Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg to cancel his fundraiser for Gov Christie.
— MoxieMom (@moxiemom) January 24, 2013
And this Twitter user wins with the best summation.
@demgovsZuckerberg can fundraise for whoever he wants, maniacs.

But the RGA comes up with the ultimate oh, snap.
We’re not surprised to see @demgovs more concerned with Zuckerberg than winning governors races. It’s why they only have 19 out of 50 govs.

Update, Friday, Jan. 25:
Aw, did the DGA chicken out?
Hmm. The DGA’s petition calling on Zuckerberg to cancel Christie fundraiser is no longer available. Cache: bit.ly/XAWsz6

Update: Well look at that. The DGA deleted the tweet linking the “Stop Zuck” petition. Too bad Twitchy is forever.
