Yesterday, TMZ broke the news that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and a constituent exchanged heated words about education policy.

Gov. Christie (R-NJ) was hangin’ with his family in Seaside Heights … and had just ordered an ice cream cone when a passerby fired off some snide comments about Christie’s policy on education.

Christie got PISSED — and while clutching his cone, shouted back at the guy, “You’re a real big shot … you’re a real big shot shootin’ your mouth off.”

The man shouted back, “Nah, just take care of the teachers!”

The Left immediately began beating the “Christie is a bully” drum … while mocking his weight and wishing for his death.

Clearly these liberals need to set up a beer summit with their archenemy, self-awareness.

Thanks so much for the lesson in “new tone,” civility police.

Oh, and in case you’ve been living under a rock, here’s how it works.
