The keynote speaker at the Republican National Convention spoke of the importance of respect early on in his speech last night, especially when it’s compared to the fleeting nature of popularity for anyone in a leadership role.
But alas some in the liberal media were far too busy thinking of jokes they could make at the New Jersey governor’s expense rather than actually listen to what he had to say.
Strategically placed between a suggestively large photo of Chris Christie on the front page of this morning’s Philadelphia Inquirer were two unrelated article titles that appeared to make some reference to his size.
Below the picture was a description of the category-1 hurricane that’s currently wreaking havoc in the Gulf Coast region. “Isaac, Huge and Slow,” it said. To the left of the image was an article that used a quote in the title. “This is Huge, says Mixmaster Mike.”
The corresponding article by John Baer portrayed Ann Romney and Christie respectively as “the Odd Couple, Good Cop/Bad Cop, Beauty and the Beast,” or any other “divergent duo”. Their speeches were back-to-back.
