In case you’re just catching up with last night’s “dumpster fire” of a debate, one of the highlights was Chris Christie attacking CNBC debate moderator John Harwood during the debate:
Chris Christie to John Harwood: "Even in New Jersey, what you're doing is called 'rude.'"

“Public theater”? Maybe not for all the candidates, but it certainly does look bad for Governor Christie. Remember this?
It’s a pattern.
