Chris Christie to Reporter: I'm Not "Confrontational," You Mewling Pussy

Good stuff.

Gov Christie calls S-L columnist thin-skinned for inquiring about his 'confrontational tone'

This flies directly counter to what I was saying earlier about politicians profiting from fudging their positions in order to pander to that segment of the polity who wish to be spared the intellectual and moral burden of making decisions.

Maybe Christie has decided that segment of the population isn't going to rouse itself from its slumber anyway so might as well just speak bluntly.

Will it work? Hey, I've got a some sort of scientific curiosity about stuff. Conventional wisdom says that it's usually the other kind of politician -- slippery, evasive, platitudinous, gray, poll-tested and blow-dried -- that prospers, but who knows. I'm open to contrary evidence.
