    But then the Times changed the lede of the story:

    Here, preserved for posterity, is our extremely crude Photoshopped-together comparison of the two ledes side by side. The one on the top is the original one. The one on the bottom is the changed one.

    It's a "show me the money" moment. At least, it should be.

    Not to divert, but how about this blow-up between Rutherford and Rauner.
    I would seriously consider Rutherford since he is an honest and down-state Republican.
    It looks like we'll have an investigation.
    So, Rauner is back with his multi-million dollar ads against Quinn, who is my default vote .

    I'm more concerned about the MOB-style gangster tactics with Hurricane Sandy money and misappropriation of funds.
    I could see a President Rand Paul commuting CC's sentence in 2021 after being elected to his second POTUS term .
    Getting ahead of ourselves a bit here aren't we. I would like to see 2014 in the books before we even begin on 2016. Although it is fun, Ryan, Jeb Bush and Huckabee have overtaken Christie in the latest polls on the republican nomination. Paul is 5th and Cruz 6th.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Yeah.....I heard. Was waiting to hear Joe Walsh and his show since he will be talking about both.

    Still what is this about Christie denying that some guy was his friend.....I am sure emails or past photos will bear that out.

    Since this thread is about Christie, I'm safe to say his goose is cooked.
    FOX is doing its best to keep their eyes on their prize, damning Obama, while MSNBC is fixated on CC.
    It's like two parallel universes, and my remote is the wormhole between them .

    I haven't got that one either.
    Jack Hayes is our resident expert on defending CC and has a few threads going.
    He is back to using the "bridge study" as a defense.

    lol, he decides to tell us he has "evidence" the Friday before the Super Bowl, which is coincidentally being held in New Jersey this Sunday.

    But that evidence won't be shown to us until next week.

    God bless you, New York Times, for setting the standard in ethical journalism.

    No year is ever in the books, now being the "age of revision".
    One more day of Christie is one less day of ACA faux outrage.
    Don't you love that Southern drawl of Gov. Beshear?

    Re: Christie Linked to Knowledge of Shut Lanes

    Did you notice Reince Priebus reinstituting the "unofficial" gag order on the GOP after Huckabee's libido rants?
    Huckabee did what he needed to do and is now a player again.
    Huck is all in and is fund-raising off of women's libidos .
