For the Love of Christie

Chris Christie's career
is dead.

Long live
Chris Christie's career.

The petty low-level mobster
who still believes
he's found refuge in politics

has not completely
ruled out
running for President in 2016

and yesterday
made appearances
in Tennessee

attending a fundraiser
for Republican Senator
Lamar Alexander

and speaking
at a state Republican
dinner in Nashville.

Even the President
of Nashville's Tea Party
Ben Cunningham

called the speaking engagement
"extremely unfortunate"

but he did crash
a bachelorette party
and the ladies loved him

though they probably
didn't bring up
too many

deep political questions
and he didn't make them

so it's really too bad

because were he
not embroiled
in a few too many scandals

the poor guy
would make
a great politician.
