I’m not sure how to feel about this:
On the one hand, if you’re Chris Christie and you’ve lost Meghan McCain, that would augur problems down the road for your national political ambitions.
On the other hand, if you’re Chris Christie and Meghan McCain won’t support you, it’s almost a conservative law that we constitutionalists must give him another look.
The formulation is simple: if Meghan McCain likes X, then Y is the correct choice; if Meghan McCain supports X, sentient beings must certainly support Y.
But because we know that Christie is everything that the GOP establishment embraces — and that we the people therefore reject — giving him yet another look is counterintuitive. Consequently, perhaps it’s time to rethink that original political proof entirely and just go with a new formulation: if Meghan McCain likes and/or supports X, who besides a few teenaged boys, her agent, her increasingly fading father, and almost certainly Lindsay Graham, even gives a shit?
Express that mathematically and I think I may be on to something.
