Chris Christie: I'm Going To Unite This Country Even If It Means I Have To Kick The Shit Out Of You

Or maybe "especially" if it means that.

Some jackass heckled Meg Whitman at Christie's joint appearance with her.

Chivalry engaged.

"What are you hiding?" shouted Ed Buck, in jeans and a light shirt in the front row of the 400-person event. "You're looking like Arnold in a dress," he said in a reference to outgoing California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Before Whitman could respond, Christie stepped down from the stage and got in Buck's face.

"Hey, listen. You know what. You want to yell, yell at me," Christie said, shutting down Buck as Christie's bodyguards calmly but quickly approached the two men. "It's people who raise their voices and yell and scream like you who are dividing this country. We're here to bring this country together."

Ah, a good leftist attacked a woman on her sexuality. I'm sure the feminists will run riot about that. Insert second dubious premise which by implication casts further doubt upon the previous premise.

You need to click over to the see the picture, which I want to steal, but that would be poaching.

Over at The Right Scoop, two vids of Christie with Whitman. First clip: Christie asks some firefighters "Why are you booing the first guy who's telling you the truth in twenty years?"

N.J. Gov. Christie: You may hate me now, but ten years from now you'll be sending me a thank you note

The second clip, at the site, is about Christie mentioning he's gone from 49% of the vote at election-time to 57% approval.

I really can't overstate how important Christie is. Christie, plus the Tea Party. It's one thing to vote against Democrats. But Christie, and the Tea Party, offer an affirmative reason to vote Republican, the hope that this isn't going to be business as usual.

The fact that Christie's a hit is crucial for weak-kneed poll-obsessed Republican clockwatchers and goldbrickers. You cannot trust people to do the right thing. You can only trust them to do what is in their interest.

As Milton Friedman observed:

Great point, posted by a commenter in a thread (sorry, I forget who), that the political culture will change not when we change those in office but when we change the electorate: "The way you make [good government that doesn't rely on hand-outs and payoffs] politically profitable is to make it easy for the wrong people to do the right thing."
