'I'm happy if they're [managing to find happiness despite my best efforts on behalf of discrimination]'

by Jeremy Hooper

My headline is the more accurate phrasing of this, newly re-elected New Jersey Governor Chris Christie's comment on the same-sex couples who are now marrying in his state:

Christie On Gay Marriages In NJ: I'm Happy 'If They're Happy' [TPM]

You know what, governor? You don't deserve any tinge of warm feelings about these couples' marriages! If you felt such a strong need to spend years telling society that these couples' happiness comes at some great expense (and let's be clear: you did), then you can take your "I'm happy if they're happy" and shove it up your New Jersey Turnpike.

I'm sorry, but I'm not playing this "he's such a moderate" game, just like I refuse to call him frank or refreshing when he's more accurately acting like a bully. Respect is earned, and on this issue on marriage equality, Gov. Christie has recruited quite the opposite.
