Chris Christie Boards the GOP Clown Car

Chris Christie Boards the GOP Clown Car

Yesterday New Jersey Governor Chris Christie announced his bid for the Republican presidential candidacy at Livingston High School, where he once was Class President and catcher on the baseball team. A few weeks back the Gov was named MVP at a charity softball game in Yankee Stadium. He should have quit while he was ahead.

Mr. Christie is the 14th passenger in the GOP 2016 Presidential Primary clown car, which was already bulging at the seams.
