Apparently absolutely nothing is happening in the State of New Jersey right now. I know this because the most newsworthy item on NJ101.5 (yes, yes, sometimes I do listen to news radio despite its lack of music) is that OMG Governor Chris Christie fell asleep AT A SPRINGSTEEN CONCERT! Scandal! Oh, yeah, and jobs are scarce right now, f.y.i. But never mind that. Did we mention that our very own governor had the unmitigated audacity to nod off at a celebration of our undisputed homestate hero? Get me to a fainting couch, quick!
It’s silly enough that this “issue” is deemed even worth acknowledging, but what enrages me is NJ101.5’s implication that this is the biggest scandal that has ever been attached to Christie’s name. Y’know, because he totally never stood in the way of progress when it came to same-sex marriage laws or anything. Heaven forbid.
