We already know that super-popular Republican New Jersey Governor Chris Christie could totally beat Barack Obama in an election for President of the United States. But could he also beat Obama in a race for President of Sexiness? A recent town hall suggests this. From the AP:

Gov. Chris Christie received an unusually warm reception at a town hall meeting Wednesday - warm enough to make him blush. During a question-and-answer session at a church hall in Hopatcong in Sussex County, Debra Nicholson, of Sparta, prefaced a question about affordable housing with this praise: "Having a governor who's smart and has the perseverance to do what's right is hot and sexy."

The portly but recently reducing Christie responded by asking her to write a note to his wife restating that claim immediately.

What is this, a town hall meeting or a bordello? Guess it just goes to show that bashing teachers' unions is the world's strongest aphrodisiac. We demand to see the video which Christie's team is no doubt editing and uploading to YouTube as we speak.
