Harlan Coben, one of the thriller writers patronized by Glenn Beck, takes to the Times op-ed page today to let everyone know that there’s nothing more thrilling than getting a “big bearhug” from his childhood best friend and New Jersey Governor-elect Chris Christie (actually, hearing the Boss play all the tracks from Born to Run live in sequence is pretty thrilling, too). Now we know that all the times Jon Corzine was making fun of Chris Christie for being so fat, he was really just jealous that Christie gives better bearhugs. [NYT]
