    I am too.  Christie looks and sounds like one of us, someone we are very used to seeing and interacting with.

    I don't know if his essential Jersey-ishness will play well in other parts of the country though, esp during the primaries.

    •  Actually from the southeast. (0+ / 0-)

      My current home in the suburbs of Atlanta is the farthest north I've every lived.

      The Tea Party types down here will forgive somebody for being a yankee if he (or she) is a big enough asshole. Proof: they LOVE Palin.

        I did NOT mean to imply that Jerseyishness equates to assholishness. (Some southern folks would; not me.) I mean to imply that portraying yourself as a common "man of the people" while actually advancing policies that make rich white men richer at the expense of everyone else is assholishness.
