Sometimes, politics makes for some very strange combinations. Like the New Jersey Republicans at gubernatorial candidate Chris Christie's victory rally, who on Tuesday night broke out in a slightly different version of a chant the GOP came to hate last year. As Christie began speaking, his supporters started yelling, in unison, "Yes, we did!"

The governor-elect had to pause his speech for a minute, and appeared a little confused, but he eventually stepped back from the podium and began clapping along.
