"They say the universe is expanding. That should help with the traffic." Stephen Wright
So Chris Christie is running for president.
And wants to be taken seriously.
Chris Christie, no matter what (else) he says and does, is not qualified to hold public office.
He was responsible for the vindictive bridge closure to punish the New Jersey citizenry for not supporting him.
It matters not an iota whether Christie directly ordered; implied; gave a wink, nod, or secret handshake in the head; set such a juvenile tone in his administration; or appointed or tolerated people of such sleazy character with the authority to carry out such devious acts.
He was responsible.
Responsibility cannot be delegated.
And responsibility must not be marginalized, for any reason.
Christie's character; morals; principles; and ethics are more than suspect.
And there's been more than enough of that garbage occupying our Oval Office.
When looking at the broad field of candidates running for the Republican nomination, some of whom are superb, Christie is simply out-manned. And "out-womanned".
A traffic jam is petty and clogs arteries. And adds to waste.
A donut filled with jam is petty, too, and clogs arteries. And adds to waist.
The universe is expanding, and so are some waistlines.
Whether traffic improves or not is moot. For your chance of the presidency, Mr. Christie, is a bridge too far.
So, have another donut. Have two.
Go away, Mr. Christie, go away.
Thank you, Mr. Wright.
When it comes to the presidency, only the best need apply. Unfortunately, less than the best apply and it's up to the public to speak, to sort out the serious from the silly. I don't like traffic jams by design and I don't like donuts with jam.
