Assistant Quote of the Day
"Sharia Law has nothing to do with this at all, it’s crazy! The guy is an American citizen! (This) Sharia Law business is just crap… and I’m tired of dealing with the crazies."
-- New Jersey Governor Chris Christie defending his appointment of a Muslim-American judge to the state bench
It's sad to think that stating the incredibly obvious -- and perfectly sane -- can constitute an act of courage, but credit where credit is due here. While I haven't always been a fan of Christie's policies, given the current default position within much of the GOP when it comes to stoking xenophobic rage through completely unfounded, nonsense controversies, Christie's verbal smackdown is damn refreshing.
Watch and learn, Herman Cain and Peter King.
