Cartoons Chris Christie Open Thread Sarah Palin



Artist — Clay Bennett

In related news, during his press conference this past Friday, the first since January, Governor Chris Christie, the last man to know anything about what his closest friends were up to, spoke about the motivations behind the Washington Bridge lane closures:

“I don’t know if we’ll ever know what the motive is,” Christie told reporters. “As I said when I was here on Jan. 9, it mystifies me on every level why this was done. And I hope someday to have an answer to why it was done. But I certainly don’t have a crystal ball and I can’t tell you if or when I’ll ever know. But do I hope to after all this? You bet I hope to.”

“Time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee” doesn’t ring a bell.

Sarah Palin has his back, though, writing on Facebook that the coverage of Chris Christie was media “overkill,” but also added, “Christie is playing them like Eddie Van Halen on guitar.” I’m guessing it’s an air-guitar.

Apologies for the short day, had some serious technical difficulties today.

What else is going on?
