Gov. Christie says he's 'not a fan,' proves it by blowing hot air

by Jeremy Hooper

In reaction to the historic New York vote:

Chris-Christie"I am not a fan of same-sex marriage. It’s not something that I support. I believe marriage should be between one man and one woman. That's my view and that'll be the view of our state because I wouldn't sign a bill like the one that was in New York."

-NJ Gov. Chris Christie, to David Gregory on "Meet The Press"

Not a fan? Weird, we don't remember any of NJ's gay couples asking for the GOP governor to throw a party or hold a pennant, only to stop pretending that LGBT-centric discrimination is the one soriee with no last call.

So now for New Jersey, land of the failed civil union system that the state legislature arbitrarily opted to enact (following state high court ruling) rather than doing the right thing and choosing full and equal marriage, this means that the courts are again the best path forward. Or we should say the only path forward, since Cuomo's Republican counterpart to the south has put as much stock in the veto pen as the New York governor placed in benign peace. As if that's really going to stop the indelible writing on the walls of the Holland Tunnel.
