Jersey News: “Whaling Wall”

People are mad at the New York Post for showing a picture of our governor, Chris Christie, at the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem with the headline “Whale at the Wall” – and rightly so. But New Jerseyans themselves have been saying hateful things like that about the governor since before he was elected. It amazes me that they don’t realize that when they do this, they make themselves – and the state – look bad.

Christie almost invites this sort of criticism, with the way he himself bullies political opponents and even constituents.

Even so, we should all raise the level of discourse. Disagree with his policies, but stop ad hominem attacks. We need to be better than that, New Jersey.
