(Newser) – Mitt Romney isn't the only one sticking his foot in his mouth at New Hampshire events: Last night, Chris Christie made what Slate calls an "offensive oral sex joke" while campaigning with Romney. Responding to female hecklers who were yelling something about jobs going down, Christie said, "You know, something may be going down tonight, but it ain’t going to be jobs, sweetheart."

Far from downplaying the moment, the New Jersey GOP actually uploaded the video to its own YouTube account. "They seem to think his remark about 'going down' is a zinger, something to be proud of, rather than recognizing it as flagrantly demeaning, even misogynistic," writes Torie Bosch for Slate. "How would Christie have responded to male protesters saying the same thing? Probably not by changing the subject to what acts they perform in the bedroom."

WTF? Where did he insinuated oral sex? "You know, something may be going down tonight, but it ain’t going to be jobs, sweetheart." Something! not someone.

I think the whole innuendo thing is a little over blown.
