Oh, That Settles It Then...

From Album 5
Imagine -- Chris Christie's selfie of an investigation...cleared him (note:linking to a tweet because the actual story includes audio/video...if you want to see/hear link from there).

Reminds me of nothing so much as Richard Nixon's pathetic attempt to release Watergate tape "transcripts," that turned out to be so sanitized you could have eaten off them. A far cry from the real Dick Nixon -- if you're ever bored, check out an actual tape. Wow -- and not in an awed way.


  1. Wow, what a deal. How would you like to investigate any crimes you may be responsible for? Why, if we ALL could do this, the jails would be empty. Only in America Michael, only in America. The founders must be spinning in their graves.

  2. Yeah, must be nice to be your own judge and jury...hell, at least Huey and Earl Long had to go about it the old fashioned way -- bribes, threats, promises, etc. By the way -- not that I'm a huge fan of the Longs, but damn if they weren't at least trying to help ordinary people...and it's not like their opposition was clean (lily white, maybe, but clean? HELL, no).

    If you go look up either Long on You Tube or similar, it's amazing what they're saying. Openly talking income redistribution. Wow. To use an old saying I first found in AJ Liebling's book about Earl Long, neither could get elected dog catcher these days.

    Aside -- Liebling said something in the book about how dog catcher must be the hardest race to win, since everyone would say about an opponent, "He couldn't get elected dog catcher."

    Have a good weekend...
