I suppose one way to keep yourself occupied instead of doing actual reporting is to spend all of your time discussing the people who aren’t running for President:
Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey has decided not to seek the presidency, according to two associates.
Mr. Christie is scheduled to announce his decision at a news conference in the state capital at 1 p.m. But one adviser to the governor and another person who spoke to him directly said Tuesday morning that the governor would not pursue the Republican nomination.
The decision ends a late flurry of indecision on the part of Mr. Christie, who had been encouraged by a growing number of Republican donors and activists who had hoped he would add his name to the field of candidates vying to challenge President Obama.
But Mr. Christie, who was elected governor in 2009, had long said that he did not feel ready to pursue the presidency. At one point, he joked that he would have to commit suicide to convince people he was not running.
I guess this means we will go back to the Palin infatuation, who, as we know, is also not running.
Speaking of Palin, I had insomnia last night so I watched a movie called Confidence with Ed Burns. It was pretty “meh,” as far as grifter movies go, but I really do love the genre. My personal favorites are The Sting (obviously) and House of Games, back before Mamet went insane. Have any suggestions for good grifter movies?
