Remember when politicians said they wanted them to be safe and rare? They got their wish – the rare part, anyway.
Obama’s not a Democrat. He just doesn’t act like one.
Most people who buck the system are easily pressured to change course, but a few are more likely to get their back up and hold steady, at least until the pressure becomes unbearable. Gretchen Morgenson wrote today about one such stubborn fellow.
I had this burning pain in the middle of my wrist that made it difficult to type, so I went to the chiro today.
“Where does it hurt?”
“Right here,” I said, pointing to a spot between my wrist and hand.
He grabbed my arm, cracked the bones and made everything hurt. Then he grabbed my fingers and pushed them all the way back toward my hand. “Don’t you stretch your hands?” he said.
“Not like that,” I said, shaking my hand. But the pain was gone.
One of the things that bugs me about Christie is that he also does some good stuff (like this), so we know he’s not stupid – just incredibly political – and not in a good way.
