Gail Collins, "Bridge Over Troubled Politics": Christie's Substantial Goose Is Cooked

I don't know if it's my age or my PTSD, but I don't handle traffic jams very well, whether they are the handiwork of Republicans or Democrats. Those unfortunately present in a traffic-impacted vehicle driven by me have often wondered whether I also suffer from Tourette syndrome.

In her latest New York Times op-ed entitled "Bridge Over Troubled Politics" (http://www.nytimes.com/2014/01/09/opinion/collins-bridge-over-troubled-politics.html?_r=0), Gail Collins begins:

"We have been through a lot of political scandals. But never before has the nation been roiled by a conspiracy to create a traffic jam.

There’s barely been time to get used to the idea Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey as a potential presidential contender. Now we’re going to have to wonder if he’s a presidential contender who would deliberately create a monster four-day-long backup on the George Washington Bridge to punish a Democratic mayor for not endorsing his re-election."

Yes, Christie's substantial goose is cooked. Time for the Republicans to search for a new candidate to face Hillary Clinton, whose goose is not much less substantial (see: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/right-turn/wp/2014/01/08/hillary-is-back-and-so-are-nonstop-scandals/),  in 2016.
