He Owes Snooki an Apology

Gov. Christie’s scandal reminded me of how he had criticized the cast of Jersey Shore for not reflecting well on his state.  I went back and found the language he used when he vetoed tax credits for the show in 2011, calling it “a project which does nothing more than perpetuate misconceptions about the State and its citizens.”

Meanwhile, he’s not perpetuating misconceptions, he’s proving that our negative perceptions of Jersey are true.

If you were trying to get to a job interview or cancer treatment and a drunken, passed-out Snooki blocked your path, you could just step over her and be on your way, but if you had to cross the George Washington Bridge last September, it wasn’t that easy.
