Why the media crush on Chris Chrisie?

Rather than put the spotlight on all the crazy sh** Republicans are doing around the country, big media wants us to fall in love with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. This is the tag line for a NY Times profile:

The governor of New Jersey became the most celebrated Republican in America by tagging public-sector workers — especially teachers — as 21st-century welfare queens.

First off, he doesn’t sound so sane. Second, how come “the most celebrated Republican in America” barely has over 50% approval in his own state?
