Despite months of denials, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie kept being mentioned as a Presidential Candidate. But yesterday, he held a press conference and said he is absolutely NOT running for President.  This means that the GOP field is likely set, unless Sarah Palin makes an unlikely run.  One GOP strategist said with Christie out, Repubicans can finally focus on the economy and stop dreaming of some perfect candidate who’ll come in on a flying carpet.  

- Being the big boy that he is, Christie would probably need an extra large industrial strength throw rug.  

- Empire Carpet volunteered to bring in a candidate and have him installed the very next day!
