As you may be aware, there are some scurrilous accusations that in an action of political revenge against the mayor of Ft. Lee NJ, members of Gov. Christie's team arranged for lane closures on the George Washington Bridge that resulted in traffic gridlock for several days.
Gov. Christie immediately fired one subordinate involved with this scandal, pledged cooperation with investigations into this matter and has taken personal responsibility to declare he had nothing to do with this.
But people don't believe him.
There's this idea that Gov. Christie is a "bully" with a "bad temper" and given to "petty, vindictive acts". Next we'll hear he has a "weight problem".
Look, you just need only take a look at this veritable teddy bear of a man and realize he's not like that. And coming to Gov. Christie's defense is no greater authority on the subject of Gov. Christie than...Gov. Christie. Read this article and I dare you to not a shed a tear over the torments this dear, sweet man has had to endure over this scandal.
Yes, that article is in the news satire site, The Onion. But doesn't it show you how badly everyone has abandoned the governor in his time of need that he must resort to making his case online at a news satire site. CNN and Fox News sure aren't giving him a fair hearing.
So that's why someone needs to stand up for Gov. Chris Christie.
So I am offering this blog as a forum to reach out the 10's of people who read I'm So Glad My Suffering Amuses You to support the efforts of the New Jersey Arts Council's Tribute to Governor Chris Christie.
