“Dave Sirota at PandoDaily is all over Chris Christie’s dubious maneuverings with the pension money owed to New Jersey’s public employees. He’s all over it like stupid on Louie Gohmert, Dave is. The scandal has entangled Charlie Baker, the odds-on Republican candidate for governor here in the Commonwealth (God save it!), and Baker lawyered up this week. Which, as a fair-minded blog, we point out means nothing as regards Baker’s involvement — if any — in the pension shenanigans, but it’s not exactly the optic with which you want to kick off your campaign for an office you’ve already lost once in your life.” – Charles P. Pierce, GQ
