Let's Hear It For The Bully Boys O'The Port Authority Of New York & New Jersey (PANYNJ)

Now, Governor BigBoy (R-NJ) has a defender in his corner: Mayor 9/11 (R-NY) and this dynamic duo has become a political tag team. This pair of neo-Goodfellas embody the worst of NY-NJ politics. Amazingly, Mayor 9/11 did not invoke the attack on the World Trade Center towers in his defense of Governor BigBoy. Mayor 9/11 will really have to stretch to connect Bridgegate to 9/11. Stay tuned. If this is (fair & balanced) chutzpah with brass cojones, so be it.

The surrogate’s chosen. The mystery’s this:
Why Rudy, a man more vindictive than Chris?
It may be a plan that Chris understands fully:
He’s showing the world that he’s not the worst bully.
The mayor’s acts of vengeance would rate a novella.
Giuliani makes Christie resemble Mandela. Ω
