Barney Frank has his way of handling hecklers, and Chris Christie has his. In a video making the rounds, the New Jersey governor gets in the face of a heckler at a Meg Whitman rally in California. "Hey, listen. You know what. You want to yell, yell at me," said Christie. "It’s people who raise their voices and yell and scream like you who are dividing this country. We’re here to bring this country together." The performance is "true to his tough-guy persona," writes Josh Margolin at the Newark Star-Ledger. (More Chris Christie stories.)
