Keep 'em coming

Republicans appear to be looking to add some heft to their 2012 presidential campaign.

Chris Christie, the tough-talking, vacation-loving New Jersey governor (hey, he just dissed Snooki) is apparently the latest to fall under the spell of the GOP's Anybody but Mitt crowd. Rick Perry seemed to fit that bill until someone read his book and realized a candidate who calls Social Security a Ponzi scheme isn't going to do well with the seniors who became enthralled by the Tea Party last year.

Christie, whose principal accomplishment to date appears to be that he behaves like a stereotypical Jersey guy, has steadfastly refused to take the bait so far, knowing he holds Sarah Palin-like credentials of only being part way through his first term.

But the billionaire's club that finances the Tea Party appears to be whispering sweet nothings into Christie's ears as they work to their best darn government their money can buy.

It would be ironic if a guy who made his bones as a federal prosecutor was lured to the race by the race by the siren song of unlimited campaign cash.

If Christie jumps in, my one question would be his stance on Michelle Obama's White House vegetable garden. A whole different kind of green that doesn't appear to interest him.
