Conservative wrath against Christie, however, raises two obvious questions about the New Jersey governor's future, and one not-so-obvious one. First, is it possible for the party to cast out a former convention keynoter and much-beseeched 2008 would-be candidate? Second, is it a good idea to even try? Off the top of my head, I'd say it's probably not possible to forcibly remove the "R" from Christie's identity, no matter how many working-class anthems he knows the words to. As for the usefulness of the exercise, see above. The more that deep-red ideologues try to paint Christie blue, the more purple hearts will melt.
