Evening Quickies: Chris Christie Rocks A Pink Tie

  • Chris Christie is the governor of New Jersey and this morning he denied once again that he is seeking the Republican nomination for president. (Except he didn’t actually say that, which I think means wink-wink-nudge-nudge he’s not ready to announce yet.) But anyway, enough about politics — let’s talk about that tie. It’s pink. Hot pink. I have never seen a politician wear such a tie. Blue, yes. Red, yes. But hot pink? No, never. What does it all mean? And could a Democratic dude get away with such a stereotypically effeminate color?
