First, a number of Republican gave speeches. Then, Chris Christie gave the same speech, but louder, and while imagining the audience as a bunch of unionized school teachers in their underwear (because he had taken their pants, alongside their lunch money). The day drew to a close with a performance by Three Doors Down, because torture is still a part of the GOP platform.
Here's what else you may have missed from all the evening's events…
Number of times Chris Christie mentioned Mitt Romney: 7
Number of times Christie mentioned himself: 37
Number of Republicans besides Christie who are happy about this: 0.
