In a pie-eating contest? Mud wrestling? In a foot-race to a donut shop? Banning assault weapons? To the Democratic nomination? Scarfing down a whole pizza? Zima chugging?

After I hit post I thought, “You know, I should have added the sarcasm tag.”

You know, if you read that headline really fast, it kind of looks like this:

Christie says he can Eat Clinton

...which, of course, is imminently believable.

Even, then, it might depend on the type of clam; I think she might reject and avoid the GEODUCK clam in favor of the more...bearded variety offered by Huma.

For all of Hillary's boo boos, like, well, all of them, Christies’ bridge is far worse. How in the world could a man who may have closed one lane on a bridge, causing distress to commuters(we all know that commuters must be stress free)hope to defeat someone who is just a common criminal and habitual liar?

A serious question is why our side(sides)allow themselves to be pushed aside by a media for frivolous things and ignore really serious things with life and death consequences. We should demand answers 24/7, not passively accept it. We have real enemies folks, yet we fight each other over a shrinking role in public affairs.

If it came down to christie v shillary, you know we’d pull the level for christie RINO that he is, he’d still be better than shillary!

Beat TN Oath Breaker of 2 terms and out RINO Sen lamar alexander, 73, voted to let 0’care out of committe, voted to reduce Veteran pensions. Debt only increased under his watch, votes more Dem than GOP. Not a friend of TN or the Military. Make lamar the next RINO cantor!

State Rep Joe Carr has a conservative voting record you can check out. http://www.carrfortn.com/

Maybe in a cage match he could sit on her, but then he would have to be worried about ravies if she bit him.

Good news for the gun owners of NJ. If he decides to run, he will have to veto the Dems gun control measures just to stay viable. The latest a 10 round magazine restriction which is on his desk right now. If he decides not to run, we are even more screwed than we already are.

Christie won’t hold the conservative base - and may do worse on that front than Romney and McCain.
