Worse Finger in the Face: Chris Christie or Jan Brewer?

It looks like Governor Jan Brewer's not the only one to utilize the ol' finger-in-the-face technique to try to get the upper-hand in an argument.

Whereas Brewer stuffed her finger in the face of the President of the United States, Christie shoved his in the face of another menace to society -- a schoolteacher.

According to Slate's David Weigel, who took the Christie photo, the teacher asked Christie why he called New Jersey schools "failure factories." Chrstie responded that "he was sick of 'you people,'" and the two bickered about school funding.

Brewer's changed her story on why her finger was in President Obama's face, so we're just left with the photo.

Which one do you think is a force finger in the face?
