From the very moment he donned that hideous Superfleece, embraced President Obama, and said and did all the right things he needed to do in the state of New Jersey following Hurricane Sandy to secure a sweeping reelection the following year (and it was sweeping), Governor Christie has been auditioning for the 2016 Republican nomination. His continued efforts at trying to burnish an image as a bi-partisan superhero--including his endless love fest with President Obama in Asbury Park and securing a handful of prominent democratic endorsements (excepting the ones he needed to shut down a major bridge for)--may work for the cameras and hacks in the lame-stream media. However, the republican party still speaks batsh*t as a second language and its increasingly deranged base have made 'primary' a verb. It's a good thing Christie is losing weight as he'll have to continue walking the fine line of pretending to give a crap about the state he supposedly governs, whilst ensuring his actions are in keeping with the deranged teabagger ilk.
