I Don't Usually Like Parody Songs, But This One On The Traffic Scandal Hits All The Right Notes

This so succinctly makes fun of the bad apples in Chris Christie's staff that I just had to share it with you. A little background: on Sept. 9, 2013, Fort Lee, N.J. had an enormous traffic jam, which wasn't really news when it happened. Since then, we found out that Christie's aides caused the traffic jam because the mayor of Fort Lee didn't endorse Christie in his re-election campaign. Government at work, right? How ridiculous is it that people who should be working for us are instead acting like a bunch of frat bros pranking each other? That's where Bruce Springsteen and Jimmy Fallon come in. I'm loving how this icon of New Jersey is highlighting how preposterous this whole situation actually is.
