Quote of the Day

"A lot of these people around Wall Street are more pragmatic conservatives. And the 'sit down and shut up' stuff does not seem presidential to them. It seems disqualifying."—An anonymous political donor "who often serves as a liaison between GOP politicians and Wall Street donors," quoted in a Politico piece about Republican New Jersey Governor and possible presidential candidate Chris Christie's, ahh, mercurial temperament.

The bankrollers of Republican politics are starting to notice that Christie is an explosive bully. Of course, they don't have principled personal objections to his being a nightmare; they only care insomuch as voters might have a problem with a presidential candidate who screams at people on camera and shuts down bridges out of sheer petty revenge.
