Oops! Did I say “fattest”? My bad. I meant “hottest”.
No doubt, a Sopranos-style faux tough guy attitude may well trump political principle in today’s Republican reality show environment. It is time – indeed, past time – for conservatives to openly revolt against the Rove/big donors/ McCain-Graham-Bush wing of the party. I can accept – sort of – that someone like Christie may be the best the party can do in New Jersey, for now. As a model for the party at large, however, he is manifestly unsuitable – not just for his squishy RINOism, but also for his tendency to let personal ambition and petty animus take precedence over the greater good. One John McCain is more than enough, thanks.
