According to the Wall Street Journal, NJ Gov. Chris Christie is defending himself against charges of general douchebaggery by arguing that he intentionally avoids saying “the blandest, most vanilla thing.” Sure, he risks offending voters, but that’s a good thing.
As he says, “I try to reach a balance. That’s going to lead to good moments and some not-so-good moments.”
Perhaps someone should inform Gov. Christie that the opposite of bland is not obnoxious.
