ICYMI: Lt. Gov. Guadagno, Christie's #2

The joke, with a dose of trash talk and wallop of fiscal conservatism, signaled what Gov. Christie likely already knows: His No. 2, Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno, is a chip off the old block.

In case you missed it, this story appeared in the Irene-soaked editions of Sunday's Philadelphia Inquirer.

The Army officer escorting New Jersey's lieutenant governor through a new facility for homeless veterans last week stopped to point out that the American Legion had raised $160,000 for the furniture.

"If we had bought it with state dollars," Maj. Gen. Glenn K. Rieth said, pointing at a table, "it would be a carton."

"No," the lieutenant governor retorted, if the facility had relied on state dollars, "you wouldn't have it" at all.

And that's it for me for the week. As Gov. Christie surveys post-Irene damage, check Philly.com/philly/news/new_jersey/ for the latest. I'll be back on the Christie trail after Labor Day.
