TRENTON — Gov. Chris Christie announced today that he was dropping the fight against same-sex marriage in New Jersey by withdrawing his his appeal of a major case that was being heard by the state Supreme Court.
Does anybody actually buy this bit of “konservative kabuki?”
Everybody knows my own position on gay marriage: I support it. Just as, I am positive, Chris Christie does.
But with this, he’s having a twenty pound slice of cake (his normal serving) while cramming the whole thing down his gigantic maw, too. He withdraws his nominal opposition to gay marriage while at the same time proclaiming his opposition. Win, win for Governor Two-Face.
“The government made me do it” is his apparent excuse for this bit of theater.
