After Hobby Lobby came down, beleaguered Chris Christie lived up to his title of Big Chicken (Charlie Pierce) by refusing to take a position, using the bizarre "logic" that if he took a position, he would not be a "leader." The Tunnel-killer's lack of courage was also on display recently when he quietly vetoed a gun magazine bill and then ducked a meeting with Newtown parents.
Yesterday, as pointed out by Steve Benen, the urge to pander overcame the urge to cowardice when the "Cone-man" courageously endorsed the terrible Hobby Lobby Decision.
Unidentified man: Can I ask you a question?(Impressive -- even when answering a follow-up question, he can't help being kind of dickish.)
Christie: Sure you can!
Man: Do you support the Supreme Court’s decision in the Hobby Lobby case?
Christie: Do I support the Supreme Court’s decision in the Hobby Lobby case? I do.
Man: Do you support Hobby Lobby’s position on birth control for its employees?
Christie: Well I just said I support the case, so if I support the case and they support the Hobby Lobby….
Next up -- Christie goes to Arizona to berate 10 year old immigrant kids.
