Sunday in the park with Chris
I'm so frigging pleased with myself for thinking this up & then doing the (OK, primitive) photoshopping.

Chris Christie is a joke.

I was off by a day when I wrote, on Thursday, about Chris Christie: There are updates. First, Christie had the state of New Jersey pay for a million-dollar report that (surprise!) exonerated (& beatified) him, putting the blame on (surprise) the emotional woman, Bridget Kelly. Given that the lawyers behind that report didn't even talk to the 3 principals (Kelly, Wildstein, Stepien), how complete can it be? In possibly related news, Port Authority honcho David Samson, a henchpal of Christie's from way back, resigned with no warning late on Friday. Stay tuned....

Cory Booker is the first mayor of Newark not to be indicted since 1962.

So it's not just Christie, it's New Jersey's shockingly old-fashioned bare-knuckle politics. Fascinating article in The New Republic about how he rose to power. Click on caption to read the piece, which contains this (& much more):

Barbara Buono, the state senator who had volunteered to challenge Christie when more prominent (more…)

And then there were none...

Haven't visited the scandal here for a couple of weeks, but still enjoying it, especially that so many of his peeps & formers are falling over themselves to rat him out (& save their own asses) or are getting fired, subpoenaed, or are resigning. As the who-know-what-when gets closer & closer to the governor—who's left?

Bridge to nowhere

Chris Christie: unfit
Great scandal! Not icky-sexy, no complicated financial or legal shenanigans in places I've never heard of. Straight-up old-fashioned bare-knuckle politics. I don't have a horse in this race, so why take glee in Christie's misfortunes? Because he's a Republican & a bully & a crook. Because there's a smoking gun: "time for traffic problems in Fort Lee." Because thank heavens this came out before he made a serious run for President. Imagine him with even more power to retaliate: scary.
