Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

Shallow Stupid - The Bully is a Dupe

He makes excuses, says he didn't know
About that bridge thing when no one could go.
"I worked the cones." See - it's all just for show.
That's why the Bully is a Dupe.

It wasn't Christie, no - it was his staff
Now they've resigned both the riff and the raff
They jammed up Fort Lee, and just for a laugh.
That's why the Bully is a Dupe.

He loves to spew a lot of hot air
He doesn''t care
Traffic is broke
He says it's OK

He hates Fort Lee; and he don't give a whoop.
That's why the Bully is a Dupe.

To the tune of -

The deeper one looks into this story, Governor Kristie Kreme has a history of political retribution:

A former governor, Richard Cody who is a Democrat, was denied a police security escort;

A Rutgers University professor was suddenly denied funding;

A state senator was "uninvited" to an event within his own district.

Or this: “You want to come up here? Come up here,” Governor Kristie Kreme said to one teacher, a fellow Republican, who hesitated until the governor’s security state troopers gave him no choice. Wagging a finger, the donut lectured the man, then dismissed him from the hall.

All staffers take their cues from their leadership. Bridget's bridge jam is certainly consistent with the thuggish style of her boss; and I find it hard to believe that donut man knew none of this.

Ok, you wanna swap music. Try this:

Uno, dos, tres, quatro
Bridget told David about a thing she saw.
Had two big horns and a wooly jaw.
Wooly bully, wooly bully.
Wooly bully, wooly bully, wooly bully.
David told Bridget, "Gotcha, let's take a chance.
Let's jam the bridge, come and learn to dance."
Wooly bully, wooly bully
Wooly bully, wooly bully, wooly bully.
Bridget told David, "That's the thing to do.
Get you someone really to pull the wool with you."
Wooly bully, wooly bully.
Wooly bully, wooly bully, wooly bully.

Wolly Bully - HA!

Another theory is that Fort Lee was targeted to get back at the state senator from the Ft. Lee district over state supreme court nominations.

Rachel has it here.

Here is another theory:

Fort Lee was targeted to prove that a pizza can be dispatched to your house faster than an ambulance.
