Politico...  Christie is getting the McCain treatment.

They left out that Christie can either float over the Thanksgiving Day parade, or wave from behind the reindeer at the end of it.

The comparison to Giuliani would matter if we were talking about the next mayoral race for NYC mayor, but we're not.

Fairly objective analysis. The test for Christie is gaining acceptance from socons in Iowa. If he can jump that hurdle, the rest is doable.

How nice:  a little group in a little state get to decide who will be the candidate for everyone else in the country.

I don't like Christie at all, and don't compare him to anyone. Actually, I don't want to compare my choice to anyone, but  can accept him on his merits that closely resemble my own. And, I want someone that can lead and not allow himself to be bullied by either party.

The media - and a lot of Faux Conservatives - are going to be really unhappy if the blimp keels over from a coronary.

I thought he had surgery to lose weight? He looks like he is gaining it back. I think he is a grandstander, with more show than go.

The NE media may love him, but in fly-over country that brash personality isn't going to play well for an extended period of time.   Right now the thing I'm most looking forward to is the debates between Hillary and Joe Biden - I hope he pulls the crap on her he did on Paul Ryan.

I saw something today that said more and more it looks like Faux-ca-hauntus is going to run.  Que the popcorn - Biden (I'd bet money on him running), Hillary and the fake from MA in a debate.....  just shoot me now,

When has that ever been different?
