Chris Christie: Whoring for GOP love

By Richard K. Barry

Just back from a couple of weeks sitting on a dock in Northern Ontario, with a stack of books. Now I'm trying to catch up to events. At the cabin we get a single channel using old-fashioned rabbit ears. And almost no high-speed Internet access. I know - living like animals. 

One of the first stories I came across is a piece in which New Jersey Gov. Christie mouths a bunch of right-wing platitudes in order to make himself palatable to the GOP faithful. Speaking to reporters at a National Governors Association gathering earlier today he said the following: Obamacare isn't working, Republicans should continue to bring up their opposition to same-sex marriage and, the Obama Administration is partly to blame for recent violence between Israelis and Palestinians because they "don't stand up for our friends." 

Clearly Christie hasn't yet given up the ghost. He's running for president in 2016, though he is toxic to so many conservatives that it's hard to imagine he actually has a shot at the GOP nomination.

Look, I'm not inside the guys head, and I really don't like the son-of-a-bitch, but he's the governor of a pretty blue Northeastern state and probably won't believe most of the shit he'll have to say to make Republicans trust him, which most will never do anyway. 

Go ahead, Chris. Sell whatever tiny piece of your soul there might still be left. It will be fun to see how low you'll go.
