Late in last night’s droning GOP debate, Chris Christie pivoted to ISIS when asked about Kim Davis and religious liberty. That got a lot of folks’ attention. Via Daily Kos:
Finally, Republicans are getting it! During last night’s debate, Chris Christie inadvertently explained how the Kim Davises of the world resemble radical Islamic jihadists: “what they want to do is impose their faith upon each and every one of us.”
Davis, of course, is the Kentucky county clerk who defiantly refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples after the Supreme Court made marriage equality the law of the land last year. Christie’s unintentional misstep came during the most unique and misguided of political pivots—when he was trying to steer his answer away from the fact that he had previously said a person in Davis’s position must follow the law and do her job.
