    If only Christie had driven a woman off the bridge and killed her - he'd be a hero to the left.

    Another dodge/deflection. Go figure.

    Maybe, maybe not. The emails don't really indicate that. It does show political douchebaggery (making fun of the mayor in panic) by top Christie aids but that not all too surprising and wouldn't be shocked if most political internal comms are similar. I read through them, I don't see anything clear cut that it was intended to punish this mayor, it was a traffic study of why the exit needed 3 toll booths. Wonder what the studies actual results look like.

    The emails linked were a big mess, could have missed something in the flow.

    After the Obamascare debacle, you think someone should go to jail over a traffic jam?
    I was immediately reminded of a line in the song "Dirty Laundry" by Don Henley.

    "I make my living off the evening news
    Just give me somethin', somethin' I can use
    People love it when you lose
    they love dirty laundry."

    I always loved that song! And this is much ado about nothing. Obama ties up traffic every time he goes somewhere! :

    Greetings, apdst.

    There was no study.

    That was a made up story.

    I don't think that's the best question, to be honest. I think a better one is... Even if Christie was legitimately uninvolved, why didn't he have his team look into this the moment there was a news story of this event? I can't remember where or who, but I heard this story weeks ago (sans the emails), and it sounded so ridiculous that I just wrote it off; until today.

    Good point Singe, I didn't hear about it until today. The thing that stood out to me was who was involved in the emails and because who they were, the chances that Christie wasn't aware of it what was almost impossible.

    terrorism? Come on, surely there should be criminal penalties here, but the charge of terrorism should address more than someone being a complete jack-ass

    Heavy-duty smack here Morton.
    To be honest, I gave up on Ted after that.
    He then went on to back-stab Carter, give us NCLB with Bush, and strangled Obama with this version of ACA .
