I don't like bullies, and I especially do not want a bully elected to national office.  I wrote and recorded the following song parody so I, and maybe others, can laugh a little when we are tempted to get overtaken with anger.  The recording can be heard on my Reverbnation page by following this link.  It's the top song on the page.

If interested, follow me over the jump to see the lyrics.

Christie (Sung to the tune of "Windy", by the Association)

What’s leakin’ out from Trenton, New Jersey
Stories about their bully-in-chief
Who's on TV and playin’ the victim
Everyone knows it's Christie

Who's tying up the streets of the city
Snarling at everybody he sees

Who likes to yell and threaten and bluster
Everyone knows it's Christie

And Christie has lots of guys
That help him to cover lies

And Christie thinks he can rise
Above the law (above the law)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

        he's bleeding, the sharks are after him in his own party and the New Jersey Democrats have a majority of both houses.  He'll be impeached.  He's DOA.

        And it's great TV, I have a head cold, and am sneezing too much to go out, but I have MSNBC and this to watch.  A revelation a second.

        I like Steve Kornaki's idea that it was about the development, and its bridge access.  The developers are selling it because of that access, and the mayor maybe isn't corruptible, and there are contracts Christie would very much like to control for rewards and punishments, and so I think the documents that are important will be with his contractor donors, I think it's about presidential run money being raised on favors in a place he isn't  in control over, yet.  It'll come down to money and patronage, and that what puts jersey governors behind bars.

        Fit's with the Christie quotes, why does ft. lee need three lanes?  And his missing why it's a scandal, in his narrative ft lee would have to pay him to get that access, he was pissed when it opened after only four days.

          but at least I get to read about it on Kos.  Now, to get some more popcorn...

            I even dvr Steve Kornaki Saturday and Sunday, I got cable for more PBS, but I keep it for MSNBC.  Maddow is the best, she broke the story for people outside Jersey, and it immediately caught my attention.  Watching abuse of power is immensely interesting.  It's not that easy anymore, with so many news outlets, and with cable news real investigative reporting. In the old days Cronkite would have give a limb for such wealth of information and screen time.
