So Media have found one GOPer that sounds reasonable and now he's the figure head for all of conservatism. It's like a drop in a torrent current of insanity and somehow it'll reverse the gravitational pull towards the stupid.


Maybe you're confusing mass with actual force here.

Let's not let excitement for a rational Republican with fidelity to his constituents and principles cloud the reality that he is a severely conservative politician who, for example, feels that individual civil rights can be decided by majority votes.

Time is there a reason you're trying to shove Christie down our throats?  I know he's on your cover and you've got to do your marketing, but come on, why?  There are better Republicans than him you can showcase if you really care about their party.

Going through all of the pictures was interesting. Whether people will admit it or not, his weight is going to be an issue. There is a bias against heavy set people.
