Five of the most-liked Washington Post comments from the last 24 hours

Chris Christie and the hiring of Redskins Coach Jay Gruden dominate the conversation. One commenter in our top five even found a way to connect the two.

1. From Chris Christie stares into political abyss by Greg Sargent; Dan999 (32 likes)

You don’t get revenge for your boss without telling him you got revenge for him. You really don’t.

2. From Chris Christie did everything right today. But Bridge-gate is still a very real problem for him by Chris Cillizza; War4Sale (21 likes)

What about all the thousands of people who were affected by this act of partisan revenge?! He barely even acknowledged them.

3. From We learned a lot about Christie in Bridgegate by Richard Cohen; MinnyMa (15 likes)

4. From Jay Gruden to become Redskins coach, agrees to five-year deal by Mark Maske and Mike Jones; lf12 (8 likes)

5. From London Fletcher on Redskins hiring Jay Gruden by Missy Rosenberg; mista_is_moe (7 likes)

Hopefully, they hire Chris Christie to coach the offensive line.

Any guy who can successfully block traffic in New Jersey deserves the chance to teach blocking in the NFC East.
