Christie calls anti-Muslim conservatives "bigots"

The following video hasn't gotten much attention in the mainstream press, but it has lit a fire on right-wing web sites. The shaky, grainy 16-minute speech was shot by an attendee at a dinner for the Muslim holiday of Iftar, held at the governor's mansion two weeks ago. "In many publications around this country I'm now called an Islamist," Christie told the crowd. "Ya know, listen, I've been called worst things -- usually on the boardwalk on Seaside Heights. Y'all saw my reaction to that."

UPDATE: This video has apparently been taken offline.
