So, uh, this happened yesterday. In case you were wondering about how to shut up the confrontational Christie, you might try calling him "hot and sexy":

Today, via Ben Smith, I see that the woman in question is explaining herself to the Governor's wife:

Christie told Sparta resident Debra Nicholson, to write his wife because they had celebrated their 25th anniversary on Tuesday and such a comment would "keep her on her toes."

Nicholson told The Daily Record of Parsippany she began the letter to Mary Pat Christie by writing, "Your husband asked me to do this."

The married mother of three says she was responding to a recent poll that found Christie is slightly hotter, politically speaking, than President Barack Obama.

The attorney said she returned home Wednesday night and found 86 messages on her voicemail after video of her remark went viral.

Nicholson says Christie displays leadership that is "hot and sexy."

If leadership is sexy, then it's only a matter of time before the ladies are throwing undergarments at the podium.
