Pointless musing of the day

I finally realized who New Jersey Republican gubernatorial candidate Chris Christie (below) reminds me of...
That'd be this guy:

Then again, this saga could make a killer episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm, with Larry going around messing with Corzine's staff, and Jeff Garlin being ridiculed by Corzine as a "fat fuck", and maybe he could offend Ted Danson along the way.

Problem: I have lots of opinions on politics and culture that I need to vent. If I do not do this I will wind up muttering to myself, and that's only like one or two steps away from being a hobo. Solution: I write two blogs. A political blog that has some evident sympathies (pro-Obama, mostly liberal though I dissent on some issues, like guns and trade) and a culture blog that does, well, cultural essays in a more long-form manner. My particular thing is taking overrated things (movies, mostly, but other things too) down a peg and putting underrated things up a peg. I'm sort of the court of last resort, and I tend to focus on more obscure cultural phenomena.
