Election 2012

Chris Christie Shouts at People

Chris Christie in Iowa, evidently campaigning for vice president:

"If you don’t do what you’re supposed to do for Mitt Romney on Tuesday," Christie said, defiant in only a suit jacket against the biting cold and wind-whipped rain, "I will be back, Jersey-style, people. I will be back."

Yeah, and do what?

As near as I can tell, Christie's whole thing is yelling at, shaming and badgering people. Most of the time he does it in response to valid criticisms of his unpopular and destructive austerity measures, contrasted with super-stupid things like taking taxpayer-funded helicopter rides to his kids' soccer games. But now he appears to be turning his Jersey hectoring into a broader campaigning strategy. "Don't make me pull this car over! BADDABING! OH!"
