  •  So remind me why Christie is an asshole? (1+ / 0-)

    I admit I haven't followed closely, but in every instance I've seen, his response to Sandy and the nonpartisan nature of his response have appeared to me not only earnest and inexhaustible but exemplary, exactly what we wish we could expect of all politicians -- maybe the best thing to happen for New Jersey's rep since Jon Stewart.

    As I once, hopefully but misguidedly, suggested to friends at the beginning of Dubya's term, sometimes the demands of office spur an ordinary man to rise above his limitations, occasionally even to greatness.  Obviously Bush let me down crushingly on that wary false hope, but it strikes me that Christie may be the very embodiment of the principle.

    We need good Republicans, though preferably as a constructive minority.
