Chris Christie didn’t say this… “There’s an old Italian saying: you f— up once, you lose two teeth.”…but he could have! Governor Christie finds himself in a little mess right now jokingly called, Bridge-gate.
It’s a little scandal involving political pay back. We’ll have to see what the subpoenas uncover and just how many on Mr. Christie’s staff plead the 5th. The governor himself has pleaded the Sergeant Schultz defense, (“I know nut-thing!!!”) Meanwhile…while Christie awaits the fate of his staff lying comfortably under the bus…the bossman makes news again, because he’s in the news (??) I know, it makes no sense. But what does??? Let me try to explain. The New Republic ran a piece detailing the alleged scandal and included a photoshop of Christie looking a lot like Tony Soprano.
Then The Blaze asks whether the photo of Christie is…..wait for it…..raaaaacist!!!! Thus a new controversy is born! I don’t know. I’m writing this post to get all youse Uppityites to chime in, (including the blog mistress herself!) Is it racist? Is it offensive to Italian-Americans?? My guess is it wasn’t offensive to Chris Christie, he probably liked the comparison! What say youse?(Youse is Jersey-talk for you…in case youse guys didn’t know. Wait, was that racist?)
