48. See, Somebody Else Is Sorry Too....

everybody's sorry they suspected you of doing bad things. You're a great guy Mr. Governor. Olivia Nuzzi at the Daily Beast is so, so sorry. She's terribly sorry. In the words of Pee Wee Herman, I think she's NOT SORRY AT ALL!

Dear Chris Christie: Sorry We Did Our Job

On CNBC Thursday morning, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie made a simple request: that the media apologize for its unjust treatment of him during Bridgegate.

“I do believe there’s an absolute bias and rush to judgement,” he said. “You all know this. You saw the coverage of me 15 months ago. I was guilty, I had done it. Now we’re 15 months later. Where are the apologies pouring in? Not one thing I said the day after the bridge situation has been proven wrong. Fifteen months later everything that I said the day after that story broke—everything I said—has proven out to be true after three different investigations.”

Further, Christie added, Bridgegate received more scrutiny than more important scandals that had nothing to do with him.

“I think if you objectively looked at it you would say it was [overblown],” he said. “Has there been coverage of the email situation with [Hillary Clinton]? Absolutely. But the intensity of the coverage—and the relentlessness of the coverage—is different. And that’s where the bias is revealed.”

Christie has, as is his nature, graciously handed all of us an opportunity, and I intend to make the most of it.

I would like to apologize.

I would like to apologize to Christie, first, on behalf of everyone who noticed that access lanes to the George Washington Bridge had been inexplicably shut down and wondered why it happened, and how it could have happened without the state’s top lawmaker being—at the very least—aware of it.

And I would like to apologize to Christie on behalf of the children who were late to their first day of school because of the profound traffic jams those lane closures caused, and on behalf of the emergency workers who—instead of sitting in the traffic—were forced to respond to calls on foot.

I’m sorry that Christie’s initial response to this bizarre occurrence in the northern part of his state was indifference, and his response to reporters asking questions total contempt.
