Chris Christie came up with a clever strategy to deal with the political hot potato called Common Core. He had long been a vocal supporter. But now, anticipating the primaries in Iowa and New Hampshire, he has turned against them.


But here is the bizarre part. He wants to keep the Common Core-aligned PARCC test. This parent, Sarah Blaine, calls him out for hypocrisy and double-dealing. She points out that if you believe he is really abandoning the Common Core, she has a bridge to sell you. It is not clear whether she is selling the Brooklyn Bridge (which connects Brooklyn and Manhattan) or the George Washington Bridge (which Christie aides closed to punish the mayor of Fort Lee for refusing to endorse Christie).
