So, Fast and Furious gets people killed, and it's barely a blip in the news; Slow and Mildly Irked partially shuts down a bridge between New Jersey and NYC for a little while and the media is crawlin' all over it with microscopes. Governor Christie is hardly John the Baptist (though I'm sure he'd be up for a nice plate of honey and locusts) and not my favorite Republican -- but if the weird little people inside my TV and the three who still write newspapers keep making like a combined Salome and Herod, he'll certainly end up a martyr.
(And remember, if horrible things happens to mostly-brown people in Mexico, it's a yawner -- but when nice white folk in New York City are inconvenienced? Migawd, an outrage. But that, for some reason that escapes me, isn't racist.)
