Gotta Luv Chris Christie

I am glad I don't live in New Jersey or I might have to go back on my pledge to my dear mother that I would never vote for a Republican. Governor Chris Christie is simply one of the best politicians in memory, a man who is so comfortable in his own skin, when his opponent last year ran an ad that appeared to make fun of Christie's weight, Christie responded by calling on the opponent to "man up" and just call him "fat." Christie also had no problems admitting he was not ready to run for the presidency the other day.

But, the other day, going after a heckler at a rally for California's GOP gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman, Christie again showed why he may be the best, most easily likable, direct, straight-talking candidate in either party. Here is the clip.
