Chuck Grassley: 'Wouldn't It Be Nice To Have [Chris Christie] Sitting On The Pot?'

Chuck Grassley: 'Wouldn't it be nice to have [Chris Christie] sitting on the pot?'

Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa thinks speculating already about 2016 is "stupid," but that didn't stop him from giving his two cents worth when asked by WHO-TV in Des Moines about Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey, about his conservative bona fides, or his opinion that avoiding Iowa would be a mistake. Grassley also commented on his physique, and something about pot-sitting. I have no idea what that means, but like a lot of stuff Foghorn Leghorn Chuck Grassley says it just sounds funny.

Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley says it is too early to be picking favorites of the many Republicans lining up to run for president in 2016, but the Republican Senator did have some thoughts on New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s “physique.”

Christie had weight loss surgery earlier this year, and has reportedly been steadily losing weight ever since. Still, he remains a large man, something that Grassley suggested might be an asset.

“Just look at his physique: You know, when Washington’s ready to blow up, wouldn’t it be kind of nice to have a guy like him sitting on the pot?”
