Stand back--there'll be a stampede of right-wingers screaming "activist judge!" any time now.

Before everybody starts throwing confetti and drinking gallons of Budweiser in celebration, although I believe we will ultimately prevail, this will almost certainly be appealed.

And like the appeals process in California, this may not be finally decided in New Jersey for quite some time.

Cristie is a lucky guy to have the judiciary remove the albatross. Let's see if he's smart enough to accept the decision and move on as quickly as possible. He said the courts should decide, not the legislature. So live up to your word.

I'm reserving celebration until after all the psychotic homophobes finish their silly conniption fits

They need time to rip their congregations' purse strings for all they are worth before the law sets in

I'm betting this will be appealed.

Of course Cristie will appeal. He wants to be a player in Republican politics at the national level.

But if he were as smart as he's given credit for, he'd look a decade out. By then, the Tea Party will have destroyed itself with all the infighting, and the Kochs will not be able to put Humpty together again. Cristie can appear forward-thinking and broad-minded. He can lead a new generation of Republicans to replace the current hide-bound generation.

He could. Unfortunately, it's very difficult for a smart man to stay aligned with Republicans right now.

I saw Peter King and Ted Cruz on tv today.

Although I'm a Long Islander of 50+ years standing, and Peter King i, and has been for a long time, the only Republican congressman from Long Island (I was in New York's 1st congressional district, while King is in the 3rd district), I side with Cruz on the Stalinist OBAMACARE mandate and shutting down the federal government, rather than with King. King is much to moderate.

And as I have said here many times, I am NOT a Republican. I'm a Libertarian.

But as a Tea Partyer, if I have to choose between the philosophies of King and Cruz. I choose Cruz.

Moderation is defeatism.

And since I now live in Arizona, I will quote Arizona Senator Barry Goldwater: "I would remind you that extremism in the defense of LIBERTY is no vice ! And let me remind you also that moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue !"

The problem being the definition of "liberty". Barry didn't mind ignoring the constitution if it got in his way.

I would posit that extremism of any kind is self-defeating, because most people are not extremists and reject that mentality.

I'm not quite sure why you felt compelled to offer us this testimony. My post was about Cristie and the current state of that party which you don't belong to.

It's not about you.
