Tramps Like Us, Baby, We Were Born To Eat

Turns out that Chris Christie, the morbidly obese Governor of New Jersey, is a big Springsteen fan.

The longer I live, the more I encounter things in this world that just dumbfound and amaze me. This is one of those things.

It is obvious that Christie has no idea what Springsteen has been singing about for the last 40 years or so.

If he listened to the lyrics and took them to heart, well, he wouldn't be Chris Christie. He couldn't be.

Bruce Springsteen champions almost everything that an obnoxious loudmouth bully like Christie is against.

You know, things like community, working people, racial justice, economic fairness, equality, unions, brotherhood, the struggle of the common man against the corporation....

Things that Chris "Super Size Me!" Christie has nothing in common with.

PS It occurs to me that, as Springsteen tours Europe, he offers a look at the best of America...whereas Mitt Romney, as he races off to kiss Bibi Netanyahu's ass after his various London debacles, offers up the worst.
