Another Unplugged From the Matrix Quote

This time, courtesy of New Jersey governor Chris Christie, who in January nominated Sohail Mohammed, an American Muslim, to the New Jersey Superior Court bench. Mohammed was sworn in Tuesday, and Christie uttered the following to defend his choice:

It’s just crazy, and I’m tired of dealing with the crazies. It’s just unnecessary to be accusing this guy of things just because of his religious background. I’m happy that he’s willing to serve after all this baloney.

The Newark Star-Ledger wrote this in an editorial Tuesday:

Mohammed’s appointment is a badge of honor for Christie and New Jersey, but it also serves as something else our society and political arena desperately need:
crazy repellent.

Amen to both.
