The fun and the real of Chris Christie


New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and Newark Mayor Cory Booker have made a parody video. From the New Jersey press:

The three-and-a-half minute video unveiled Tuesday night at the New Jersey Legislative Correspondents Club dinner shows the Republican governor being thwarted at do-gooding by Booker. The mayor fixes the governor’s flat tire, catches a falling baby and backs up Bruce Springsteen after the music star loses a guitar, each time telling Christie, “I got this!”

Not to take the fun out, but when we watched this at my house, our reaction went from Hey, that governor who snarls at town halls and wants the majority to vote on our rights seems so likeable to something more along the lines of Wow, he knows exactly what he’s doing.
