Get ready to stick a slicing prong in Chris fucking Christie, as he is about to be rotisseried. If time and circumstances permit I will try to add a video of the up-coming "late-morning press conference" scheduled for today. I'm also going to try to do some research into just why it is that the Mayor of Fort Lee declined to support Christie's re-election bid, the alleged reason for the four days of lane closures on the George Washington Bridge, the Port Authority claiming the closings were a party of a "traffic study". This is political payback on an unheard of scale, which not only resulted in commuters being inexcusably inconvenienced, but endangered them as well..
As for those who contend that Christie was "misled" or that he had no knowledge of the incident, all you have to do is peruse the recently published e-mails among members of Christie's staff-including his deputy chief-of-staff-in order to gleam a hint of the culture of arrogance and entitlement permeating the governor's staff. Christie is engaging in a process of plausible deniability, but it just isn't-well, plausible.
The deputy chief-of-staff even complained-again, in an e-mail-when the New York side of the bridge ordered the closed lanes re-opened.
This is the kind of shit you get when you insist on big government. Whether the big government in question is run by democrats or republicans is really pretty irrelevant. There's something bad wrong with all these fucking people.
