Steyn: No Point in Electing 'Authentic' Christie if He Hires 'Same Old Lousy Campaign Operatives'

On Hugh Hewitt's radio show on Thursday night, National Review columnist Mark Steyn argued that although Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) is more authentic than some politicians, that authenticity won't matter if he surrounds himself with the same political consulting class everyone else does.

“The bigger lesson of this is there is a kind of permanent political class of operatives, who regardless of the front man at the top of the pyramid, carrying on, pulling a whole lot of stunts – regardless of whether it’s a focus grouped blow-dried phony politician at the top of the pyramid, or Mr. Authentic, like Chris Christie,” Steyn said. “And that gets to an interesting question about American politics – what’s the point of having a super-authentic candidate if he just hires the same old lousy campaign operatives as everybody else?”
