Day 10: The Sweet Sound of Straight Talk

Listen to the endless interviews of “typical voters” and you’re sometimes struck by the narcissism of it all, as Mr. and Mrs. America stroll down the buffet line  looking for just the right candidate. Irritating assumption: The voter knows the issues, knows what needs to be done, and believes that a clone of himself would fill the bill perfectly.

That’s why I enjoyed this bit of welcome straight talk from the elephantine Chris Christie, Governor of New Jersey:

 “If you’re looking for the candidate who agrees with you on everything, buy a mirror.”
