Chris Christie Brutally Won a Niceness Contest


Chris Christie is known for being, er, blunt. But he’s also a good politician who knows just when to turn that bluntness into charm in order to crush his opponent. When one of the questions in Tuesday night’s New Jersey gubernatorial debate asked candidates to say what they like about each other, State Senator Barbara Buono, his Democratic opponent, made a crack about how he’s good on late-night television. Then Christie absolutely destroyed with praise of her ability as a mother and public servant. Vicious.
