    Oh, they have no idea.

    And when their boy loses despite all that - they will blame "voter fraud" and just keep pulling the same old shit until they are extinct.

    I'm watching the weekly political wrap-ups on PBS last night and Christie's name was hot. The discussion inevitably went to the presidential possibilities and more than one talking head referred to the difficulty that Christie will have with the TEA Party faithful in the primaries.

    What they didn't seem to understand is that a candidate like Chris Christie has the potential to pull enough of us moderates back to the right to make the TEA Party quite irrelevant going forward.

    The TeaTards will split their vote between Cruz and Paul. Will either one drop out for the good of the TeaParty?

    Christie strikes me as the kind of candidate the MSM just loves- like Huntsman and McCain and Arlen Specter- that the rank and file GOP people are just rubes.

    As opposed to the GOP establishment, who also think they are rubes, but have figured out how to play them.

    Rand Paul won't get more than that 10% of the party his crazy father got.

    The real contest will be between Cruz and Christie, assuming neither one of them implodes before 2016.

    Think Mark Sanford or Gary Hart.

    Democrats are already lining up the fat jokes. They need Christie to run, otherwise all that effort is wasted.
