Woman Aroused by Chris Christie’s Factually Defective Budget Crusade


The old adage that "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" was validated once again yesterday at a town hall in Hopatcong, New Jersey, where a woman told Governor Chris Christie that "having a governor that is smart and that has the perseverance to do what's right is hot and sexy." We wonder if she'll change her mind after reading a Times report that Christie, in his perseverance, has frequently gotten his facts wrong.

New Jersey’s public-sector unions routinely pressure the State Legislature to give them what they fail to win in contract talks. Most government workers pay nothing for health insurance. Concessions by school employees would have prevented any cuts in school programs last year.

Statements like those are at the core of Gov. Chris Christie’s campaign to cut state spending by getting tougher on unions. They are not, however, accurate.

Or maybe that's even sexier. It's like he doesn't even care about "reality" because he's a sexy rebel.
