Chris Christie Is Father of the Year

Probably because he’s so warm and cuddly.

NJ.com reports:Gov. Chris Christie often uses his interactions as the father of four children as speech-fodder in his public appearances. Now, the Father’s Day/Mother’s Day Council has recognized the governor’s prowess as a parent by naming him Father of the Year, along with shoe designer Vince Camuto. Other honorees may still be named. The governor often peppers his public speeches with anecdotes about his children, who rang in age from 10 to 20, and they, along with his wife, Mary Pat, have been a public part of his five years in the state’s highest elected office.”

    Because he exploits mention of his family to make himself seem more people friendly to voters? Makes me wonder what kickbacks and/or threats were involved.
