FILE - In this Sept. 27, 2011 file photo, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie speaks at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, Calif. Chris Christie insists he's not running for president, but he flies around the country giving speeches and raising Republican money with a sly smile. Donald Trump might run as an independent. And Sarah Palin gets air time by hinting she'll announce some decision soon. Welcome to the Big Tease, driven by a combination of publicity, old-fashioned ego and possible presidential ambitions down the road. (AP Photo/Jae C. Hong, File)
Chris Christie got laughs on the Letterman show last week when he showed up with a doughnut. I get what he was trying to do. People keep goofing on his girth, and a former White House doctor had just told CNN that if Christie were elected president, “I’m worried about this man dying in office.” So he figures that the best way to defuse the issue is to make light of his weight.
Yo, Chris Christie, governor of New Joisey, how ya doin'?
For whatever reason, you need cash. Pronto. Maybe there’s a hot date tomorrow night. Gotta get your hands on the new iPod Nano, “Battlestar Galactica” DVD box set or Ikea can’t-quite-pronounce-the-name-but-it’s-got-an-umlaut chair.
Reports suggest New Hampshire voters haven’t focused on the national politics invading their state yet, and it’s hard to understand why. Republican Presidential nomination hopefuls are visiting here as dutifully, hungrily and reverentially as Republican politicos at a private Koch Brothers seminar.
FILe - In this Feb. 16, 2012, file photo, Assemblyman Reed Gusciora D-Trenton, left, and Assemblywoman Bonnie Watson Coleman D-Mercer, congratulate each other as the bill sponsored by Rep. Gusciora legalizing same-sex marriages, passes and is the final Legislative approval for Marriage Equality at the State House in Trenton, N.J. The 42-33 vote sends the bill to Gov. Chris Christie. The Republican governor who opposes gay marriage had promised "very swift action" if the bill reached his desk. Christie and most Republican lawmakers want gay marriage put to a popular vote. Democrats say gay marriage is a civil right protected by the Constitution and should not be subject to referendum. The country that President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are vying to lead for the next four years is not quite the same as the one four years ago, not nearly the same as the one further back in time. On May 17, 2004, dozens of same-sex couples in Massachusetts took vows to become “partners for life” as the state became the first to recognize gay marriage despite the opposition of Romney, then governor. It has since become legal as well in Connecticut, Iowa, New Hampshire, Vermont, New York and the District of Columbia. Thirty-one states have passed measures aimed at banning gay marriage.

Let me get this straight, the Taliban, al-Qaeda, and Somali Islamic insurgents can torture, behead, burn and drag American military men on video but a bunch of Marines who have had to pick up the body parts of their I.E.D.-blown up buddies are in trouble for whizzing on some dead Taliban attackers? Sadly, our resident R.I.N.O. Senator, John ‘Last Hurrah' McCain whines that it ‘makes me so sad.' Will President Obama rise to the bait and ‘apologize' once again to the Muslim world?"
