Outrage! Gov Chris Christie (R-NJ) Uses State Helicopter And Limo To Get To Son’s Baseball Game

(By Jon Bershad, Mediaite) - New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is taking a little heat for taking time out of his day to go to his son’s high school baseball game, which is ridiculous. He was just being a good dad. Wait, what’s that? People are actually mad that he used a helicopter purchased for $12.5 million of tax payer money to get there? Well, that’s not that bad. He’s a busy guy and he didn’t want to miss the game. Besides, if you’re spending that much on the thing, you might as well use it. Wait, there’s more? He also required a limo to drive him the 100 yards from the landing site to the field? Oh. Yeah, that’s looks pretty bad.
