Paul Escalates Feud with Christie

The feuding between New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) continued as the senator cautioned the governor he was picking a fight with the wrong guy, CNN reports.

Paul defended himself against Christie's most recent allegations that the senator was bringing home too much money for his state: "This is the king of bacon talking about bacon."

Earlier in the day, Christie chastised Kentucky for taking more federal money than New Jersey: "So if Senator Paul wants to start looking at where he's going to cut spending to afford defense, maybe he should start cutting the pork barrel spending that he brings home to Kentucky."

Dan Amira says Christie's response was "absolutely dripping with disdain for Paul, as if there was nobody he respected less in the entire world."
