In this week’s broadcast I survey three of the off-off-year election results. In the New York City mayoral election, Bill de Blasio won by a landslide. I describe the victor thus:
Über-RINO Chris Christie won a second term in the governorship of New Jersey by almost as sensational a margin. I deprecate Christie in customary VDARE.com terms, but add:
I’ll say this for the guy, though: He has a personality. And no, I don’t mean that as a synonym for being fat. That abrasive quality, that firmness in sticking to his positions, that smash-mouth response to public-sector whiners, is bracing. Not many of our coached, blow-dried, focus-group-tested, consultant-approved politicians have discernible or distinctive personality. I still have trouble telling the difference between Paul Ryan and Eric Cantor . . . or is it Paul Cantor and Eric Ryan? Whatever.
Christie has a personality for sure. Even discounting for the blubber, you wouldn't mistake him for anyone else. I just wish that candor and that firmness could be employed in the service of constitutional fidelity and patriotic concern for citizens over foreigners.
