New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is an obvious choice for one of our longest-running features here at Colorado Pols.

As Chris Cillizza writes for CNN, Christie has absolutely no more fucks left to give:
On Friday, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie ordered beaches across the Garden State closed — a reaction to the ongoing budget impasse in the state’s legislature.
Less than 48 hours later, photos from NJ Advance Media showed Christie sunning himself with his family on Island Beach State Park — the only people on the beach because, well, the governor had closed it…
…But, wait! It gets worse! Way worse!
Turns out that after those photos were taken on Sunday, Christie took the state helicopter to Trenton for a press conference. At it, he was asked about staying at the beach while the beaches were shut down. “I didn’t get any sun today,” Christie responded.
When shown the pictures, a Christie spokesman — in what will be fast-tracked into the spin Hall of Fame — responded: “He did not get any sun. He had a baseball hat on.”
The “hat” defense! Epic. Absolutely epic.
Even FOX News and the Washington Times ripped into the former Republican Presidential candidate.
